Why can’t I do it myself?

Experienced homeowners still lack the experience and skills of a professional New York State certified home inspector. The House Detective Home Agency is familiar with the elements of home construction, maintenance, and home safety.

Above all, most buyers find it difficult to remain completely objective and unemotional about the house that they just fell in love with. This can hurt their judgment, so accurate information is essential. The House Detective Agency is an objective, professional third party who will issue the buyer the information needed to make an informed decision.
