Discount Home Inspections
Home inspections in Louisville and Southern Indiana can vary greatly. Some home inspectors perform home inspections in less than an hour and charge less than $200. Does anyone really believe that you can inspect a home in 45 minutes? You get what you pay for. There is no free lunch. Penny wise, pound foolish. I could go on and on, but you get the idea.
Before you hire a bargain priced home inspector, do yourself a favor and request my report “7 Things you Must Know to Avoid Hiring the Wrong Home Inspector.” Most people wouldn’t go into brain surgery by choosing a doctor based on price. Most people wouldn’t invest $100,000 or more with an investment adviser who was picked solely on price. You would be surprised at how many people are drawn into the thought that all home inspections are the same. Folks, this is not like cutting grass or painting your garage. You are – in many cases – making one of the largest purchases of your life.
I deal regulary with clients who had home inspectors come out and do home inspections as cheap as $ 120 ! The inspectors were there for 35-60 minutes and gave a report that was almost worthless. In the past few weeks, I have been called in after a house has been inspected (on 3 different occasions) due to problems not found by baragin inspectors.
At one of the inspections the inspector did not get on the roof (it was a shallow pitch), did not enter or even look in the attic because 2 shelves were in the way, and did not enter the crawl space (was fully accessible). During my inspection of this property, I found 10 HVAC branch lines that were rusted through and dumping heat into the crawl big time! My client was tickled pink because the seller took care of the repair. Can you imagine finding out about this after you moved in? Wow, what a big problem to be dumped on you!
Recently I found a serious moisture problem that had caused approximately $25,000 worth of damage to a house. You talk about a money pit! The seller had no choice but to fix the problem.

You deserve results, not a blind home inspection – the difference is huge!
Simply put, I strive to keep you from buying the money pit! I will educate you in a neutral, non-scary manner about the house you’re considering. I will not settle for being anything less than the best home inspector you can hire regardless of price. If I don’t live up to what I promise, your inspection will be FREE.
