Omaha Home Inspections By F2R, Inc.
Top 5 reasons that set us above the competition:
1. What our clients have to say speaks VOLUMES!!! There are over 130 real client reviews posted under our "Client Testimonials" page that we've found on Google, Yahoo, Angie's List, Yelp, Zillow, etc. Please check them out on the left navigation bar or go to those sites & see them yourself.
2. We are ASHI Certified & abide by ASHI's Code of Ethics 1C
It states: "Inspectors shall not directly or indirectly compensate realty agents, or other parties having a financial interest in closing or settlement of real estate transactions, for the referral of inspections or for inclusion on a list of recommended inspectors, preferred providers, or similar arrangements."
You can go to the larger local real estate company websites and the inspectors listed on their sites have paid to be there. There is no way these inspectors can pay-to-play yet still be objective and work 100% for your best interest!
3. We perform our inspections on video! 8 years ago we switched up to conducting our inspections on video and haven't looked back. On video, we've been able to document the true condition of the property in a much more thorough detail than we ever could with computer generated reports and photographs. We are the only inspection company in the US documenting our inspections this way! We document the true condition of the property both visually and audibly. To see & hear the benefits, watch some video clips taken from our inspections:
4. Heat Exchanger Experts Certified. Greg Wayman is the ONLY inspector in the Omaha Metro that is Heat Exchanger Experts Certified and actively applies those techniques to find cracks in furnace heat exchangers. In 2012, 22.7% of the furnaces we inspected either had a cracked heat exchanger or a breach between the heat exchanger and faceplate. We feel it's critical for our clients to know if there is a risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. (Note: These techniques go way beyond just using a CO detector which is what the rest of our competition does or at least should do.) At this point, we've lost count exactly how many cracked heat exchangers we've found, but Greg has personally found over 600 of them. That's a lot of families that he's prevented from being subjected to potential carbon monoxide poisoning!
