I used Chris for two home inspections in June, 2017.
I was buying a new townhouse, and didn't really think it necessary to have a home inspectrion for a new build. I'm glad I went with Chris. Despite being a new build, he was able to document several deficiencies (crack on the front door, shower not draining, etc) that I wouldn't have noticed on a walk through. My realtor was then able to use these as a negotiating point with the developer.
Chris also did an inspection on the condo I was selling. I believe having the inspection report available for potential buyers helped the condo to sell quickly and above the asking price. It also helped me as a seller to do a few small repairs prior to sale.

Hi J, Thanks so much for your feedback. It is nice of you to relay the benefits of a pre-listing inspection and I am glad it worked well for you. Getting a quick close and over asking price is always a good thing for sellers. As you mentioned getting inspections on new homes and town houses is important, we record a number of deficiencies each time. Some of these are just small items and usual suggested upgrades, the issues of concern are the ones that will cause further damage as time passes. There have even been a couple major issues on new builds caught this year, thankfully not on your place. Good luck in your new North Vancouver town house. Sincerely, Chris Thompson
