A professional home inspection is your best tool when it comes to making the most of your home investment. Whether you are buying or selling, an objective professional inspection will provide you with important information that you can use.

If you’re buying, you want to know that the home you’re considering is safe and sound. You want to avoid unwelcome and costly surprises. If you’re selling your home, you will need to make full disclosure of any and all deficiencies. You’ll want to know what, if any, repairs to make so you can market your home most effectively.

Whichever side of the “For Sale” sign you’re on, a quality home inspection is essential.

Jim Bach - 1st Look Home Inspections


Jim was thorough, I liked the report and I think he did very well. He friendly, professional and answered questions and explained well…

Thorough, professional and just top notch. He spent 3.5 – 4 hours on a duplex inspection and I would use him again; in fact, we did as the 1st house fell through…

I recently hired Jim Bach to complete an inspection on a home I was looking to purchase in Springville, NY. He was timely, knowledgeable, and very personable. As a first-time home buyer, I was left with peace of mind knowing every square inch of the house had been evaluated. Jim took the time to explain the process as he conducted the inspection, provided me with information regarding items that needed to be addressed, and even items that would only require maintenance over time. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a highly qualified home inspector!
