    "Thank you for the great work. The newly painted room looks fantastic. Tom notices everything so that if there is a chance I might want something additional I can have them do it. I feel very comfortable with the guys, and as usual your company came through, does what I need done, and does not disappoint me."

  • Home Inspections In Cleveland Heights

    Rich Ganim, Keller Williams Real Estate guru and Cleveland Heights Patch contributor, is here to give us his take on home inspections in Cleveland Heights:

    A few months ago I sold a pretty nice home. It was built after 2000 and it has all the fixings. You know, granite counters, stainless steel appliances, large finished basement… all the bells and whistles. As we are filling out the purchase agreement we get to the spot where we decide on what inspections we want and to my surprise here is what I heard, ”Rich, it’s a young house, we don’t really need any inspections.”

    While it’s true that the house is pretty young and from the outside it doesn’t look like there is anything wrong it doesn’t mean that is always the case. My clients insisted that they didn’t need a home inspection refused to order one.

    45 days later they received the keys to their new home.

    90 days later their basement flooded and their roof started leaking.

    It turns out that if they would have gotten a home inspection the inspector would have told them that the roof was shot and that the chimney needed some work. They also would have found out that there was moisture in the walls and that it might have been caused by a leak behind the finished basement.
