One of the most common questions we are asked is ” Do you think I am paying too much for this home? ”  As  a State Licensed Home Inspector, we have a pretty good handle on the condition of the home and any defects. As a State licensed Real Estate Agent, we have a pretty good handle on current market values. We now offer the service of creating a CMA ( Comparitive Market Analysis )
Based on recent sales in the same area for a seperate fee. Whereas we are not the sellers or buyers agent, our oppinion of value is completely unbiased.  Why wait for the appraisal to come in low when you can know up front the true value and what you should be paying for the home. Many times we perform inspections for people whom are very excited about buying a particular home, they have paid many other contactors beside us for evaluations, surveys, termites etc, only to have the home not appraise out and then all that money is lost. This happens when a Real Estate Agent and Seller price the home too high above market value and in many cases the buyers agent is looking at the commision number rather than what their client should be paying or what the home is worth, In the end it becomes a big waste of time an money for the potential buyes. We have seen it over and over again, which is why we decided to do something about it and help our clients. We are certainly not any Realtors favorite, because we present factual information to the buyer and in many cases it is not positive information, but we sleep well at night knowing we have given our client our best.
