About Us
In the last year or so, the real estate business has experienced an explosion, not only in Real Estate Agents but Home Inspectors.
 We would like to make you aware of reasons you should choose House Snoops for your Inspection Needs.


Who is "Jim Whiteside"?

Jim Whiteside (arguably, one of
the best Home Inspectors in the
Area).  Mr. Whiteside has garnered
over 25 years of experience in
construction and inspection trades.


Professionalism
House Snoops is a locally-owned company dedicated to providing high quality inspection
services to home buyers.  House Snoops has no ties with any other business and does not sell real estate  and does not perform any repair work.  You get a completely honest and objective opinion about the condition of the house.

Personal Attention
I treat the inspection as an educational process.  I encourage you to attend the inspection so
you have the best understanding of the house.  Your questions are welcome at any time during or
after the inspection.  I own the company, and I do all the inspections.  I'm the one that will go into crawlspaces, and walk on the roof, (if accessible), crawl in the attic.  This is my full-time profession and I can guarantee that I will provide you with the best possible inspection and report, because my name goes on it.

You'll know exactly what needs to be fixed .

You'll understand your new home. House Snoops inspections are educational.  If you're there, we walk you around the home and explain everything.  You'll have a chance to ask any question you wish.
