Home Inspections: Pass / Fail Myth

At Advance Building Inspections, we believe that a home or commercial property inspection should provide a clear and honest assessment of the property's condition. We strive to identify the good, the bad, and the ugly – or as we like to call it, serviceable, repairs required, or unsatisfactory.

Perhaps surprisingly, we don't "pass" or "fail" inspections. Our goal is to provide an unbiased evaluation of the property and its components, so our clients can make informed decisions. We provide a thorough report (typically 20-30 pages including hundreds of photos) of the property's condition and leave the decision-making to our clients. Our inspections are designed to empower clients with the information they need to make the best decisions for themselves.

It's important to remember that just because a property may have many unsatisfactory components, it doesn't necessarily mean it's a bad investment. It's up to the client to weigh the inspection findings against their ability to tackle the necessary repairs or renovations and determine how the property will fit into their overall financial picture.

In conclusion, a home or commercial property inspection should provide an honest and clear assessment of the property's condition, including identifying any issues that require attention. At Advance Building Inspections, we are committed to providing a comprehensive evaluation of every property we inspect, so our clients can make informed decisions about their investments.
