Home Education

Just as important as finding a reliable house is being educated on how to care for that house. Beyond being accomplished InterNACHI Home Inspectors, we are ardent Home Educators, believing that a 30-page inspection report doesn’t mean very much unless it is thoroughly explained to the client.

So what exactly do we provide as Home Educators beyond performing a run-of-the-mill-home inspection? Just as a first time driver needs to learn how to maneuver their vehicle and understand the importance of changing the oil and replacing windshield wiper blades, so also home buyers must learn how their house operates and understand the importance of routine care and maintenance in order to be successful home owners.

As Home Educators, we will:

  • Express the importance of ongoing home maintenance and provide a seasonal maintenance checklist.
  • Identify the location of the main electrical, gas and water shutoffs, as well as where to find the furnace filter and explain the importance of regular replacement/cleaning.
  • Explain service life expectancies and provide a chart for the common life span of each system/component in the home.
  • ​Explain the dangers of moisture penetration into the building envelope, which is the most common cause of home deterioration.
  • Provide a free home maintenance book entitled, Now That You’ve Had A Home Inspection.
  • Thoroughly explain all existing issues found during the home inspection and the implications of these issues, and answer any questions they may have, even after the day of the inspection.​​

Home Education is especially important for First Time Home Buyers, as well as folks trying to sell their home - you must know your product in order to sell it with confidence at your full asking price.
