nc: HOW TO SELL MORE HOUSES IN FAYETTEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA IN 2014 (PART 2) - 01/09/14 01:55 AM
Part one of HOW TO SELL MORE HOUSES IN 2014 talked about the need to be pro-active in selling your home instead of waiting for the Home Inspector (me) to come along and deliver the bad news that causes  everyone to get upset. I used the example of crawlspaces where often the deal killers lurk and urged sellers to either go into their crawlspaces or get someone else to do it. We’re looking for mold and the dampness that causes it. Forget the closet door that doesn’t latch, deal with that crawlspace, extend those gutter downspouts that are emptying at the … (0 comments)

nc: FALSE ASSUMPTIONS ABOUT FAYETTEVILLLE, NC HOME INSPECTIONS - 10/27/11 01:57 PM
        I have come to realize that there is a lot of misunderstanding about what a Home Inspection is.

A majority of home inspection referrals come through Real Estate agents. But really, the inspection has nothing to do with the agent.

nc: CRAWLSPACE MOISTURE IN FAYETTEVILLE AND THE SOUTHEAST - 09/20/11 02:22 AM
                                         HOME INSPECTION REPORT ON CRAWLSPACESAs a Home Inspector I see a lot of crawlspaces, but this is one place many homeowners never venture. There are many good reasons for this. Snakes, spiders, vermin, insulation, mold, dirt, pesticide, and other things live down there.

Things can happen down there that are bad for your home and since you don’t go there you may not even know about it until significant damage has been done.                  … (2 comments)
