father, mother, childWhen we talk about home inspections, Reid at The Home Detective comes to mind first…

Reid Guthrie, home inspector and owner at The Home Detective, Seattle, WashingtonAs the owner, let me start off by making you a BIG Promise. If we inspect your home or condo and you are not 100% satisfied with our inspection – you pay absolutely nothing for the inspection. After more than 20 years in the Home Inspection Business, I’ve seen many fly-by-night Home inspectors come and go. I feel sorry for the home buyers that are victimized by these unscrupulous operators. I’m so confident in our inspections that I’m willing to put my money where my mouth is. I know that buying a home is a big commitment. I’ve done it myself – twice. My guarantee is one more way to demonstrate my goal of meeting and exceeding your expectations. Also, I want to help ensure that your real estate transaction is an enjoyable experience. So at The Home Detective, I offer a simple, no-weasel-words guarantee. Follow us on your home inspection, and if for any reason you’re not satisfied with the “Quality” of the home inspection service, tell the inspector before you leave at the end of the inspection and we’ll either make it right, or you don’t pay the home inspection fee!

How Can We Guarantee an Inspection?

That’s easy – We’re more thorough. We take our time. We’re not trying to rush through your inspection to get to the next one. That often means we find defects the other guys don’t. And that can mean the seller, not you, will pay for the repairs. And because we’re more thorough, our fees tend to be a bit higher. So you can pay a higher fee and get a more thorough inspection, or you can save some money by hiring the cheap inspector, and maybe spend thousands more to fix the things the cheap inspector missed.

A cheap home inspector may be the most expensive home inspector you ever hire.

the more thorough we are, the more defects we find, and the more money you save. there are over-crowded junction boxes. junction boxes are missing cover plates. these are safety hazards. we recommend consulting an electrician before closing to correct as appropriate to ensure that the components are installed properly and the circuits are operating safely.

Mother Trusts No One Else But You…

“I just wanted to thank you for your insight and inspection on our last four properties. I appreciate the attention you paid to every aspect of the house and your thorough explanation of the details to us. The pictures and file you emailed us were very accurate and helpful to have on hand. Tony went through the file and was relieved that all his questions and concerns were met with equal scrutiny. My mother trusts no one else but you to work with our entire family. Up to date, Reid, that’s over ten homes in the last seven years! We will continue to refer everyone we know to you. We know that you will have their investments be your first priority.”

His Inspections are Thorough…

“Reid has inspected two homes that I’ve purchased, and I will use him again the next time I buy a home. I’ve been a realtor for over 10 years and have dealt with a lot of home inspectors in that time. Whenever possible, I recommend Reid Guthrie at The Home Detective. He is a calming influence on what can be a high anxiety time. His inspections are thorough and he presents the information in a manner that informs the buyers without alarming them. When buyers have questions, he is patient in addressing their concerns, and answers the questions in easy to understand terms.”

Michell Jewell, Medina, WA
