Which inspections should I do?

Since home inspections are not required in many situations, buyers often wonder if it’s a place to trim expenses; they are not. While the cost of inspections can add up, they rarely rise to the level of a major repair. Common inspections include pest/termite, water, septic, chimney, radon, and then the general home inspection. When hiring a home inspector, insist on one certified by the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI). ASHI has a list of what’s covered in each phase of a general home inspection. If circumstances and personal needs call for other types of inspections, don’t hesitate. Hire the appropriate inspector to put your mind at ease and prevent unknowingly buying a home that doesn’t meet your needs.

Initially I was house hunting without using an agent. I had found a property I was interested in but wanted some details regarding location, pricing of the house and general information where the house was located. Desiree was extremely helpful and said if I had any other questions she would be happy to help me. Almost a year went buy and I found a house that I was very interested in so I called Desiree again to "pick her brain". Desiree not only remembered my name after a year or more had passed, but she also helped me with MLS iformation, and anything I wanted to know about the house I was considering. I felt if she could remember me after a year and had been so helpful in my previous searches, I wanted to show my appreciation and asked her to be my realtor. I've NEVER regretted a moment of my decision. Even now after my closing has taken place Desiree is still helping me find landscapers, handymen and even went through the house showing me how things worked (ie: codes for my keyless door entry, using gas appliances and more). At this point, Desiree is not my realtor but my friend. I think my ratings more than tells you how I feel about Desiree. The sellers wanted a fast closing because they were buying a house out of state and time was of the essence for them to meet the closing requirements on their new house. Desiree had a home inspection completed the same day I paid the due diligence fee. She negotiated the price for me to my satisfaction. I signed the due diligence papers on 8-13-18 and we closed on 8-29-18. That's a closing in 16 days! I believe it was Desiree's real estate knowledge and savy that made that happen.

You are very lucky to have her on your team. She is perfect and I could not have wished for another broker. Desiree made the whole transaction go as smoothly as possible. Desiree was extremely professional. Being out of state she took care of everything for me. I was lucky to have her and I would use her again and recommend her. Desiree Blake is the broker to have to represent you. She surpassed all my expectations and then some. I would follow her to use her again no matter where she worked.

I was using a different company and had already looked at 8 houses. Desiree Blake just happened to send the link to my daughter of the perfect house. We looked, loved the home, and signed a contract the next day and began our journey. Desiree was always one step ahead of the game in regards to the whole buyer process. She always called to update me and also took my calls after hours too. She also walked across the street to my work in the cold rain to sign paperwork. I was very pleased with her and will definitely recommend her to my friends and family.

My son and I walked into the Beverly-Hanks & Associates Realtors office around 4:00pm on Thurs, July 3. I live in California and was visiting him over the 4th of July holiday. We were fortunate enough to have Desiree Blake sitting at the front desk. From the moment we walked in, she was welcoming and responsive to our needs. Never once did we feel rushed. By 8:30pm that evening, she sent us an email with 20 listings in our price range and asked us to let her know which ones we were interested in and she would try and set up viewing appointments on Sun, July 5th, the day before I would be returning to Calif. She showed us about 6 or 7 homes that day, and the first or second one was the one we fell in love with. Unfortunately, it already had an offer and was in escrow, but Desiree said she highly advises her clients to submit a back-up offer in case the first offer falls out of escrow. So on July 7th, we submitted our back-up offer. Two weeks went by and we started considering other properties, then on July 25th we received the good news that the first offer had fallen out of escrow and the buyers had accepted our offer! Two days later, we went into escrow and had an aggressive timeline -- due diligence completed by Aug 31 and escrow close estimated to be Sept 10. With Desiree's expert recommendations for home inspection professionals and tireless work, due diligence was completed by Aug 31. Additionally, Eric Clonch of Beverly-Hanks Mortgage was able to secure the necessary financing and we were able to close escrow on our dream home by Sept 11. We couldn't be more pleased. Thank you, Desiree & Eric, and the entire Beverly-Hanks team!

She was always professional, courteous and went the extra mile! I will highly recommend her to my family and friends in the future.
