About Our Home Inspection Resource THE HOME INSPECTION
is intended to educate home buyers (and sellers) about the home
inspection process.

   In the past, many of my home inspection clients were ill-informed
about their inspection. 

They had so many questions:

What will the inspector look for?
How do I prepare for the inspection?
Should I be present for the home inspection?
Are other services like radon testing included in the price?
All these questions and more are answered here to help your
home purchase move along to the next step.  

Who Are We?

    My name is Ken Reed, and I maintain this website. I am a former
home inspector who is familiar with all aspects of home inspections.
So why spend our time maintaining a website?

   Because people need and deserve accurate, unbiased information
about home inspections and mortgages. For most, buying a home is
one of the biggest commitments and expenditures that they will ever
make, and we feel that there is a need for a resource that will provide
the knowledge that people need without an ulterior motive. 

   We're not selling anything - we're not in the business of
selling home inspections, servicing your mortgage, promoting
a home 
inspection organization, bank, or lending institution. 

   I realized that the best part of performing home inspections was
HELPING people- alerting them to potential issues with the home they
were purchasing, educating them about their home inspection report,
and doing my part to help them realize the American dream of owning
a home. 

   In early 2011, after burning the candle at both ends for many years,
I realized that I had too many pokers in the fire. Family, hobbies, and
other work commitments took up a huge slice of my time, and
something needed to be put aside. 

   At that point, I asked myself what I liked about performing home
inspections, and came to the conclusion that I liked being a source of
helpful information to those who came to me for an inspection. You
know - the guy who could answer their questions, calm their anxiety
about issues that were found, and simply inform them about the
different systems and components in the home. I wanted to continue
doing that. 

   And...I discovered that I liked to tinker around with building and
maintaining websites.

    So, I converted my home inspection "business" site into a source
of unbiased information about inspections. The information that is
included here serves everyone

   The home inspection client can learn about their inspection, the
home inspector can learn a few new bits of information, and the real 
estate agent can be assured that their buyers are getting unbiased,
non-alarmist information about perhaps one of the most anxious aspects
of buying a home. 

   It's no secret that the home inspection can "make or break" a real
estate transaction; this website seeks to do neither. Let's face it - home
inspectors are in the business of selling home inspections, and their
websites may attempt to raise 
questions in the mind of the potential 
client in order to secure their business.

This resource presents information in such a way that home buyers are
informed about the different aspects of the inspection rather than alarmed
at what their home inspection may bring. 

Real estate agents and realty companies are encouraged to link
to our 
resource so that their buyers can be educated about the home
inspection process.
The buyer's mortgage questions can also be addressed
in order to streamline the 
mortgage application and get them on the fast
track to home ownership.
