We were helping a university professor and family purchase a home on Ann Arbor’s Eastside a while back. The home was very nicely maintained, so this was a real surprise.
This home is about 60 years old and you can tell by the size and style of the chimney that it is a larger home that was very expensively built.
There are similar homes in many of the nicer Detroit Suburbs like Farmington Hills, West Bloomfield, and Birmingham.
This inspector, Richard Becker, was a great example of someone who focused totally on the buyer’s side. He didn’t care what the real estate agents said or thought. In fact, he felt home buyers should never take an inspector recommendation from a real estate agent. (That was before he met us because we only recommend buyer-focused inspectors.)
Unfortunately, Richard Becker retired, but we do have other buyer-focused inspectors!
