A quality home inspection will help you:

  • Make an informed buying decision. Almost no home of any age is without imperfections, but some issues can be dealt with easily and inexpensively and others might involve a lot more time, effort and money to address. Know and understand what you are buying before you sign on the dotted line.
  • Learn about the mechanical operations of your new home. Steve will walk through the home with you, the potential buyer, and point out water shut off valves, electrical panels, and heating and cooling units. Most home owners do not need to worry about those items on a daily basis, but if something goes wrong in the future, it is helpful to know.
  • Learn about both the interior and exterior of your home and the various ways maintaining the interior of your home will help maintain the exterior, and vice versa.

What People Are Saying...

  • What a great experience it was working with Steve! He wasn't only the best price I could find, he was also the most knowledgable! He has worked in the trades for over 25 years and really knows his stuff. He is very honest and works above and beyond to give you the most information he can! I would highly recommend him to anyone, especially first time buyers!

  • Steve not only inspected the home, but also taught us as he went. We ended up having 2 different homes inspected because he saved us from buying a home that needed way too much work. Would recommend 1st Choice Inspection to everyone!
    Heather Y.
  • Steve was very thorough and knowledgeable with every detail of our home inspection. I especially love that he suggested ways we might remedy some of the minor issues ourselves. Everything about the inspection was professionally done. We would recommend 1st Choice home inspection to anyone!

  • 1st Choice Inspections is my 1st choice for recommendation if you are looking for a home inspection. They offer highly skilled inspectors with thorough reporting. Digital reports including pictures and videos as well as detailed explanations for each problem area found during the inspection.

  • I had Steve out for a home inspection last week. I was very impressed. He is a wealth of knowledge so even if you are someone who thinks they know everything like me, you will still come out learning something new by the time your inspection is over. Thanks again for a great job.

  • This not being the first house I purchased, I thought it would be an hour or so (for the inspection). He was so thorough and helped guide us through everything... I felt I was a family member to him and it was the first time I met him. I would recommend anyone who's not only looking for a great inspection, but a great person to them.
