The Best Guarantees in the Business

Home Buy Back Guarantee

If the client’s participating Certified Professional Inspector® misses anything in the inspection, InterNACHI will buy back the home.  It’s that simple.

There’s no deductible and no “weasel” clauses.

Here are the no-frills terms of this groundbreaking Buy-Back Guarantee:

  • Honored for 90 days after closing.
  • Valid for home inspections performed for home buyers by participating InterNACHI members.
  • We'll pay whatever price the client paid for the home.
  • The guarantee excludes homes with material defects not present at the time of the inspection, or not required to be inspected per InterNACHI's Residential Standards of Practice.

Home buyers can buy a home worry-free when they have it inspected by a participating InterNACHI member. If they’re not happy within the first 90 days after buying it, InterNACHI will buy back the home at full price.

  • Simply inform me if you go through with the purchase of the home and you will be enrolled in the buy back guarantee program at no cost to you!
As some homes inspected do not result in a purchase only home owners that inform me of intent to buy can be enrolled.

100% Satisfaction Guarantee

“My word of honor to you- I am so confident you will be happy with me as your inspector, that if you are not satisfied with my service at the end of the inspection before I leave the property, simply tell me so and you do not have to pay.”

Price BEAT Guarantee

If you can find a home inspection in my service area with the same quality for less money, simply show me a written quote or direct me to the site and I will beat that price.  I feel confident that I am already the best value, but if you can find a better value I will one up them. 


not so frequently asked questions

Why are your prices lower than the competitors?  If you get what you pay for, am I getting less?

I simply charge you less for a full inspection because I can.  I keep my overhead low by letting my reputation speak for itself instead of pouring money into endless ad campaigns, I don't participate in paying for referrals, I don't pay franchise fees, which can be over 20% of an inspectors income, and I don't pay lower level "inspectors" as employees.  
All of these savings allow me to keep my prices lower, and my service quality high. 

Other inspectors seems to sell more ancillary services like home warranties, repair services, or mold removal... Why don't you offer these services?

The entire process of buying a home is complicated and full of unexpected expenses. By keeping my service to home inspecting only I accomplish two things-  Streamlining an already complicated process, and most importantly, focus on inspecting, not up-selling ancillary services. 

What is the difference between InterNACHI, and ASHI?

InterNACHI - International Association of Certified Home Inspectors
ASHI - American Society of Home Inspectors
They are both well respected associations with high standards that handle the vast majority of certified home inspectors.  Neither association issues licenses, that is a function of the state.  ASHI is older by a few years and initially set the standards in home inspecting.  InterNACHI picks up where ASHI leaves off and takes the trade to an improved standard. They offer more services, and have a greater emphasis on continued training of inspectors to stay up to date on all current building practices.

"Pay to Play"
I am Using Keller Willaims (or fill in the blank). You're not on my agents pre-approved list of inspectors, why?

Some Real Estate offices keep a list of pre-approved vendors.  I want to be very clear...You are allowed to use any inspector you want, it is completely your choice, not an agents, no two ways about that.  Your agent may have simply never worked with me before, but most likely your agent works in a office that creates a list of vendors that PAY to be on the list with no other qualifications other than paying them.   To get on the approved vendor list you basically pay a large fee twice a year, and host a lunch twice a year.  There are no other skill based qualifications to it.
