A perfect day for a perfect home inspection

Real Estate Agent with Thompson Company, REALTORS® MD594797

Although Mother Nature can't make up her mind whether she should bless us with a mild winter or have our heat pumps work overtime (welcome to Maryland!), and the high today was only 24 degrees, it was the most gorgeous 24 degrees! Brilliant blue skies, and not a cloud covering up the sun's smile. It was a perfect day for a perfect home inspection! 

Spoiler alert.

There is - of course - no such thing as a perfect home as far as inspections are concerned. There is always something. When these 'somethings' are minor, however, and/or considered normal wear and tear; when the house is super clean; when it is obvious that it has been well maintained and loved; when great care went into preparing it for the market and the new owner(s); when there is a manual for everything; and when the home inspector is just such a pleasure to work with... then we can call it a perfect home inspection! 

And that is just how it played out at our inspections in the Villages of Urbana today. The home is in great shape, the buyer is happy, and the inspector is one of the best in the area. Truly!

I've met, observed, and worked with a number of inspectors over the last 15 years, Chris, owner & inspector-in-chief at Case Home Inspections, LLC most definitely stands out. He's earned his spot on my (very short) referral list, and I trust his opinion fully. So when you need a great inspector, give CHI a call - 410.978.2648.

Hello Andrea - it sounds like that 24 degree Maryland weather helped make an ideal day even better for a good real estate day in Montgomery County.

When a home has been well maintained, the inspection will usually only turn up small stuff, which is usually acceptable to a reasonable buyer.

Thanks Richard.

Winter is not my favorite season, and I dislike being cold, but yesterday was just a beautiful day. Having another great inspection experience with Case Home Inspections made it even better Michael Jacobs

Thanks so much Kat Palmiotti, Chris is the best! 

Hi Joan Cox,  I've been let down by others in the past (showing up late, sloppy work, missed issues, mistakes in the report etc.) .. but never by Chris. He knows his stuff, he is curteous, knowledgeable, experienced, and detail oriented! And super nice, too! Having a great inspector in our network is just so important.

Hi Brian England! I always prepare my buyers that a good inspector will find something in every house. There's just no such thing as a clean inspection report with no things reported. But, when a house has been maintained, and loved, it shows.. and then there's no need to sweat the small stuff.

A great home inspector is so important.. right along with a fantastic loan officer and title company. It's a team effort getting to the closing table and ensuring a smooth transaction.
