Why do you hire a home inspector? To save you from financial ruin and an unbelievable amount of unforeseen work/stress. Ken is the only reason we are finally closing on our dream home Tuesday morning on a home we are so proud and excited to buy... And we avoided spending, or I should say wasting, $150,000 on a subpar gut rehab done by a "Quick flipper" Who calls himself a "contractor" Don't risk complicating your life and ruining it by getting duped. Hire Ken to mitigate all risk in your transaction. I should mention upfront that both times I needed him to inspect a home for me he managed to do it with little notice and he drove at least an hour and a half or two hours each way to make it to me. He's exactly what you want in a home inspector. Caring, modern, experienced. The next time you wonder whether spending the extra money on a home inspector is actually worth it, remember the review that told you that this man save me at least 150K. He helped us see things like how the seller had demonstrated corner cutting that was unexplainable and so obviously unacceptable. The siding was even touching the dirt on the ground, causing moisture to wick up through the plywood walls. All the wood throughout the entire ranch home was warped. While the seller blamed his subcontractor, Ken knew the real reason: moisture. Ken has what a good home inspector needs – of course you need someone with integrity and expertise. However what he others on top is an unshakable drive to get up every day and make a difference in people's lives in a real way you can feel. After working with Ken you and your significant other can make a better decision to either run for the hills or run to your mortgage broker or bank to make a happy decision after inspecting the house. Instead of a nightmare, we are moving into a house that is $100K less and actually turnkey. So turnkey in fact, that it has endless hot water with a tankless high efficient furnace and water heater in one, that has a 12"x18 wall mounted furnace beauty like I've never seen before. We don't even have to touch the toilets to flush. Patience + home inspector = dreams coming true. These are my two prerequisite and rule for the equation for anyone buying a home who wants a relatively stress-free transaction - as little as it could be anyway. He is somebody who I have hired multiple times and have recommended to every real estate agent in my area.

Charlie was excellent! We had him inspect a property for pre-purchase in MA. He was so thorough, going over every nook and cranny, giving us step by step details of what he was looking for and what he saw. He was also very open to answering our questions, or concerns, and teaching us about things as he went along. As a structural engineer, he really knows his stuff and is very detail oriented. His pricing was extreamly reasonable as well. We would definitely recommend him to anyone!

Both my wife and I were concerned as we are planning on selling our home in 3 to 5 years. We wanted to gauge what problem areas we had to address so we contacted Wiseman Home Inspection. Jeremy was personable and provided real insights as to where we needed to focus our attention before we put the house on the market. I would highly recommend his services. We had imagined several trouble areas and through his inspection we found that some were not a problem. He also was able to pinpoint a couple of trouble spots that we had not noticed. We are now utilizing his informative written analysis to address the areas we need to repair before we sell.

Personal touches. I’m not hard to reach. I’m available around your schedule, not the other way around. I’ve worked until midnight researching properties for clients. Some agents think their job ends with planting a sign in your front yard... that’s when mine begins. ( metaphorically speaking ) and I do all of my open houses personally. I don’t get asking a junior inexperienced agent to be the face of your home.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a home inspection?

A home inspection is a visual inspection performed by a trained professional to determine the condition of a home’s main elements. The inspection usually takes several hours, during which the professional takes multiple photos and notes, tracking information for a final report. After the inspection, the pro will create a printed report, complete with photos and detailed information, summarizing the condition of the house. A home inspection is often used by potential home buyers prior to purchase to determine if there are larger issues (such as dry rot or a faulty foundation) that are not immediately visible to the untrained eye but that would cost a lot of money to resolve. Home inspections are also used by real estate agents and home sellers to address any concerns before putting a home on the market. Longtime homeowners can also schedule a home inspection to get a snapshot of their current home condition and identify any issues that need to be addressed. A home inspection is not a legal document that can be used for divorce or estate settlements, nor can it be used to secure loans or mortgages.

What does a real estate agent do?

Real estate agents help their clients buy, sell, and rent commercial and residential properties. There are also real estate agents that sell industrial and agricultural real estate, but the majority sell residential properties. To become a real estate agent, you must be at least 18 years old, successfully complete real estate courses, and pass a real estate exam. Be sure to check for any required licensing, too. Often real estate agents will earn 5 percent to 6 percent of the total home sale price for their work in representing their client. Typically this commission is split equally between the buyer’s agent and the seller’s agent. Here is an overview of what a real estate agent does, according to the United States Department of Labor:

  • Represent clients who are looking to buy, sell and rent properties.
  • Stay knowledgeable about regional real estate prices, mortgages, market conditions and related information, and advise clients accordingly.  
  • Determine competitive market prices by comparing properties.
  • Create and publicize lists of properties for sale, including details such as location and features.
  • Market properties through advertisements, open houses and listing services.
  • Show prospective buyers or renters properties.
  • Present purchase offers to sellers for consideration.
  • Mediate negotiations between buyer and seller.
  • Ensure that all terms of purchase contracts are met.
  • Prepare documents, such as loyalty contracts, purchase agreements and deeds.

How do you find a good home inspector?

A home inspection should tell you the true condition of a home. A competent home inspector closely inspects your home’s structure and foundation, looks for termites and signs of problems like mold, checks the wiring to ensure it’s in good condition, and investigates the HVAC system, among other items. To find a good home inspector, first research whether home inspection is licensed in your area; not all states require licensure.

If there is no regulatory body that licenses home inspection in your state, there are other ways to make sure you are hiring a trustworthy professional. Carefully look into the person’s reviews and ask for references. Ask if they are committed to continuing education, and whether they are active members in any reputable home inspector organizations. Some organizations that recognize and/or certify home inspectors are the American Society of Home Inspectors, National Association of Certified Home Inspectors, and American Home Inspectors Training. Don’t be shy about asking to see credentials and licensing.

What's the difference between a real estate broker and an agent?

Real estate agents and real estate brokers both help clients buy, sell, and rent residential and commercial properties. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, real estate brokers are licensed to manage their own real estate businesses. Real estate agents cannot have their own real estate office and must work under a broker. Real estate brokers often have real estate firms and employ real estate agents. Those real estate agents may be employees of the firm, or they may work on contract and earn part of any commission they bring into the firm.

If you are a homeowner ready to sell or a buyer in the market for a new home, either a real estate broker or a real estate agent can help you achieve your goal. What is more important than their title is their track record and client success stories. When interviewing real estate agents or brokers to help you buy or sell a home, ask about their recent sales history as compared with the original listing prices. If you’re selling a home, ask how they would market your home and what price they would list it at. Whether you hire an agent or broker, you want a professional who will have your best interests at heart.

What should you look for in a real estate agent?

When you’re hiring a real estate agent you want to find a qualified pro who can negotiate the best deal for your home — whether you’re buying or selling. Reading reviews will help you weed out obvious bad operators; you want to work with someone who treats their clients with fairness and respect. That said, you also want someone who can play hardball and maximize your real estate deal. Ask for references from recent clients, and be sure to call them.

Experts encourage you to interview more than one prospective real estate agent before hiring. A home sale or home purchase is a big deal — sometimes the biggest deal in a person’s life — and you want to find an agent who will work hard for you. In today’s market, having a real estate agent who is social media savvy and has an attractive online presence is critical. Ask the agent how they plan to market your house. Review their listings, and ask yourself if they have professional photos with homes that are professionally staged. If the answer is no, they might not have the marketing savvy you’re looking for. Ask what price they would list your house at and why. Pay attention to how they communicate with you during your initial interviewing phase. Are they too busy to respond for several days? Are they clear and helpful? This information is a clue to how they’ll engage during the entire process.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
