First Time Home Buyer Recommends Tri-County Home Inspections
Mike was fantastic with my recent inspection. As a first time home buyer he answered many questions and was very thorough going through everything with me. I would highly recommend Tri-County Inspections!- Katie Vipperman
At Tri-County Inspections we LOVE first-time home buyers!! Inspecting all homes is great but the real thrill comes from helping a first-time home owner to understand the ins-and-outs of home maintenance and all that goes into being a home owner. The first-time home owner inspection is typically a little longer as we discuss the process and explain things in a way our customer easily understands.
What is most important when doing a home inspection for a first-time home owner is to use language that is not alarming. We remember that excitement when we bought our own first homes - nervous, cautious, apprehensive... can we really do this? Can we afford this? Is this going to be a money pit? Are we getting in over our heads? Have we thought of everything? The home inspector just said signs of past water damage - does that mean the whole house is full of wood rot!?!?
First Time Home Buyer Inspection Specialists
Understandably, first time home buyers are quick to worry that the slightest thing on a home inspection is cause for alarm. At Tri-County Inspections we're grateful to be chosen as your home inspection company and we find it rewarding to be able to explain to the first-time home owner things like the difference between a home inspection and a home appraisal, and what happens if the house they're buying has a Federal Pacific electric panel? Our home inspectors explain every last detail in a manner that is informative and non-alarmist - being honest when there's an indication of a major repair needed, but not making every little thing on the report seem like it should be a deal-breaker. It's important for all home buyers to understand that every existing home owner has an on-going list of improvements they want to do at home - upgrades, some deferred maintenance, things they meant to get to last year but never got around to. That a home inspection report is designed to give the new home owner a list of things that aren't perfect - and no home is 100% perfect. Even new construction homes should get a thorough home inspection.

Realtors Choice of Home Inspectors
When you ask a Realtor about who they choose for a home inspector, or home inspection company, you'll quickly learn that the relationship between Realtor and Home Inspector runs deep. Realtors work hard to match a buyer with the perfect home and an abrasive home inspector can kill a deal with the wrong word choice and tone. A home buyer is already anxious about the house they just put an offer on, and every home has deferred or needed maintenance. An alarmist home inspector can scare a buyer out of buying an excellent house inadvertently by not explaining thing well or putting things in proper context. At Tri-County Home Inspections we treat each home buyer and transaction with professionalism and patience as we provide a thorough home inspection explained in common-sense terminology which is why Tri-County is the choice of home inspectors for many real estate agents. If you're a real estate agent and would like more information about the unique ways we work with Realtors and special discounts we offer, please don't hesitate to contact Mike at Tri-County Home Inspections
