Dream Home or Money Pit
Below is an actual home inspection we performed showing how bad problems can be. The home from the outside looks like a “Dream Home” but hidden out of sight in the crawl space was a major defect that was known by the sellers, was not disclosed on the “Disclosure Form” and was not told to the Realtor nor the inspector.
While the home you’re buying may look like a “Dream Home” it could be the “Money Pit”… We regularly find attics full of ...”MOLD”... Homes often require thousands of dollars in repairs that you may not know about. After closing you are responsible for any repairs. That is a big problem at any time especially right after buying a home. Protecting you from these unexpected repairs is our responsibility/job at Home Inspection by P.R.O.S. plus we teach you about your home’s strengths & weaknesses and provide you with a 5 year budget.
NO LICENSING….NOR REGULATING…of Home Inspectors by State of Michigan

Always hire a company not a “solo Inspector” working off of a cell phone who has created a job for themselves. Always hire a company who will provide you with a thorough and professional home inspection. Your home purchase is the largest purchase you make in a lifetime. It is financially devastating to find out too late that you bought a Money Pit.

FYI. Full time inspectors (400+ per year) are much more valuable because the more inspections an inspector performs, the more trained their eyes are at spotting minor & major issues. They are much more knowledgeable and informative to buyers and therefore a much better value. Part time inspectors are the reverse. An inspector can say they have been in business for 10 years but the average solo inspector will typically do less than 200 inspections per year(2 to 3 per week). Research shows that fewer than 400 per year an inspectors skills are not likely to be at the level you deserve. So, it’s important to not only know how long someone has been doing inspections but more importantly how many paid inspections they perform in a year.
With Home Inspection by P.R.O.S. you’ll know that your inspector is a full-time inspector. You can be sure that you’re working with an inspector whose skills are current and sharp. Your inspector will protect you by identifying issues in the home and making sure you’re informed.

When comparing any service always compare apples with apples especially when buying a home….below is what you will typically get.
“After our offer was accepted, the next step was a home inspection. We chose a company with a big display ad. The ad said they exceeded ASHI standards. We didn’t know what ASHI stood for, but we would later learn. Our inspector had very little practical experience. He could not answer many of our general questions. The night after our inspection, I couldn’t sleep. I realized the inspector had not even gone up into the attics. The next day I called Patti M. our Realtor. Patti informed us of the ASHI accreditation. She referred us to Home Inspection by PROS. They rearranged their schedule to accommodate us. What a relief. Our inspector was very thorough. He answered all our questions and added lots of maintenance tips. And yes, he inspected all 3 attics. There was such a difference between the two companies. It shows how important it is to know what to look for when shopping for a home inspector. A home is the largest purchase most of us ever make. It’s not worth picking an inspector at random. My husband and I have passed the word to all of our friends & family. Now they know how important it is to choose a qualified home inspector”. Charlene B. Milford, MI
