Home Inspections by Accurate Inspections

What Makes Our Home Inspections Different?

Our Client (You) Are Our # 1 Priority!

I Am One Of The Few Home Inspectors In NJ Who Have Pledged:

Not to allow real estate agents to influence how our home inspection findings are conveyed to home buyers; reward or compensate anyone for referring clients; produce any marketing material designed for or aimed at agents; solicit real estate agents with the intent of obtaining inspection referrals.

  • Michael will help you stear clear of the "as is during home inspection" trap!
  • I Taught Other Home Inspectors, Therefore I Know How To Teach You:

    As an instructor at Morris County School of Technology, as a field training mentor for student home inspectors and even as an instructor for New Jersey Home Inspector Continuing Education Classes I taught other home inspectors and prospective home inspectors how to inspect a home. As your home inspector, I will teach you about your new home. I will have you looking at homes differently, touching and seeing defects firsthand so you will learn what is right, what is wrong and more importantly why it is wrong. I already know about homes, therefore I make it my job to teach you about your prospective new home. Please call us at: (973) 812-5100

    We Provide Value To Our Clients:

    Initially you might pay a little more for the inspection I perform, ultimately you are likely to save money! Often short term savings occur during negotiations with the seller. Long term savings occur since problems with the home can be remedied before additional damages are incurred. You may wish to read our Guide to Choosing the Right Home Inspector

    What Makes Us Different?

    Our very thorough, detailed, informative, helpful and knowledgeable inspector will take the time to answer all your questions and to explain everything to you until you understand it. Our inspection cost may be a little higher but the added value and peace of mind you obtain is well worth it.

    Our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee:

    Our goal is not only for 100 % of our clients to be satisfied but for 100% of our home inspection clients to refer us to additional clients and real estate attorneys. I am confident that my home inspections represent the best value to you, our client. If at the end of your home inspection you feel we did not meet our goal PLEASE tell the inspector! You will not be charged for the inspection.

    Home Inspection Cost:

    Let’s help you put the cost of a home inspection in perspective: For example, if you are buying a $ 500,000 home and the inspection fee is around $ 1000 the inspection fee is 1 / 500th of the cost of the home! The cost of a quality home inspection is a bargain!

    If the inspection turns up little wrong with the home (few of our thorough home inspections do), you’ve bought some relatively inexpensive peace of mind. If the inspection finds serious problems (many do), then the few hundred dollars you invested in a home inspection could end up saving thousands or tens of thousands of dollars. If you hired an inexperienced home inspector major problems are more likely to be missed. Having an inspector learn on your time can cost you much more than you saved initially.

    Highly Qualified Inspectors:

    Our highly qualified and experienced home inspector is an honest professional who will take the time to explain how the home functions in plain language that you can understand. When we ask (and we will many times) if you have any questions it is because I love to answer questions!

    I know for a fact that it takes a few decades to learn how to inspect a home, not a few weeks. There is a steep learning curve for new inspectors. Make sure you hire the most experienced inspector you can find !

    Why Choose Us For Your Home Inspection

    Since 1993 We Have Been Providing A Very Thorough, Detailed, Informative, Helpful And Knowledgeable Inspector Who Will Take The Time To Answer All Your Questions And To Explain Everything To Your Satisfaction.

    The “Best Home Inspector” Means Different Things To Different People.

    To the home buyer:

    • The best home inspector is most likely the home inspector who works for them and for them only. There are a select few independent home inspectors who ONLY work for clients and who put the client’s interest FIRST.
    • Some home inspectors work for clients, however, they have to be careful to only tell clients so much to avoid risking future referrals from real estate agents. The few independent home inspectors who ONLY work for clients and who put the client’s interest FIRST find it hard to get referrals from real estate agents.
    • When you are looking for a plumber or electrician, some of the first criteria one might consider are how long he has been in the industry and what kind of reviews are out there about him. Home inspectors are no different. The quality of a home inspection will ultimately mean a lot to you after making the purchase decision on a home.

    Put simply, you don’t just want any home inspector; you want the best home inspector.

    “Your Home Inspection Will Be Performed With The Same Degree Of Thoroughness, Integrity, Attention To Detail And Care As If I Were Buying The Home For Myself.” – Michael Del Greco

    To determine how to make your choice, start by speaking with colleagues, friends and family members who have recently purchased homes about their experience. If they had good experiences, follow their lead and ask to get the name of the home inspector they used. Many times, you may find their home inspection experience was not memorable, or not positive, in which case you need to do some investigating of your own.

