Jeff Frishof is always our first choice as a Home Inspector for both our buyers and sellers. We appreciate his level of expertise and professionalism. He educates our clients about the condition of the home, without alarming them, and he will frequently suggest a solution. We also appreciate his professional approach to getting the invoice and the contract to the clients, and the quick turnaround. He e-mails us the report, and provides a hard copy the next day. He is excellent!

The purchase of your new home is probably the biggest investment your family will make and its impact on you and your family can have a lasting affect. If it's your first home, the process can be confusing and at times overwhelming. With the high cost of homes in the San Francisco Bay Area, the decisions involved can seem stressful. A professional home inspection is a must whether the home is brand-new or 50-plus years old. By hiring Eagle One Services, LLC, to inspect your family's new home, we can help reduce the stress and provide you with the confidence that your decision to purchase will be a positive experience.
As a seller, the decision to have your home inspected can reduce the stress of the "what if's". What if the buyer discovered something during their inspection, how will you, the seller respond? By inspecting the home prior to the listing, any findings provide you with ample time to decide, should you have it repaired, or does it just need to be disclosed? These are questions you may discuss with your Real Estate Professional. Should you decide to have a reported condition corrected, you can not only choose which contractor, but also to what level you are willing to make the correction. In some cases, this can amount to several thousand dollars in savings to you at closing.
Whether your purchasing a studio apartment or a 10-bedroom mansion, we get great pleasure from helping all our clients and give everyone the same high priority of service. Our narrative and NON-Biased reports are prepared using the latest 3-D inspection report writer software which is second to none in providing you with details on the type of construction and systems installed. If the home is more than a few years old, we may make suggestions on improvements that can be considered to increase the value of your most prized investments.
You are encouraged to attend the inspection and bring all questions large or small. Remember that just as in school, "no question is dumb." If you're unable to attend the whole inspection, you should make every attempt to be there for the remaining last half hour so we can review our findings and discuss your options should repairs be necessary. Our job is to help you understand the whole process of home ownership and most importantly, maintenance that will be needed to avoid costly repairs from neglect. We can also provide our services to investigate if general improvements are needed. Even if you're not selling, or perhaps your home has been shaken by a moderate earthquake, you may just want to know if there is anything that needs attention. All property inspections are conducted according to the California Real Estate Inspection Association (CREIA) Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics, which are recognized by the State of California.
Questions To Ask When Choosing A Professional Inspector:
Related to home inspections, what associations does your past or current inspector belong to? Jeff is a certified member of the American Society of Home Inspections (ASHI), California Real Estate Inspections Association (CREIA). ASHI inspectors only recently became the only nationally recognized certification program of home inspectors. CREIA currently is working for the same recognition. These associations require a written test be taken at a "Proctored" site. Some associations pass their members by taking an "Online" and "Open Book" test.Additionally a minimum amount of inspections must be reveiewed by our peers and continual education is required. Understanding your home inspector and there profession is a must to obtaining the best report your money can buy!
How long have you been inspecting homes? Jeff has been inspecting since 1995 with over 4000 inspections and building consultations.
Do you provide a narrative or check list report? Eagle One Services LLC provides a narrative report but both are valid reporting methods. A narrative report will not only provide you with the problem, but the implication as well.
How quickly will I receive my report? Eagle One Services LLC provides the report by emailed PDF format within 24 hours and sends a printed copy to you as well.
How quickly can you provide an inspection? This varies with all inspectors but typical is within 7-14 days during the busy spring season.
Do you carry Errors and Omissions Insurance? Eagle One Services LLC believes to inspect without it, can be financial suicide and is covered. This is not required by state or association mandates.
In closing, the final question that most clients would ask is what are the costs. This varies with all inspection companies but should be approximately $375-$450 for a small condo and $495-$575 for a small house. Most companies charge according to the square footage, age and additional components like guest homes, pools, or extra mechanical equipment. Remember though, just like most other things that cost you, "You get what you pay for". Low cost, can mean less information or a report that is not easily read. On something as important as your home, clearity and quality of the reporting is a must! You can get a home inspection that meets the minimum standards with minimum information or for a few dollars more you can get a report that is thorough, easy to read and tells you as much about the home as possible! Your families health and safety are my utmost concern and my education and experience will provide you with what you deserve.
