Buying or Selling Your Home Is One of the Most Expensive Decisions You'll Ever Make
Have your inspections performed the “Wright” Way, using Affordable Canadian Home Inspections.
Hi, my name is Al Wright, owner of Affordable Home Inspections based in Hamilton, which is an independent home inspection company serving Southern Ontario. As a home inspector we work for you the client giving you an unbiased report on the condition of your home at the time of the inspection. With my years of experience in home inspections, renovations and as a real estate investor we can help reduce your risks and provide you with peace of mind in your home buying or selling decisions. During the 2 1/2
to 3 hour inspection we will demonstrate our skills and knowledge necessary to perform the best quality inspection on your home. We perform a 1600 Point Home Inspection and provide a free copy of the Homeowner's Handbook at no charge. The home inspections end result, the report can give you leverage to solve any problems addressed before closing, making the buying process easier and less stressful.
If you wanted to get a $50,000 sport car painted, would you go with the guy offering a $100 paint job or go with someone who may cost more but has years of experience and will give you the best quality of service for your buck. Don't be fooled with home inspectors offering lower prices and / or discounts. This is a red flag that an inexperienced inspector uses to promote business, you get what you pay for. You don't want to penny pinch when inspecting your home as it is one of the most expensive investment you may ever make and where your home will be for many years to come.
You can't replace a home inspectors. Even someone who has some experience in areas of house construction (Plumber, electrician, carpenter, etc); they will not provide you with the overall knowledge and experience required to perform a thorough 1600 point home inspection. The National Certified Home Inspectors require a minimum of 200 academic hours of training. My training through Carlson Dunlop has provided with over 420 Academic accredited home inspection training hours. Also as a member of InterNACHI, I am required to participate in a minimum of 24 hours of home inspection training every year. At present I perform over 50 hours of additional home inspection training (More than double the national average).
I strongly recommend that the client be present during the home inspection, so they can visually see what will be in the report and give us the opportunity to discuss things as they are discovered. We have found that by having the client present it gives us a better way to communicate any defects that are found in the home. It also gives us the opportunity to discuss possible solutions, that can save you time and money, putting the client more at ease when major defects are found.
