Here are a few of the most commonly asked questions:
1. Should I attend the inspection?
It is completely up to the you whether you attend or not. However, you will undoubtedly get more from your home inspection experience if you are present to see first hand the items and suggestions that are included in the report.
2. When do I pay for my inspection?
Before we release the report we must have payment for the inspection service. The inspector can collect your payment at the inspection in the form of cash, check, or any major credit card. If preferred, or you're unable to attend, you may provide credit card information upon scheduling the inspection.
3. How long does the inspection take?
Generally the inspection process takes between an hour and a half and two hours, but can go longer. Characteristics such as size and age of a home will determine the length of time needed.

- Chris Ranallo, Realtor, Chris Ranallo Real Estate Team
I was very pleased with the inspection process of my home. Andrew was flexible with scheduling and also extremely professional and thorough. During the inspection, Andrew quickly displayed his knowledge of all aspects of the home; including minor and major concerns. He even took the time to explain some simple repairs that I could do once I was in my new home. I really appreciated the thoroughness and time that Andrew took to provide those details. He even returned to the house a 2nd time to inspect an area of the house that was not exposed the first time he was there. That was going above and beyond and in today's world, those work principals are priceless!
- Angie, Home Buyer
We were very impressed with how smoothly the whole process was from scheduling to the inspection. He had our report to us within 2 hours of our inspection. Would definitely use Andrew again if we move.
- Ben, Home Buyer
As a first time home owner I had no idea what to expect. I was very pleased with the way Andrew explained in plain terms what he was seeing and what his recommendations were. He helped calm my nerves and put me at ease. This was a very good experience!
- Kristi, Home Buyer
My wife and I have moved 3 times in the last 8 yrs. This last inspection was the first time using Bode Home Inspections. With me being in Med school and my wife in law enforcement, we are both pretty particular about things. We were very impressed by Andrew's attention to detail and the time taken to explore every corner of the home. This was our best inspection by far!
- Rob and Jen, Home Buyers
Ben was very helpful and informative. He explained everything he was doing throughout the entire process. I definitely feel confident about purchasing my new home! Thanks Ben!
Andrew was very thourough and took the time to explain everything he was noticing and gave us really helpful tips for how we could maintain things down the road. The inspection report was very detailed and summed up everything we discussed. Thanks!
