Like everyone else in this hot and crazy real-estate market, we bought our first house with no condition. I didn't see the need to hire an inspector under these circumstances. But at the recommendation of our friends, we hired Alan to inspect our newly purchased home and let us know about the big maintenance costs that we should budget for.
I met Alan on a Saturday, he was kind enough to accommodate inspecting the house on a weekend. He's professional and super detailed. I was impressed by the level of detail and care he has shown during the inspection. He spent over 2 hours examining every room inside the house, and using an air drone, he scanned the roof.
I received a 50 page report from him about every fix that I need to make, the justification for the recommendation as well as an explanation for why this an important piece of the house.
The report underscores the fixes that must be done now vs. later with an approximate cost so that I can accurately budget for these costs when they are due.
He is also super prompt with his email responses and generous with the information.
I highly recommend Alan to anyone who would like to know if there are critical issues with their homes and wants to budget for the immediate and future maintenance costs.
