Welcome to Home Inspections by Pete, Inc.

Buying a home? The process can be stressful. A home inspection is supposed to give you peace of mind, but often has the opposite effect.  You will be asked to absorb a lot of information in a short time.  This often includes a written report, checklist, photographs, environmental reports and what the inspector himself says during the inspection.  All this combined with the seller’s disclosure and what you notice yourself makes the experience even more overwhelming.  What should you do?

Relax.  Most of your inspections will maintenance recommendations, life expectancies and minor imperfections.  These are nice to know aboout.  However, the issues that really matter will fall into four categories:

  • Major defects.  An example of this would be a structural failure.
  • Things that lead to major defects.
  • Things that may hinder your ability to finance, legally occupy or insure the home.
  • Safety hazards, such as exposed, live buss bar in the electric panel.

Anything in these categories should be addressed.  Often a serious problem can be corrected inexpensively to protect both life and property. (especially in categories 2 and 4).

Most sellers are honest and are often surprised to learn of defects uncovered during an inspection.  Realize that sellers are under no obligation to repair everything mentioned in the report.  No home is perfect.  Keep things in perspective.  Do not kill your deal over things that do not matter.  It is inappropriate to demand that a seller address deferred maintenance, conditions already on the seller’s disclosure or nit-picky items.

What Our Clients Say

Years of satisfied clients. Here’s what they have to say about Inspections by Pete, Inc. 
Trust us for your home inspection and become another happy customer!

After our realtor recommended Pete, I called him for a home inspection on a house we are purchasing. What a pleasure it was to deal with him, and he promptly got us scheduled for the next day. Since we are from out of the area, our daughter met him and he proceeded to give the house a thorough inspection. That evening, he not only called and went over his findings, but also emailed a detailed report with pictures. Thanks to his wind mitigation inspection, we were able to send it to insurance companies which saved a considerable amount on the quote. If you need a home inspection, you'll be happy you used him!

Pete was great! Even a month after I had a question emailed him and got a quick response. I would refer him to everyone.

I have worked with Pete for 7 years. I have been buying and flipping houses during that time. My realtor commented he has the most detailed and photograph filled inspections she has seen. He knows what issues are concerns vs. minor repairs. Pete has always fit inspections into my schedule. Thanks Pete.
