My initial interaction with HomeKey was when I was on the receiving end of their inspection because the buyer of my previous home used them. I thought my house was in fairly perfect order, until I saw their report which was brutally honest and correct. After we sold that home we bought a brand new home with a national builder and we reached back out to them to specifically have the inspector who tore my previous home apart to inspect our new home prior to closing. We could not be happier with the results. Even though it is a brandnew home, they found things that I never would have found as the homeowner, until it was to late. They found serious issues in the attic, issues with the garage and many minor issues. It was a fairly small price to pay in comparison to the overall cost of the new house and the piece of mind it gives moving in. The final report is very detailed with pictures, notes and recommendations. I cannot say strongly enough how much I recommend HomeKey to do your inspection if you are purchasing a new home!

One of the most professional organization we’ve ever worked with. We used them twice as we shopped for our first home. The inspections are very detailed and the inspectors are top notch […] They spent time to explain the homes systems and point out any areas of interest. Stop shopping around for inspectors, these guys dominate the market.

HomeKey leaves no stone unturned!  We spent about a half a day and got an 80 page report detailing many issues.  The real estate agent even commented that she had never seen such a thorough inspection […] You get what you pay for.

The 3-4 hours of inspection [was] an education for me since I now know where to look for potential problems. His report was detailed with pictures highlighting all the issues. His report listed all the issues found with the severity level (major/minor). Based on his findings , we managed to get credit from the seller to fix the major issues in the home.


HomeKey Inspections is simply outstanding. Starting with Jenn, she was exceptionally courteous and very prompt and proactive in making appointments and keeping things on track. The inspectors were about as thorough as it gets. This was above and beyond normal service. The report was very long and detailed, with pictures of any deficiencies. I am so glad I used HomeKey Inspections.


These guys are the best at what they do, they will tell you the ins and outs of any home, and help you make the final decision on a home your interested in. Our inspector did a phenomenal job, very friendly and personable, highly recommend!
