You will benefit from our services if. . .

You want to know the truth about the condition of the home you are buying. You understand that there is no such thing as a perfect house. You don’t want the facts sugar-coated, but also don’t want mountains made out of mole hills. You want to know what you’re getting into, good or bad.

You’re not the type that goes with the lowest bidder. You value quality and are willing to pay a little extra for it. 

You can’t afford to be surprised in six months with costly repairs due to structural or maintenance issues that went undetected during the inspection process.

You may be willing to make repairs or do needed maintenance on your new home after moving in, but want things put in perspective. It’s one thing to need a new roof, but what if the sheathing and structure need replacement as well?

Prefer to negotiate from a place of strength, with all the facts in hand. It isn’t unusual for even the home seller to not be aware of costly needed repairs; most of the times they just rely on their real estate agent to price the house without taking condition or imminent expensive repairs into consideration.

We rely on referrals from satisfied customers.  Our clients appreciate thoroughness, experience and professionalism.  Next go to The Inspection Process: What to expect.  Also be sure to read  Success Stories to see how Shipley and Associates, Inc. have helped people just like you.
