Purchasing Real Estate In Maine – Who Do You Want Inspecting This Potentially Major Purchase?
Congratulations! After all the looking and running around, you’ve finally settled on a property to purchase. The seller has accepted your offer and the bank financing is now under way. There’s only one problem. You’ve just contracted to purchase property costing many thousands of dollars that may have taken you an hour or two to walk through! Locating any defects now is crucial. The property does not come with a money-back guarantee or a return policy if you’re not happy. Once you own the property, it’s yours to maintain and repair, regardless of the problems.
Like the vast majority of purchasers, you were smart enough to make the purchase and sale contract contingent upon a satisfactory building inspection. With all the excitement of making a large purchase, it’s hard to look at things with an unbiased “eye”, and now you need an expert to evaluate the property and it’s true condition.
Relax. You’ve come to the right place. I will give you the peace of mind you need by providing you with the true condition of the property. I treat the purchase of real estate as serious business and my inspections are performed as if I were buying the property myself.

Avoid Price Shopping!
Low property inspection fees should be regarded with suspicion as they often identify those who are new to the business or who do a quick walk-through, an on-site report or provide a minimal report.
You are spending thousands of dollars on property – do you really want to take a chance on an inspection just to save a few dollars? Just one large defect missed could result in expensive repairs.
The best method of price shopping is to shop for quality, and that’s just what you’ll receive with Sherlock Homes Certified Home Inspections!
