Home Inspection/Expert Profile

Ask A Question


I can answer questions on technical issues related to homes and explain items you may have seen on home inspection reports. Also, I can answer questions about issues that have occurred after home inspections and give insight into what may have happened. I own B.A. King Home Inspections, LLC and am the only Certified Independent Home Inspector in my entire NC and SC service area. I do not market to realtors so I can tell it like it is, without fear of a big loss of revenue. Sellers can ask questions to gain insight for preparing a home for an inspection. Buyers can ask and learn about what to expect on older homes and even on new ones. I can answer questions about home inspection agreements and explain why they must contain certain elements. I also can answer questions about the various standards of practice used in the industry.

Experience in the area

Professional independent unbiased home inspections performed for home buyers since 2005. NC 2449 and SC 1597 license's, Home Building experience, Residential wiring experience, Residential framing experience.

A disturbing fact is that 80 percent of home buyers allow their commission based realtor to choose the home inspector.
