5 NH Home Inspection Myths

The licensed Farmington New Hampshire home inspectors listed below provide top quality narrative (descriptive) reports with digital photos, delivered same day (as opposed to handwritten checklist reports without photos.) Photos allow clients to "see" the issues up close in hard to access areas, such as crawl spaces and attics.

NH does not have any conflict of interest laws regarding home inspectors and real estate agents (the agent recommended inspector could be the agent's spouse, brother-in-law, best friend or even another real estate agent acting as a home inspector). The inspectors listed on this web site have signed a "No Conflict Of Interest Pledge".

View real estate mogul & Shark Tank star Barbara Corcoran's interview on Good Morning America and see why she advises against using an agent referred home inspector.

Some inexperienced New Hampshire home inspectors claim years of "home building related experience", however, being a carpenter, plumber, roofer, electrician, builder, real estate agent, architect, or even an engineer for 25 years does not qualify someone to be a professional home inspector. If your criteria for selecting a home inspector is based on a low fee, especially an inspector who's brochures are found in the real estate office or is listed on the real estate agent's website, you must reavaluate your reasons for having a home inspection and you must consider whether that inspector will still be around after you move in and discover that the inspection report was incomplete or negligent or watered down.

Did the home inspector or real estate agent offer a home warranty?

Inspection Photos

Photos help show / prove item conditions to other interested parties involved in the sales transaction. It requires more time to take and edit photos, that's why few inspectors include photos with their reports.

Comments From A Few NH Home Buyers:

Dear Dennis, You have an unerring eye for detail. If there's a problem in a house, you'll find it. Recently you inspected a Nashua, NH home for me and had a concern about some boxes stacked up on a porch. You removed the boxes to discover extensive water damage on an exterior wall. Your vast experience shows in what seems to be an intuitive understanding of houses, their structures, and their systems -- their personalities if you will. Your approach is thorough, efficient, and no-nonsense. The inspection reports you have generated are well organized, clear, comprehensive and prepared the same day, there's no waiting during very crucial negotiating periods. Best of all your many digital pictures tell a thousand words! Thank you! I have more than received a good value for service. Please feel free to use me as a reference. V Tane, Nashua, NH

Ok, we just got back from our home inspection that Dennis performed. Lets start by saying if you google best home inspectors in Mass there are only 4 and Dennis's name is on that list, enough said, but I will continue. He is by far superior than any home inspector my family as ever worked with and trust me "DENNIS KNOWS HIS STUFF" not only did he find water damage under the electric meter box as well as soaked sheathing behind the vinyl siding, but he saved me and my wife a lifetime full of headaches. There were many issues he found including mold, furnace problems, water in the oil tank and a radon issue. My father jokingly said to dennis "If I ever put my home up for sale I hope the potential buyers don't hire you", YES he is that good! If there is a problem he will find it. If you need and are looking for an honest truly outstanding home inspector do not hesitate to hire dennis! he is the man for the job. Thanks dennis! best money I have ever spent.

Dear Dennis; As you recommended, I inquired with the town's building department about the finished basement in the property I was going to buy. They confirmed that it did not have a permit (as you suspected.) The following is the Building Inspector's response: "Our Map and Lot file for this property does not include any permits to convert the basement of this condo into living space. Therefore, it is an illegal conversion and may not be considered habitable living space. There are even stricter codes governing use of a space as a bedroom and therefore that also would not be permitted at this time. The present owner, or any purchaser of this property will be responsible for correcting any violations. " The director also said that whoever owns it would have to be responsible for correcting the building code violation. This also means the basement can not be counted as a living space, therefore the condo has 500 less square feet and 1 less bedroom, than what it was advertised as. If you didn't bring this issue up, I might have been involved in some potential problem of correcting the violation in the future when I sell the condo. Thank you for your help, Eun, Durham NH

Dear Dennis, Thank you very much. We gave the report a close read and acted on the things you brought to our attention. William and I are both very pleased with your work, and will enthusiastically recommend you to other home buyers. We were especially pleased that you stuck with the EPA standards for radon testing, even though both realtors seemed skeptical. We're glad you make accuracy and knowledge of safety standards a priority. I spoke with the Nashua Electrical Inspector about the circuit panel that you brought up as an issue (I thought if the seller and listing agent wouldn't listen to a home inspector, maybe they would listen to him). I showed him your picture from the inspection and described what had been done and he was appalled. He verified that it was over-crowded and unsafe and that the panel needed to be replaced. I thought I'd also let you know that other professionals we brought in agreed wholeheartedly with your assessments. Erin Leiserson, Nashua NH

Brian and I are so glad we found you. We are grateful you were able to work with us. We were very impressed with your thorough investigation of the home and we thank you for taking the time to answer everyone's questions (we know there were more than enough people following you around!) Your insight was invaluable to us and your pictures were very eye opening. It just doesn't seem right that an 8 year old home should have this much fungal growth, mold, water seepage and drainage issues. Thank you for your prompt sending of the report and for the ease in which the information is laid out. Thank you again, Brian and Jennifer, Rochester, NH

Dennis, Thank you very much for your inspection services. I'll surely recommend you to anyone who is in a position to look for a specialist. In my opinion, the benefit of having a truly independent professional is substantial. I've had friends who recommended I hire two home inspectors instead of one, others were saying "nobody is good, they all work with real estate agents" and so on. Having you perform my inspection today and reading the detailed report beat all the expectations I had. Alex, Bedford NH
