Why get a home inspection?

A home inspection includes a thorough examination of the entire home from the roof to under the house. Whether the client is a seller or buyer of the home, the inspection helps reduce the risk and stresses associated with buying a home. A visual and operational inspection will identify areas that need to be addressed. Even if there  are no problems noted, it is well worth the assurance that the home is in good and operational condition.

- B.H., June 2022
John’s inspection was timely and thorough his explanations were easy to follow and understand.I would use John again in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to have a home inspection.
- D.C., December 2021
The inspection for a home under contract was completed in a professional manner with the inspector being very objective, not favoring the seller or buyer but simply providing honest and thorough information about every aspect of the home. Although the inspection report revealed some significant issues and damaged areas that would require expensive repairs, we were very grateful that these matters were brought to our attention now rather than being a surprise after we may have continued with this purchase. I highly recommend John Goad for a comprehensive, honest, and understandable home inspection report.
- P.S., CLARKSVILLE TN, August 2021
We have used your services before and would recommend you to anyone needing your services.

- C.G., Clarksville TN, September 2019
John provided a very quick turn around to get our inspection complete within our allotted time frame, and not only was he fast, he was extremely efficient. He was recommended to me by a colleague in the construction industry because of his due diligence and attention to detail and I am so glad that we took their advice. I highly recommend him.
- F.F., June 2019
Thanks for the comprehensive inspection, and quick turnaround of the report.

Great inspector,saved me a 100,000.00 dollar mistake
- R.G., January 2019
John, thank you for the thorough report, provides me and the builder and opportunity to correct these issues prior to closing. The pictures, location and details were great and simplifies the issues to be corrected.
- J.M., December 2018
Best in the Clarksville area!

Love the clarity of John's reports and the fact that a repair list can be created from it so easily, with pictures and explanation. It make makes everyone's job (both agents and buyer/sellers) much easier!
- R.R., October 2018
My wife and I met John, he is friendly, professional and very thorough. We would recommend him to anyone who needs to know anything about a house
- A.D., September 2018
We had 2 home inspections and John was hands down the better of the two. John was outstanding he took his time was patient with all our questions was very thorough and knowledgeable. you will not find better than this man and I will never use any one else nor recommend any one else.

Thank You again! I feel better about the home knowing you were the inspector.
- M.G., May 2018
You did a great job inspecting the home, even as I followed along and aggravated you with a million questions you still answered them and done your job very thoroughly. I appreciate everything you done and would recommend you anytime. Thank you.
- N.T., January 2018
In my opinion, he is the best there is. When purchasing a home you need to know everything that needs to be looked at, fixed or is considered alright and he is very thorough right down to the smallest of things which in my opinion is so important. It is also greatly needed for negotiations and knowing what you're looking at out of pocket if a mutual agreement is not reached between the buyer & seller. I'm sooo thankful the did my inspection. He also was available when I called with questions and even came back out to do a couple of quick fixes when I didn't know who to call!!!
- C.P., October 2017
Thank you for the thorough inspection!

Honestly, I thought this house was in perfect condition and was hesitant to hire an inspector. When I viewed this report I was amazed at how thorough he was. I would definitely recommend him and I will always use his services in the future. I called around to several people. He was the friendliest, and the most affordable. I expressed that I am a first time home buyer. He called me back and explained the process and answered any questions that I had about the process. That isn't even his job. He went above and beyond. I am 100% Satisfied!

- D.H., Nashville TN, January 2016
Mr. Goad was very professional both when scheduling the inspection and on the day of the Home Inspection. While he was inspecting the home, if there were issues that he saw, he took the time to explain what the issue was, possible fixes and if it was or was not a major concern. He was very thorough in his inspection and in the final detailed report. Would highly recommend his services if you are looking for a good quality home inspection.
