Buying a Home is an Emotional Experience

It's far too easy to become attached to a home. I'm here to provide you with an independent, professional opinion so you can make the right choice.

A home inspection is an objective visual inspection of the physical structure and systems of the home. The inspection will arm you with detailed, unbiased information.

I'll uncover building defects, necessary repairs, safety hazards, and preventative maintenance issues that could cost you a lot of money down the road. I'll also help you understand which problems are major, and which problems can be corrected inexpensively.

I highly recommend First Hand Home Inspections! David was extremely professional, thorough and detail oriented. Buying and selling a house was very stressful for me and David gave me confidence to know every detail of the property's age and condition, including the complete mechanical, plumbing and electrical systems. Having this kind of knowledge helped me get the most value out of the sale!

As a Realtor in Portland Oregon for the last 21 years I know the value of having a home inspector with a background in the construction trades. David's knowledge and experience will give you confidence that your home inspection is thorough and thoughtful.

David is a skilled professional and knows his way around the construction and maintenance of homes and commercial property. His technical knowledge in areas involving remodels, old and modern construction techniques, electrical and HVAC considerations, as well as contractor best practices have given me confidence in his abilities to oversee projects on my own property. He is honest, truthful, hardworking and kind; you won't find a better advocate for your purchase or sale.

A Home Inspection Is about More than Saving Money

Buying a new house is scary, especially for first-time home buyers. Many problems can be hidden or require a trained eye to notice.

Any one of these problems can turn a home into a money pit, or even put your family in danger. That's where I come in. A professional home inspection from First Hand Home Inspections will help put your mind at ease and make the buying process easier.
