John Calkins / Home Inspector in Auburn, New York

Buying or selling a home is probably the biggest investment you will ever be involved with. The stress related to making such a large purchase can be overwhelming. A professional home inspection will significantly reduce your risk by exposing facts that you need to know. We at Ideal Inspection truly enjoy helping our clients achieve a better home buying or selling experience.

Your comprehensive narrative report will be archived on line for your convenience. There are basically two types of reports, checklist and narrative. Handwritten checklist reports can leave a large portion of information open for interpretation. Ideal Inspection has chosen to use a narrative report to better describe the observations made. Having this report stored online gives you the chance to support the green movement by viewing or saving the document. For approximately every 270 reports viewed (not printed), we will save a tree. This may not sound like much, but just think if all professional home inspections throughout the USA were viewed instead of printed!

Ideal Inspection’s room by room inspection report is second to none. Most narrative reports can be general when describing the location of a specific problem. Our report breaks down the observations room by room. Our report also includes a 116 page Home Maintenance Manual, free phone consultation for as long as you own your home, and a 110 day money back gaurantee. We feel that with all of these items in mind; we have the best product on the market today.

As prelisting specialists we take special consideration for the home seller. We will work with the real estate agent and the seller to provide a home that is ready to sell. We will provide a sign in the front yard explaining that this house has been pre-inspected by Ideal Inspection. We will also provide a section on our website that is devoted to the homes that have been pre-inspected by Ideal Inspection. This section on the website will send the potential buyer straight to your real estate agent. This process will give your home the edge it needs in today’s market, and provide a much smoother transaction for all.
