Nate performed a thorough home inspection for our property. Over 3000 sq ft was no easy feat! His service was reliable and he took the time to explain our house features and his findings during the inspection. Nate was great to work with. We now have our own go-to home inspector!​

I am very pleased with Nate and the job and detail he went into. Will definitely use Nate and his company again for the next purchase. His report saved me from losing thousands on a home with a history of water issues. Thanks again, till next time.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Should Sellers Know Before a Home Inspection?

1 –

Remove your Pets

Time and time again, Right way Home Inspection Services’ inspectors are faced with barking dogs, uncooperative cats or worse when they arrive at a home inspection. Ideally, all sellers should remove their pets from the home prior to an inspection. While a caged lizard or fish tank can stay, having to negotiate a pet during an inspection can be challenging for the inspectors and discouraging for buyers. This is the buyer’s opportunity to really go through the house very carefully. If they are not able to access a room because a pet is close in it or the barking dog prevents an inspection of the backyard, it could cause issues with the sale.
During the home inspection, taking your pets out of the home is recommended.

2 –

Declutter your home

Many sellers have already removed personal items at the recommendation of their real estate agent prior to listing. However, if your home has an abundance of furniture or clutter still around, this can hinder inspectors when they access outlets, electrical panels and appliances. Clear the clutter from counters and floors to ensure access to essential areas.

What Should Buyers Know Before a Home Inspection? Issues will be found

1 –

The home WILL have problems

Even new construction homes can have things that need addressing he says. That’s the purpose of the inspection. So, don’t get tense when the inspector finds issues. It’s to be expected. And, be glad that these items, big or small, are being discovered before the house is officially yours.

2 –

Almost anything can be fixed

Whether the list of issue on the inspection is long or short with challenges major or minor, everything can be fixed. It’s just a matter of how much a buyer is willing to take on in their new home and how much the seller can reasonably address in their seven day window post-inspection. Even the most challenging issues we find - wiring problems, failing roofs, foundation issues - can be fixed. It’s just a matter of how much the seller is willing to fix and what the buyer is willing to assume responsibility for

3 –

Water is kind of a big deal

We do live in the Pacific Northwest and it’s wet. If water damage is noted in the inspection, it’s typically something to take seriously. Investigate further to discover if the damage is extensive or surface. Sometimes, a small water spot on the interior can indicate a much larger issue underneath. Be sure to consult a professional if you have any concerns about water damage after an inspection.

4 –

Home inspectors cannot predict the future

We are tasked with assessing the home as it is on the day of the inspection. We can’t tell you how long an appliance will last or if there might be a leak in the roof in the future - we aren’t fortune tellers. However, with years of expertise under my belt, Right Way Home Inspections can give buyers a lot of background information and share their knowledge about construction, home systems and more. We are happy to answer questions for buyers and encourage them to follow us throughout the inspection so we can explain things as we go. We just can’t tell them what might happen in six months or a year from now

Should I have my home inspected Annually?

1 –

Annual Home Inspections are Valuable

We always recommend that you or a professional home inspector conduct a comprehensive home inspection annually. Annual Home Inspections are important for protecting and preserving the overall value and integrity of the structure.
