Certified Professional Inspectors

You‘re not just buying a home inspection – you’re buying years of experience.

First Choice Building Inspections is committed to providing comprehensive home inspections that put the bigger picture in a clear perspective. The items in an inspection report not only influence negotiations with a seller, but they can also impact the ability to secure mortgage financing and the cost of insurance policies. A home inspection can have implications for the entire home buying process which is why we take the time to walk you through a property’s needs. We’ll ensure that you know what’s required in order to qualify for the best insurance coverage and that you’re aware of any issues that could present difficulties with a lender.

There is a strong need in any real estate market for an inspection company that understands not only how to perform a great home inspection, but also how items notated in the inspection report can impact other facets of a successful real estate transaction. Company founders Daniel and Ryan have extensive backgrounds in mortgage loan origination and property and casualty insurance. Together they have been involved in over a billion dollars of real estate transactions. We put this knowledge to use to give home buyers confidence in their home purchase, and comfort in their dream homes.
