The Most Important Thing
The Oregon State Property Buyer Advisory begins with this advice, “Obtaining a professional home inspection is the single most important thing a buyer can do for their protection.” Hidden problems in the foundation, plumbing, electrical system and other critical areas can cost thousands of dollars to correct and can drastically affect the value of a home. Discovering potential problems before you buy is essential and choosing the right home inspection company is one of the most important decisions you’ll make in the home buying process.

Not All Home Inspectors Are The Same … Demand The Best!

Like any profession, skill levels vary widely between home inspectors and a bargain price buys low quality results. The best home inspectors have spent years in study and possess first-hand experience that can only be gained from personally inspecting thousands of homes. One of the largest financial decisions of your life will be based largely on the individual skill of your home inspector. With so much at stake, you want the best inspector possible, not the cheapest.

What Clients Have To Say

“I want to express my appreciation for your outstanding service in the recent purchase of our home in Bend. You saved us from potential disaster last year when your inspection uncovered a serious structural problem in the home we were about to purchase. After we moved on and purchased a new custom home, we were concerned because the contractor had been replaced before completion, and your inspection ensured that nothing “fell between the cracks.” Your reports are very comprehensive yet understandable to a layman … your quick turn-around time enabled us to meet a very aggressive closing schedule. I would recommend Pillar to Post without reservation.”
— Tom F.

“The service I received recently from your company was outstanding. Your staff was very professional, the reports you provided both in written form and via the internet were very clear, easy to read, and included pictures of all areas of concern. You have made my purchase decision much easier with a clear understanding of the work which needs to be addressed. In fact, because of the problem areas you covered in your report, I was able to negotiate another $2,500 reduction in the selling price!”

All the best to you and your staff. Sincerely,”
— Greg G.

“The inspectors were very friendly and knowledgeable. The entire experience was great.”
— Jamie and Steven G.

“Thank you so much for the great inspection you provided us. We found you to be extremely professional, personable, reliable, and easy to communicate with. The report binder that you presented us was invaluable; the arrangement of the materials was easy to understand and access; and the “little extras” you provided in it were great! The pictures in it made it easy to see what was wrong so we could easily present it to our builder. It was obvious that you took the time to be very thorough while inspecting. We feel confident that you gave us a complete assessment of our home. Thanks, too, for presenting the report to us in such a timely manner; we received it mere hours after you completed the inspection. We really appreciated this high quality of home inspection. We will happily recommend you to anyone who is buying a home.”

Best wishes,”
— Genelle & James B.

“Dear Alan, The inspection of our soon to be home, done by you and Erik, was a very feel good experience for both of us. Your not talking down to us and fielding our many questions was very much appreciated. The bound report, with all the extras, given to us at the completion of your inspection, was a welcome surprise. Thank You”
— Tom & Sandy Van D.
