Upfront and clear about everything on the home inspection

I had an Inspection on an Island and we have some time limitations, he responded and worked within the time we agreed upon, He Didnt mind me shadowing him so I could get a better handle into the changes and the priority of the changes i should make into our new bought property. I do highly recommend him for any home inspection.

Hi Jose, Thanks for your thoughts. As you know, I am not really a boat person. That said it is a nice change of pace for a ride to an inspection whether it is in sunshine or blowing snow, preferably sunshine. The properties are always interesting. They are a little different from daily city living. Good luck with your venture. I was glad I could help. Sincerely, Chris Thompson

Home Inspection

Chris was recommended to us by our relator. He was able to complete the home inspection within a couple days after we contacted him. We feel like he did a very thorough job and we were very happy with his report, which included photos and detailed descriptions of each item included in his inspection. I especially liked how he included a rating system in his report to give you an idea of which items would require fixing immediately and which ones could be repaired eventually. He has also been very open to follow up questions if needed. Thanks for your help Chris!

Hi Meagan, Thanks for hiring Haystack Home Inspections and leaving such a nice review. I want to talk briefly about a subject you touched on in your first sentence, realtor recommended inspectors. This is a touchy subject for many people in the real estate and inspection community because of the possibility of conflict of interest. Will the inspector have your best interests at heart or the interests of the referring agent? Frankly it comes down to do you trust your real estate agent. If you do not trust your agents recommendations maybe you should not be working with them to begin with. Experienced realtors have worked in conjunction with numerous inspectors and often make suggestions because of the good or bad experiences of their past clients. Be aware agents should always be passing along a number of inspectors, normally three or more. I would also suggest that you do a little research of your own on the inspectors they recommend and maybe a few more for good measure. Pick the inspector you feel comfortable with, in the end you will likely be living with your decision for quite some time. Thanks again for your thoughts and bringing an important subject to light. Sincerely, Chris Thompson

Home inspection

We were referred to Chris by our house agent. Chris was very knowledgeable and professional when inspection the house. There was more detail things that push us back an extra hour and he didn’t charge us extra. We got the detail report back by next day to our email and using that we got a discount on the house we wanted to purchase. We will be referring Chris to our family and friends if anyone need an inspector. Thank you Chris

Hi Kenny, I look forward to helping your family and friends. It's true sometimes an inspection may take a little longer than expected. This is just part of the job and you will never be expected to pay more for something I failed to plan for. Sincerely, Chris Thompson

Hi Lukas, So happy we could help with your Vancouver condo inspection. It is so important for clients like yourself to get a true understanding about the building they are potentially buying into. With some buildings still holding out on getting up to date depreciation and engineering reports it becomes that much more important. Thanks for sharing your Haystack Home Inspections experience. Sincerely, Chris Thompson

Home inspection

From Anne B - Chris went above and beyond what was necessary for a home inspection. He even helped me measure the rooms after his inspection was over. His verbal summary was encouraging and his written report comprehensive and easy to understand. I would certainly recommend him to family and friends.

Hi Anne, Helping you measure up your Vancouver condo is definitely beyond the call of duty. Fortunately, the afternoon allowed that extra time. It is certainly nice to read that you found both the verbal summary and written report to your liking. Sincerely, Chris Thompson

The inspection was very thorough and professional. Chris was available on short notice and was able to accommodate our schedule. He answered all of our questions on the spot and followed up after sending the report to see if we needed any further clarification. Overall, it was a very reassuring and positive experience. Happy to recommend his services to others who're looking for a reliable inspection company.

Home Inspection

I conducted a home inspection this summer with Haystack. Chris Thompson's style of reporting and advice was key in negotiating a reduced price with the seller. His report and advice will be the guide for the ongoing repairs and maintenance at our new home. The greatest value of Haystack is the post-inspection services. Chris made himself available to address our questions. I would strongly recommend Haystack when buying a home.

Hone Inspection

Chris was recommended to me by someone with good reviews who had stopped doing home inspections. I saw Chris's online reviews and I was encouraged that he would be the right person for the job. Chris answered my call promptly and he showed tremendous flexibility to schedule a home inspection with short notice. Chris was thorough and professional on the day of the inspection and he let us know everything we needed to be aware of before deciding whether or not to purchase our home. His final report was well illustrated and detailed, yet still easy to understand. I would recommend Chris to anyone else who is in need of a home inspection.
