Meet Bill!

William [email protected] started building homes in Arizona in the 70s and after a short 35 year detour in the Commercial Software business, I realized I missed seeing happy people moving into homes. So I decided to open my own business (Clydes Residential Inspections) helping people do just that.

I also teach Washington Inspection law classes to Real Estate Brokers, and I also am a writer with a new book rising up the charts.

Welcome, lets have some fun and learn about inspections.

Pre-InspectionWhy as a seller would you want to Pre-Inspect your Home?

Eliminate SurprisesDeal with the results on your own time and budgetDemonstrate to buyers you are preparedHelp your broker help youEliminate stress at crunch time

Inspection LawsSo just what constitutes a VALID Inspection in Washington State?In short it is a Visual non-invasive examination that:Describes, Operates, Opens, Inspects, Evaluates, and Reports on:Structure.Exterior.Roofs.Plumbing system.Electrical system.Heating system.Air conditioning systems.Interiors.Insulation and ventilation.Fireplaces and stoves.Site Review.Attached garages or carports.

Quality InspectionsThe previous list is what is required but what should a QUALITY inspection also include. What about -Outbuildings/Sheds/Workshops, Fences, Hot tubs, Wells, AppliancesIt should be:A communicative exchange with the clients and brokers. Not 80 pages of fluff.It should be informational and non-judgmental.It should NOT be an invitation for contractual work.It should be written clearly, concisely and in terms the general public will understand.It should not be alarmist, your family will die if that furnace is not fixed.It should be prioritized progressing from very important to minor issues.It should NOT include information that the inspector is not licensed for or for items the State prohibits.

Inspection Reports

Ah the Holy grail a clean report.What form should it be?

In todays world it should be all inclusive and delivered instantaneously.Fortunately there are new electronic tools to do just that.Dont settle for anything less.