    Realize like any other job, experience leads to better service. A home inspection is a profession where the inspector is constantly learning from his clients.

    Always feel free to ask your home inspector questions about his qualifications and experience. Any skilled inspector will be happy to provide them. At Accurate Inspections, Michael Del Greco has only been performing home inspections for over 29 years and has a continuing commitment to ongoing education. We are very proud of the consistently positive feedback are receiving from thousands of our clients.

    Unfortunately, many home inspectors do not provide quality reports that in plain English say what is wrong, why it is wrong and what to do about it. Too often home inspectors walk on egg shells, in constant fear they will write something that causes a buyer not to purchase a home ending all future referrals from an entire real estate office.

    When working with Accurate Inspections, you can feel secure that your report will be clear, concise, and well-written. Our reports list all impending issues, potential effects of these problems, and proposed repairs that can be performed. Like any good inspection service, our reports can serve as a tool to help negotiate the price of the home you are interested in purchasing.

    Those who are not careful when choosing their home inspector can often run into the problem of having an inexperienced, inept and or careless inspector. Make sure the inspector is licensed and has the references to vouch for his or her quality of work. Also, keep in mind that an inspector referred to you by your real estate agent can be trouble.

    Always keep in mind that the average home in New Jersey today sells for hundreds of thousands of dollars. The cost of a good, reliable inspector who will work for you and your interests will be a very small percentage of that number. When considering the risk involved with a low-quality inspection, don’t let a few hundred dollars make the difference. Just like any other service, quality costs a little more.

    At Accurate Inspections, Our Clients Always Come First.

    Michael was thorough and professional and identified several major issues that were not at all... evident to my untrained eye. His inspection was the impetus I needed to check on the discrepancies he noted, the most major of which were unpermitted changes to the floor plan structure resulting in instability of roofing structure. Ended up not going through with purchase, and while before I was very happy my offer was accepted, I am now ecstatic that I am not stuck with what would have been a nightmare !Will seek help again for the next house I offer on as I continue my search, and would unquestionably recommend Accurate Inspections to other prospective homebuyers.

    Marlene Den Bleyker
    Right now the buyers market is tumultuous and you feel pressure to just get a house. Not every home... owner is honest about problems with the house. Don't make a large investment without knowing what you are walking into. Protect your investment and don't waive the home inspection. I am glad that I did not.My husband and I have been under contract with two houses and if it wasn't for Michael at Accurate Inspections we would have been hit with some major repair bills on both houses. He found extreme structural issues that we would never have noticed. He saved us hundreds of thousands of dollars.Before we even went into the house, Michael sent a neighborhood report with insight into possible hazards. He arrived early and started the process right away.My husband spent 3 hours with him at each house and he performed a thorough investigation, pointing out defects and positives about the house. He left us with a binder outlining the inspection and follows up with a report you can use to report any issues to your attorney.I have used other inspectors in the past, who basically walked you through the house, but Michael provides a more substantial picture into the home you are buying. I highly recommend Accurate Inspections.read more

Our second inspection with him, which is our current home, was thorough and helpful with us getting credit for our purchase. After our inspection he was extremely helpful with any other questions that we had and was quick to call us back. We valued everything that he has done and will use him for any future purchases that we make!read more

    Michael is extremely knowledgeable and thorough. Highly recommended!!
    Regina Kim
    Michael was VERY thorough, very helpful and went out of his way to make sure things we understood... what was wrong with the house and answer any questions we had. I think the only thing I would say about any room for improvement would be the way that the report is completed, I think it's a lot of information, and the way it is organized makes it a little more difficult to understand the most important things from the lesser important. Overall would highly recommend, very experienced, and is very knowledgable.read more

    I've rented my home for 21 years and assumed I knew everything about this house. Now I'm buying... it. I'm so happy I hired Michael to do the inspection.

