Whether you are a real estate agent, broker, lender, appraiser, or attorney, your clients turn to you for advice and assistance during the many stages of the buying and selling process. As an experienced real estate professional, you know that no property is perfect — and that not every imperfection is a ‘deal-breaker’.
Fitzwater Property Inspection adheres to the nationally–recognized National Association of Home Inspectors (NAHI) Standards of Practice and the corresponding Code of Ethics, so you can trust us to perform a thorough, professional property inspection, conducted with fairness and objectivity, which will help your clients make the best, most informed decisions possible.
"His inspection followed our "what to expect" discussion to the letter! Afterwards, he took the time to sit with us, go over his results, and answer any questions we may have. We can't say enough good things about Pat and FPI!"

Helping Your Clients Sell
Three-fourths of all residential sales transactions include a property inspection contingency. And there isn’t a bank or finance company out there that won’t insist on a property inspection as part of their due-diligence process for funding a commercial purchase. When someone has lived or worked comfortably for many years in one location, it’s easy to grow accustomed to conditions which may appear undesirable to a potential buyer. Let Fitzwater Property Inspection help put the current condition of your client’s property in a more realistic light.
In addition, a professional inspection report can be a persuasive sales tool, particularly when combined with a disclosure form confirming that the issues documented in the report have already been corrected.
Let’s face it: neither you nor your client would want any surprises from the BUYER’s inspection report, do you?
Helping Your Clients Buy
On the other hand, you do have a responsibility to look after your client’s interests when helping them purchase a new home or place of business.
Any property being bought or sold should be inspected, regardless of its age. Even new construction may have a hidden problem that may not become apparent until much later. No place is perfect. But let’s also keep things in perspective: any new car can have a factory defect, however minor, and the same can be said for any new construction. And, as with buying a classic car, any existing home or store front is sure to have some ‘mileage’ on it.
Helping You Serve Your Clients
After all, the ultimate purpose of any property inspection is to help your client manage their risk. While no inspector can discover every unknown factor, an unbiased inspection of their future home or workplace may identify problems that would otherwise have been overlooked, and in many cases the seller may not even have been aware of.
"He took his time and found things that was not found by other inspectors. Provided a well explained report that included pictures of reported problems."
