Podcast #1 Topic: Home Inspections

Home Inspection podcastHome Inspections

Recently I had the opportunity to sit down with Ohio Home Inspector Todd Engle of Good Eye Inspections and chat with him about the home inspection process.  Todd has over 14 years of experience in the real estate industry and obtained his InterNACHI certification to show his commitment to the home inspection field.  During my podcast conversation with Todd we discussed a variety of topics including pre-sale home inspections, common problems uncovered during inspection, ways to prepare for a home inspection, new construction inspection and more.  I hope you enjoy and find the podcast informative.  Please share with those who may also find it useful.
