Is It Wise to Buy That Home?

Before you head to the closing on your new home, make sure you've had it professionally inspected.

A home inspection is a visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a home. If you are thinking of buying a house, co-op or condominium, you should have it properly inspected before the final purchase by an experienced and impartial professional home inspector.

John from JW Home Inspections has done four inspections for me. He is always friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. But, most importantly, he has rock-solid integrity. I trust him entirely.

As a Realtor, I recommend my clients to JW Home Inspections. Although my clients may choose to work with whomever they wish, I have never had anything but raving reviews on this company. It's extremely important to me that my clients have a thorough and accurate inspection, along with someone to walk them through the home and inform them of any issues. My clients trust me, and I trust JW! Any time I have a question on the inspection, the inspector is always willing to answer my questions quickly so that I can make educated recommendations to my clients. The inspectors, and the office staff, are true professionals - I plan to recommend them for years to come.

-Brooke Slocum

JW Home Inspection Services is outstanding! John Wade (the owner) inspected our home, and even asked his associate George to join him since it was a late inspection. They were both incredibly thorough and took the time to explain what they saw when they saw it. We are first time home buyers and they made us feel incredibly comfortable when asking questions. They even took the time to answer our additional questions after we reviewed our inspection report on the spot. John even gave us a few pointers on how to handle some of the simple fixes.

-Ally Padden

Great service from the moment I made the appointment to the moment i received the report. The inspector was James Underwood and he did a fantastic job. Not only did he cover everything in the house but he took the time to explain to me the problems that could come from any of those situations as well as how to improve or repair them. I would use them again anytime, especially James.

Your Home...

Likely The Biggest Investment You'll Make In Your Entire Life.

houseA professional home inspection is essential-- it will help you determine if you're investing all that money into your dream home or tossing it down a money pit.


Before you make your final buying or selling decision, make sure you obtain a professional home inspection. Your prospective home may look beautiful on the inside and out, have a lot of great amenities and seem incredibly well maintained. It may even be just a few years old or freshly built. But without a professional home inspector to look in the places you wouldn't think for the things you might not even realize could be wrong, you are gambling your future on a 15 to 30 year mortgage.

What Does a Home Inspection Include?

servicesA complete home inspection includes a visual examination of the house from top to bottom.

The inspector examines the heating system, the central air conditioning system (when temperature permits), the interior plumbing, and electrical systems, the roof and visible insulation, walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors, the foundations, basement and visible structure.

Then you'll get an unbiased and highly detailed home inspection report with lots of photos, descriptions of obvious and potential future issues, and the knowledge you can use to decide whether or not to proceed with the home purchase.
