After over a year of planning I am finally going to WNC to look at investment rental properties. Am looking for a few recommendations for a home inspector. Don't want to use the one recommended by the realtor if possible. I am looking in the Asheville area south to the Hendersonville area. Not sure how far an inspector will travel so a few options are appreciated. Am also interested in a realestate attorney/CPA if anyone know a good one.
Thank very much in advance
Who were you recommended?
Asheville Home Inspections
Greg SchmitBP deleted the contact info, but he's easy to find
He did a great and thorough job, was easy to work with, and even spent extra time on his own reconnecting the seller and I at just the right moment, saving a deal that would have otherwise fallen apart. Great guy.
Hi Mike, I'm a Realtor with Keller Williams here in Asheville. You mentioned a recommendation from a Realtor. Am I assuming correctly that you mean a Realtor here in the area who is helping you find properties? I work with several local investors since I'm a member of CREIA (Carolina REIA) here in Asheville, and I'd be more than happy to help you with your search if you're not already working with another agent.
As far as inspectors go, I would recommend either Affordable Home Inspections or Gibbon Pender with The Buyer's Edge. For attorneys, I recommend either Goosman & Rose or Jason Peltz. Allen Gray is the CPA I use. His wife is a Realtor with Keller Williams, so he has ties to real estate. Good luck with your search and let me know how I can help!
I don't know about inspectors I'm a contractor so i typically do my own but as far as closing attorney's if you are willing to travel to Charlotte Dale Fussell is a great closing attorney. It's all he does and I personally know 4 investors who use him in my area.
Thanks very much for all the thoughtful replies. I have posted a few time before and am amazed how quickly people respond with helpful info. Just to clarify Mark's reply. I am looking to have an inspector in place and not have to use the one my realtor suggests. Seems like there would be an established relationship in place. And yes Mark I am working (just emailing to date) with a realtor. He is also a K.W agent. I also know a K.W. agent in my area. Very professional group. If it doesn't work out for some reason I will get hold of you
Hi mike I'd like to recommend Hugh at Smokey mountain home inspections. He did a great job on my latest rental last month! Very thorough and took extra time to help explain things well.
I also saw someone above recommend Affordable Home inspections. I used them on my personal home 3 years ago and they also did a great job. Have a great day!
