A Mike Holmes home inspection provides home sellers an advantage too! When you are selling your home, you will most likely need to get an inspection, however, getting one before your listing can put you ahead of the game. A (pre-listing) home inspection will provide sellers with an accurate third-party view on the condition of the house prior to putting your house on the market. A home inspection eliminates surprise defects and allows problems to be corrected or at least acknowledged, prior to putting your house on the market. A pre-listing home inspection offers transparency so the buyer knows exactly what they are purchasing.

Kory was a wonderful inspector. He is knowledgeable, personable, and experienced. I never felt like he was rushing to get through the inspection of my house.

He was lovely to work with and I trusted his opinions and recommendations.

Orillia, ON Franchise - Inspector Dave Lobo

I wanted to email after spending the afternoon with Dave to inspect our potential home in Orillia.   I have never seen a home inspection that was so thorough or professional.  I learned more from this home inspection than I did watching my father finish project after project during my childhood.  Dave took the time to explain all of his concerns from start to finish, taught me what is and is not acceptable about each issue and why they were or weren't a cause for concern. I wanted to go into this project with both eyes open, and after this inspection I feel like we're taking on this project with x-ray vision.

Thank you so much for doing what you do, and I will definitely recommend your business to everyone I know, as well as call for your help in the future. Again, thank you
