What To Expect

My Brochure


                                                             My inspections take two to three hours on average.  I finish the report after leaving the property and email it to the client the same day.  I can send printed copies, or print on-site, if needed.

 The referrals I receive are often direct, or can come from a number of sources.  Once a client has hired me, I contact the Listing Agent.

Although there are no standards as yet for Residential or Commercial Inspectors in Michigan, I have been Licensed in Wisconsin (since they began regulating Home Inspectors…1999) and conduct my Inspections using their standards and those of InterNACHI (where I am certified).  I am also certified as a Master Inspector through the Master Inspector Certification Board (the Home Inspection industie’s highest designation).  It is understandable that you, as a Real Estate Professional, may find differences among the services provided by the Inspector. 

Bay Area Home Inspection, LLC is committed to providing the best possible service to each of our clients.  This is why I offer on-line payment and appointment scheduling and is also why each of my Inspections conform to accepted standards in the Home Inspection industry.

Prior to the Inspection, you can expect that I will personally contact the Listing Agent to arrange entry to the property.  I will also ask for a disclosure statement.

All of the Utilities must be turned on including main shut off devices for electric, gas, oil, water prior to the inspection.  I will confirm this with the Listing Agent and follow-up with an email confirmation prior to the Inspection.  If the Utilities are not turned on as noted above, I will be unable to conduct the Inspection and will notify the client.
