Knowledge: Michael has learned how to convey the knowledge home buyers need to make informed decisions and why our clients should not to fall for the “AS IS” trap. Michael’s extensive experience comes into play frequently in identifying existing conditions that can result in further damages or problems, and his expertise is invaluable when attempts are made to cover up problems by unscrupulous individuals. Only an expert home inspector can stop you from buying a money pit, and once you own the house, you also own the problems.

Our Loyalty Is To You: Michael represents you and your best interests above all others Click to learn why I’m not on real estate agents “prefered” list. We work for our clients 100% of the time. Michael’s detailed inspections have helped buyers negotiate better home prices, assisted them with getting needed repairs completed by sellers prior to closing, and even prevented the purchase of homes that would have been detrimental to their financial or physical well-being. Michael will work for you, not for real estate agents or homeowners. Accurate Inspections, Inc., guarantees you will receive an unbiased and Accurate report every time.
Our Promises To Our Clients: Our attention is devoted entirely to educating our clients about the home they are in the process of purchasing. Our clients come to us primarily as referrals from past clients and from attorneys who know the value of our work. We have no loyalty to any REALTORS®, nor do we count on them to send us business. In that regard, we are in the minority. In fact, Michael is one of the few inspectors in New Jersey who has signed a “No Conflict of Interest Pledge.”
Conflict of interest? Too many inspectors rely primarily on real estate agents to send them clients, and this is most assuredly a conflict of interest. Some inspectors are so afraid of “killing a sale” and losing future referrals that they gloss over problems that could seriously damage the home buyer. We have no such fear and, in fact, would rather prevent a sale than let a home buyer become physically or financially harmed. Our commitment is to you. The lack of affiliation with any real estate company means you can trust our report to be accurate and to completely reveal hazards and defects.

Our home inspection reports tell you what is wrong, why it is wrong, what to do about it and what can happen if corrective actions are not taken.
Education: We understand the stress involved with any new home purchase and will work to ensure your understanding of the inspection process every step of the way.

What To Expect During Your Home Inspection: Most home inspections take between two and three hours. However, there is no time limit. Should the home you want to purchase prove to be more complex, Michael will take all the time it needs. In addition, he will show you, not just tell you, what is wrong and why it is wrong. He’ll then encourage you to ask questions, and he won’t rush you through them.
The Home Inspection Process: Accurate Inspections, Inc. works exclusively for you. Perhaps your attorney, friend, colleague, or a relative provided you with a referral to us. Odds are your real estate agent did not refer you to us. This helps to secure our commitment to you, our client and makes sure that there is no bias or pressure for us to overlook issues with the home. Michael will ask you what is important to you and seek for you to understand what he is finding, why it is important and what to do to cure the problem. Perhaps most important he will do his best to teach you what is likely to happen if you do nothing. During the inspection, Michael will take time to explain what he’s seeing and why it matters – and to answer your questions.
When you hire Accurate Inspections, Inc., to perform your home inspection, Michael will target the key components that many of our clients feel are most important, including the structure, roof, heating, and air conditioning systems, plumbing, and electrical system.
Michael will also ask you what is important to you and strive for you to understand what he is finding, why it is important and what to do to cure the problem. Perhaps most important, he will do his best to teach you about what is likely to happen if you do nothing. During the inspection, Michael will take time to explain what he’s seeing and why it matters – and to answer all of your questions.
Were Municipal Permits, Inspections, and Approvals Obtained? As part of our commitment to you, Michael will create a letter customized to the conditions he finds prepared for your signature to send to the municipality to obtain that vital information. Use the OPRA letter as a negative checklist enabling you to demand from the seller corrective actions if all the necessary and required Municipal Permits, Inspections, and Approvals have not been obtained.
What you can expect after the inspection: You’ll go home with a copy of Michael’s checklist, but that’s not all there is to a report. We know that you need to read and digest your report in plenty of time to decide how to proceed. You may use it to lower your purchase price, to convince the sellers to make repairs prior to closing, or to change your mind about purchasing the house. That evening Michael will use the notes he took during your inspection to write a detailed report outlining the problems he found what they mean to you, and what he believes you need to do to protect your health, safety, and/or finances. The complete report and the photos he took will be posted to a page on his website and you’ll be given the URL to access that page the same day. The next morning, a complete report will go in the mail to you and to your attorney. This customized Home Inspection Book will give you a complete picture of the condition of the house, along with photos and detailed back-up information.
A Comprehensive Home Inspection Book: It’s a fact: Sellers and their agents frequently dispute home inspectors’ findings. That’s why we provide a comprehensive Home Inspection Book. By providing you with photographs and authoritative references to substantiate our evaluations, our detailed reports give you the back-up you need to validate your request for repairs and/or price reductions. Note: While Michael will tell you what kind of expert help is required to correct a problem, he does not refer individual companies or providers. We have no connections with or loyalties to any providers, so you need never worry that we’re recommending a plumber because a friend who happens to be a plumber needs the work. We are completely committed to you.
A Pre-closing Walk-through Guide: Our reports include a detailed Pre-closing Walk-through Guide in order to help you avoid surprises after you purchase the home. This is important because conditions in the home may change between the time of the inspection and the day of closing. This is especially true when the home is occupied. Your pre-closing walk-through is your opportunity to inspect the house unfurnished for any hidden defects and/or for any conditions that might have changed since the inspection. Using our comprehensive guide and checklist, you can feel assured that with the exception of repairs that have been completed, you’re purchasing a home that is unchanged since the inspection.
