Welcome Back, Bill Duncan, Home Inspector Extraordinaire!
Glad to have you back on the job, Bill Duncan, of Home Status Inspection Company. It seems like not so long ago, I received a note from you letting me know you were taking two months off for a knee replacement and offering me referral information.
Today, I am happy to hear that you are back on the job and ready to inspect those houses that I am helping my buyers purchase.
When you find a good resource in this business, it is important to hang on tight. Bill, you are just such a resource. With Home Inspectors, there are a couple of things that I look for:
- Thorough in their evaluation
- Not alarmist in their reporting
- Good rapport with buyers
- Strong working knowledge of home systems
Bill provides all of this to my clients.
I guess that my true measure of a home inspector is whether or not I would refer him to a buyer who is buying one of my listings. I think the answer is no. I am not trying to hide anything, but I am all for the buyer hiring someone who might not be as thorough or as experienced with home inspections. Since the home inspection is just another negotiation point, why would I recommend a home inspector who is so good at finding undetected problems and potential issues? I think I will just keep Bill as a resource for my buyers!
Welcome back, Bill! I can't wait to get you out working again soon.
