The price of a Home Inspection, like many businesses, should not be the deciding factor when looking for a Home Inspector. We have heard many horror stories from past clients about their previous Home Inspector. Far too often the inspector missed something big that cost them big bucks, heartache and a lot of trouble! The one common thread: They went with the cheapest inspector! Don’t make an expensive mistake.
Best value means different things to different people. Many home inspectors pride themselves on their ability to perform a home inspection in 1 hour and schedule 4 or more inspections per inspector per day. A thorough inspection is not possible with this kind of work load. An average home will require about 3 hours to complete a thorough inspection, and more than 2 inspections per inspector per day is not likely to contribute to a thorough home inspection. At Accu-Spec Inspection Services, Inc. our ethical standards, professional standards, superior reports, report delivery, and thorough inspection procedures enables us to provide the highest quality real estate inspection service in East Tennessee.
Our best value philosophy is most accurately summarized by Mr. John Ruskin 1819-1900.
There is hardly anything in the world that someone cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and the people who consider price alone are that person’s lawful prey.
It’s unwise to pay too much, but it is also unwise to pay too little.
When you pay too much, you lose a little money, that is all.
When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything because the thing you bought is incapable of doing the thing you bought it to do.
The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot!
It can’t be done.
If you deal with the lowest bidder it is well to add something for the risk you run.
And if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better!
