Choose a home inspector using HomeGauge Services
For home buyers or sellers, choosing a competent or better home inspector is no easy task. Once it was as easy as requiring them to belong to a national inspector association like ASHI, CAHPI, InterNACHI, NAHI and others. Now many states require inspectors to be licensed and follow similar Standards of Practice (search now). So, it is more difficult for the buyer or seller to choose an inspector based solely on the inspector's affiliation. Your criteria for the inspector should not only be higher than belonging to an affiliation, it should enable you to work more efficiently with the inspection process, including after inspection discussions with the agent and the buyer or seller.
Inspectors that use HomeGauge Services can provide better service to all parties involved:
- Inspection Report: Produce an inspection report with pictures in an easily readable format. (samples) This includes a Summary section with pictures for a quick glance.
- Report Delivery: Most HomeGauge users deliver within a day!
- Internet Ready Report: Provide the report securely on the internet so it can be viewed, printed or forwarded as a link fast and easily (not like a big, bulky and slow PDF attachment file).
- Easy Report Forwarding: Provide easy forwarding for the agent (with the buyer's permission) to the selling agent and/or seller.
- Report Storage: Store the report for the buyer or seller and provide access to them from any computer with Internet access, anytime, anywhere.

Help Please...Where did my home report go??? We had a home inspection done on May 5th and the report was on this website. Now when I log in it is gone and shows no reports for us. I need it so I can print the receipt and get reimbursed. May 18, 2011 3:17 PM
jackson3027(Buyer/seller I just recently had a home inspected by Mr Timothy Ray.He was the most profesional person in his field that i have been associated with. He took his time going from the top of the property to the bottom. he explains everything in terms you can undersstand. I was impressed with his open and honest comments on what need to be taken care of . vast knowledge in all areas pretaining to your home. will use him again and again Apr 8, 2011 10:15 AM
Explained everything, made it understandable. He is a ver friendly and profesional person as many have said he tells it like it is good or bad. When he walks away from the job you knowhat you have to fix or purchase, which makes it easy on the buyer. Thanks Rickie and Katherine Oxyer 03-03-2011 (910) 465-2947 Mar 3, 2011 11:02 PM

Portalatin7 (Realtor) I Love the Job Dominic D'Agustino with Homepride inspections Does for my clients. He is always very careful and thorough, gets into everything to make sure it's in good condition, and even when it is not in good condition he is honest and specific enough to let us know what is happening. My clients feel confident enough in tagging along after him during the inspection because he explains things and lets them know how to take care for the things in the home. I always recommend him as an excellent Inspector. Oh and he also takes pictures of his findings to make it easier for people to understand everything and at the same time we are able to use the pix if we need to send them to renegotiate a contract because of a finding.

Brian Halliday with Halliday Home Inspections did an excellent job inspecting our first home. He was knowlegable on all aspects especially the structure of the home, due to his experience as a General Contractor. I felt very well informed and secure in the home buying process. I highly recommend him if you are in the Southern California area! C Graham Nov 28, 2010 Jan 5, 2011 4:21 PM

You will probably want to send your client's information directly to your inspector. If you have any questions, please email email@example.com. Apr 19, 2010 10:07 AM

Joyceram(Real Estate Broker) James Buren, The Home Inspector, I met many years ago with his wife, when they moved to Markham, Ontario. Since that time, I have used James many, many times to take care of my inspections mainly because of his honesty, his tactfulness, his incredible knowledge and people skills, in spite of some difficult questions, at times. He answers questions and concerns with such ease and takes the time to explain the inner workings of all systems that are required to run a home smoothly and efficiently. My Clients have been completely satisfied and more informed regarding their decision to Buy their new Home or Condo every time. Thanks & keep up the good work, James! Sep 10, 2009 3:10 PM
