Recent Review: Anchor Home Inspections is Top Notch. They answered my call right away which was huge seeing that I was in a time crunch to get a home inspection completed. They were very knowledgeable and professional upon arrival, letting me know what tasks they were going to be performing on the home. They were very Patient in answering my questions regarding the inspection. On top of everything, the report came back fast and was very clear with plenty of photos!! Anchor's professional background in construction and experience in the local area gives them the expertise that many inspectors lack. I will definitely use their services again with all my customers!!

Recent Review: Our inspector (Paul) was extremely detailed and thorough. He examined every part of the house we are purchasing. He was very friendly and answered any questions we had. He was very quick to send our report to us the same day. He took many photos and provided them to us to examine and review in the completed report. It gives us a tremendous peace of mind to have so many things inspected that we would never have thought about. Paul even checked all the appliances to make sure they were in correct working order by running them through their cycles. I feel that this was such a wonderful investment. We opted for the wind mitigation inspection as well, since we are in central Florida. Thank you so allowing me to review such an awesome company.
Recent Review: David was professional and extremely knowledgeable. Also extremely thorough, and found items that the seller had insured us was fixed. The day our inspection was scheduled we had one of the heaviest rain storms in recent history. David didn't reschedule and perform the inspection (which included crawling into the crawl space under the house) as scheduled which gave us the option of closing early. 100% would use him again for all my inspection needs.
Recent Review: Called Young Home Inspections and was greeted by Kristy who was super friendly and knowledgeable and had me scheduled for a home inspection within two days. Brandon was my inspector and he was extremely friendly and personable. Throughout the entire inspection he provided me with great information and details about my report and my home. Overall the process was quick and easy and I'm glad that I chose this company. Will be scheduling them again for family members in the near future. Thank you guys!
Michael and Jennifer have got to be the most professional and best home inspectors in town. I brought my general contractor father and architect uncle with me to the inspection for backup and both of them came away extremely impressed with their knowledge and thoroughness. Both took business cards to recommend Bay Home to friends. Michael and Jennifer checked every visible inch of the property including every inch of a very tight crawl space. Less than 5 hours later we received a fully digital report including numerous photographs. Bottom line is that these people are honest top notch professionals.

Michael Bender was extremely patient with the many time/date changes that accompanied this home inspection. We were working with a less than user friendly Listing Agent and they would not allow us to do the inspection when we had initially scheduled it. Once we settled on a time frame Mr. Bender squeezed us in as he understood our small window of access to the house. His communication both by email and via phone were always in a timely manner. The inspection report was very thorough and objective. Everything was spelled out so it could be easily understood. Pictures were provided to further explain the write up. We have purchased a half dozen homes in the last 20 years. This is the most comprehensive report we have ever received. The pictures were priceless and very much appreciated as we certainly could not access all the spaces he and his associate did. We received enough information to know the price of the house was too high for the structural work that would need to be completed eventually. We highly recommend Bay Home Inspections. We will not hesitate to call them again when we find an appropriate house in the area.

Michael and Jennifer Lynn exceeded my expectations in their service and professionalism. Both were incredibly detailed in their work while on premises and their detailed, easy to understand, written report was provided 24 hours sooner than expected. They were a pleasure to work with and I would absolutely recommend Bay Home Inspections to anyone seeking a thorough and unbiased home inspection.

Mr. Bender is a great asset when buying an older home. He is knowledgeable and extremely thorough when inspecting the property. He arrived early and spent 5 hours identifying every detail that may be of concern. My husband met him later and he walked my husband around areas of concern and answered any questions posed. My husband felt better in purchasing the home after having Mr. Bender inspected it. I also appreciate the genuine kindness and offer to answer any future questions we may have. I highly recommend Bay Home Inspections and would use them again.

We hired Bay Homes to inspect a vacation home that we wanted to buy in St. Pete Beach. We selected them to do our inspection mostly due to favorable evaluations that we read on Angies List.We were not disappointed!! Michael and Jennifer came early and had already been checking out the exterior of the house when we arrived. The house was built in the 1920?s and this type of home Is a speciality of Michael?s. By the time they were finished inspecting we knew a lot more about potential problems in the home!! From the problems found during the inspection we were able to negotiate some repayment for repairs. We were provided with an online link to the report. That was nice to have as we could share it with whomever we wanted as well as easily print hard copies as needed. Initially there were some missing photos in the report due to malfunction of one of the cameras used during inspection. Fortunatley this was corrected almost immediately! We had a complete report without them, but it was nice that Michael worked to get those photos included. The inspection revealed live termite activity, although no actual insects were observed. This was even though the sellers had a contract with Terminex for several years. Two different companies were called in and guess what? Bay Homes was right--there were insects present. We were glad that this was discovered in advance, otherwise we might have had an unpleasant surprise waiting for us. Now, due to a low appraisal we?re not certain that we will end up owning this home. If we end up buying something else we will definitely be in touch with Bay Homes to perform an inspection on the next home we make an offer on.

We had a house we put a bid on inspected by Mike Penley at Quality Inspections and we were pleased with his work. I wanted to make sure that there were no mold issues in the crawl space and was trying to get an estimate of cost for remediation if needed. I searched Angies List and contacted Suncoast Inspections because I thought that they were specialists in mold and did remediation work. Suncoast came out and inspected the crawl space. He was very thorough and timely about sending the report. He was knowledgable about mold but was not in the remediation business. He gave us the list of names of qualified people who do work on houses which was helpful. I would recommend Suncoast Inspections of Dunedin for home inspection.

Wow! I cannot express enough how amazing Michael was at performing our home inspection. He and his assistant spent 7 hours combing through every corner and crevice of the home, including digging through the crawl space. He is an amazing professional who obviously has a passion for what he does. He then spent a lot of time going through and explaining everything he found in the inspection to make sure that I was fully aware of his findings. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone needing a home inspection. I was a bit nervous about purchasing such an old home, but after Michael's thorough review and assessment, I feel much more comfortable about moving forward. He is a great professional, and I hope that we will have the pleasure of working with him again in the future. A+ all around!!!

Scott arrived early for our appointment, and before we entered the the 1940-built house he reviewed some key issues for older homes in the area. His work was very thorough, and he explained house systems and answered my questions as he worked. His report was complete and readable, although much of the body of the report was canned and some wording was not changed to reflect details of the house. His summary was excellent, and served well for negotiations with the seller.
