Our careers in real estate began while attending FSU and the experiences we’ve had in nearly every avenue of the real estate industry have overwhelmingly prepared us to be able to help you.
Having been a part of hundreds of real estate transactions as the buyer or as the seller, acquiring and developing numerous real estate projects, participating in the renovation or construction of well over a thousand housing units throughout the Southeast, and having been both residential and commercial landlords for the last 13 years, we have seen and dealt with a LOT.
We try to use this experience to present our findings in a way that won’t overwhelm you but rather explain, reassure and give you guidance. We want to help you keep things in perspective. As we state in our inspection reports, the perfect home simply doesn’t exist. A home inspection is supposed to give you reassurance but often has the opposite effect. This process can be stressful. You will be asked to absorb a lot of information in a short period of time in the form of an inspection report, environmental reports, sellers disclosures etc.
While this experience may seem overwhelming, remember everything is curable and while some issues may be expensive, most aren’t. Most of your inspection is made up of maintenance recommendations, life expectancies and minor imperfections. Issues that really matter are major structural failings, things that may hinder your ability to finance, legally occupy or insure the home, or safety hazards. These are all still issues that can be resolved. Often a serious problem can be corrected inexpensively, protecting both life and property. Realize no home is perfect and most sellers are honest and are often surprised to learn of defects uncovered during an inspection. Try to keep things in perspective while remembering the sellers are under no obligation to repair everything mentioned in a report.
