Buying a new home is usually a combination of excitement & anticipation.  But these days there’s something else: stress. The real estate market is getting more frustrating for everyone – except vendors.

If you’ve been house hunting for the last year or so, you’re more than acquainted with pre-list inspections and, shall we say, their less than truthful findings by home inspectors who are pandering to listing agents and/or vendors. To help home buyers make sense of what’s going on, we’ve just published, Protect Yourself. It’s a snapshot of the real estate market today and how it affects you.

If you come across one of HomeCore’s pre-list inspections, rest assured you can count on it. And kudos to the listing agents who hire us for wanting the home’s true conditions disclosed which, after all, is what a pre-list inspection is supposed to do.

As in all industries, there is a huge variance in skill sets amongst home inspectors, regardless of industry training & accreditation.  You absolutely need to understand that home inspectors are neither all the same nor equal. Your job is to find the best inspector you can.

Regardless of how you find us, or who pays for an inspection, our only agenda is to provide you, the buyer, the home inspection you deserve.  That alone sets us apart from the majority, with or without qualifications, who are more interested in your money than the service they provide. The hundreds of testimonials speak volumes about what you can expect from Rob Hermann and HomeCore.