I'd never buy a house until I had Michael inspect it first.read more

    Justin Storie
    Accurate Inspections was recommended to me by a good friend and exceeded expectations. The whole... staff was an absolute pleasure to work with. They made the home-buying and inspection process so much easier for us. Michael was a true professional and gave a thorough, accurate inspection. Due to his findings we decided not to go forward with the purchase of the house but could not be happier, as he walked us through various major safety issues the sellers failed to disclose. His professionalism, quick response time, and attention to detail helped save us from a huge financial burden. When we decide to re-enter the market, I will be sure to go with Accurate Inspections Inc. again. I could not recommend them more.read more

    Partha Panwala
    I cannot recommend Michael highly enough.Michael doesn't care about playing nice with realtors;... he cares about YOU and making you aware of all the issues with your potential property purchase. "Detail-oriented" is an understatement: Michael inspects and tests every inch of the property and takes his time explaining what is wrong, why it is wrong, and what it should be.Michael inspected a condo unit for me. He took the time to inspect all the electrical outlets, the heat pump and condenser units, the electrical panel (took off the cover), the kitchen appliances, the attic, the roof, and much more. We spent 1.5 hours inspecting a 3br condo, and I had paper copies of Michael's hand-written notes in-hand at the end of the inspection. I had a detailed, typed report emailed to me that evening.If you need a no-nonsense, detail-oriented inspector, Michael is your guy!read more

    I am very happy to work with Michael from Accurate Inspections for several reasons.1-He came to... inspection on time.2-He explained everything to me during the inspection.3-He didn't talk with anybody on the phone or answer his phone during my home inspection. He spent all his time for my home inspection not for another person.4-He was respectful and had lots of patience with me. He explained what is wrong or what should be done to fix the problems till I complately understand the problems and the solutions.5-He sent the report at the same day of inspection.6-Few days later, he called me and asked me again If I have any questions or clarification with the Inspection report. I was impressed with his service.I believe, he is one of the best and I highly recommend Michael for your home inspection.read more

    I was lucky to pick Michael's business out of all others online. Michael is very thorough, detail... oriented and taking his time inspecting the property. When you just see the professional for first 2 minutes and you know right away he is very experienced in his field. The presence of a seller's agent through out the process did not intimidate him. I could feel I was in good hands and he is my advocate and on my side.Michael followed up with me personally after the day of inspection for any questions that I had and explained the major points to me.If you are not an expert in the field, trust me, all this staff related to houses will be a foreign language and in the process of purchasing you already have so much headache dealing with the loan, contracts and keeping up with searching the market for other properties. When it all has a due date, it is so much helpful when the inspector not just giving you his report and disappears, but is able to explain major things to you in English language and even follow up after, when you will guaranteed to have more questions, unless the house you are buying is brand new..Do not pick the inspector your agent recommends you, pick Michael, you will be happy with the results and you will have peace.read more

    I can’t say enough about how happy I am with using Accurate Inspections.from my initial call to the... conclusion,i received nothing but the utmost professional treatment and respect.When Mike arrived,on time,he treated me with respect and explained everything he was doing and the reason why.I would highly recommend Accurate for any one buying a house and can’t imagine getting better results any where else.read more

    I had the pleasure of working with Michael as my inspection officer, and I must say, it was a truly... enlightening experience. From the moment he stepped into the home, Michael made it a point to involve me in the inspection process. His expertise and willingness to explain every detail ensured that I not only felt included but also learned a great deal about the inner workings of the property. Michael's patience and thoroughness were commendable, and his friendly demeanor made the entire process enjoyable. I am grateful for his professionalism and the knowledge I gained through his guidance. Thank you, Michael, for an exceptional inspection experience!read more

    Michael from Accurate inspections was out standing, great in explaining the issues, willing to help... and was so good even my child was willing to interact with Michael during the review.Review of the home that was being inspected was on point with the issue of the home.Michael really kept his word, his only concern was us the buyer and making sure the home was reviewed and issues was explained to protect us the buyers family.Michael explained all issues to expect to his best ability, and recommend additional inspections to confirm his findings and cost to repair before buying the home.I would also say the buyer should be happy as he did not point out none-(safety, environmental and hazard ) and he only pointed out the real issues that needed to be addressed by the law so the home can be closed on and we the buy could move in safely and live in the home.Thank you Michael and Accurate inspections for your outstanding work and being concerned with us the buyer and pointing out the real key issues and advising the truth that other issue may come up over time but that's the norm of owning a house.Please note: if you are a new buyer or seller, you can trust Michael and accurate inspection team to do it right and be honest with the findings even if its not in your favor. They will really point out the truth about the home that a buyer or a seller should know about their home they are either selling or buying.read more
