Home Inspection in New Westminster, Vancouver, Richmond, and all lower mainland.
I remember buying my first home. I was starry-eyed at one particular home right off the bat. Fortunately, I’d been involved in the building trades so I could see the value in having some idea of what sort of problems to look for. At first glance everything seemed normal to good. But upon closer inspection, there were tell-tale signs that all was not right.
In the end, I passed on the house. It had significant structural issues that had been covered over with a cheap reno and some good paint. That moment left a significant impact on me and, when it came time to consider a new career, I gravitated strongly to the field of home inspections. My work consists of providing objective and accurate guidance to people like the buyer I was – folks who really need a professional opinion to counter the tendency to fall in love at-first-glance with aspects of a house. With luck, the home will be sound and any problems that are identified during the inspection will not be deal-breakers.
Another aspect of my work that’s equally enjoyable is working with home-owners who are looking to sell their home – perhaps down-sizing as empty nesters. The information that I can provide them with as an objective set of professional eyes may help them maximize the potential value their home’s sale by identifying and ealing with problems big and small that may dissuade buyers.
