Columbus Ohio real estate

I like home inspectors with small shoulders

man working outThere's lots of criteria for picking home inspectors.  Real Living has advice for picking home inspectors, including use someone who is a member of ASHI.  On my website* I have some Columbus home inspection companies featured  and Real Living's home inspection advice on how to choose a home inspector. I also have ASHI and NAHI (professional inspection organizations) links on my website.

There's nothing on my website about size of body parts. There is no mention of shoulders large or small, six pack abs....

I like my buyers to choose a home inspector based on who will do the best job for them and the house they are buying.  I may suggest a particular company and even a particular inspector because of past experiences. 

It can be a good thing when a contract falls through. A column in In Contract Magazine (published by the Columbus Board of REALTORS® by Columbus Ohio real estate attorney and CBR (Columbus Board of REALTORS®) purchase contract guru James Zeitsman advises real estate agents: 

"Of course, the report is only as good as the person doing the inspection. The inspector needs to be qualified and experienced. Look for professional association memberships. Talk to other agents and brokers to get referrals. The best inspector is not necessarily the one that never finds a problem so all of the deals close."

Nothing about small shoulders, long ladders, x-ray vision.....

I was out to breakfast in the Polaris area Sunday when I saw a home inspector many of my clients use.  Seeing his great shoulders made me think fondly of one of his co-workers, the inspector with the small shoulders.  Read more of  "I like home inspectors with small shoulders" on

Stay tuned.... next week I'm writing "I like mortgage lenders with big feet."

EDIT December 2011 - although the link should forward to me* it is forwarding to the Real Living HER site, which offers to find you a real estate agent. My site is (no link)  I think perhaps I need to just spend a whole day and "un" link all old links even those that might now seem to link correctly.   The information on my site about home inspectors is NOT there anymore either due to updating of the sites.
