Hi moms,

We're in negotiations to buy an older home in Highland Park - a 1935 tudor style house. I'm looking for a great inspector that is familiar with the area and in particular older homes. We're most concerned about any structural issues with the foundation/floor support so ideally he/she would have strong expertise in this area.

If you know of anyone please provide name and contact info. Thanks!

What can I do next?

Jim Lilly did the inspection for both of the houses we have purchased, our first being a 1926 Tudor in Lakewood. He was very thorough and we really felt good about his work. He is with Better Inspections and his number is ###-###-####

I have used Richardson Inspection twice recently trying to buy a home. The first house we tried to buy had significant wood rot and I think because we has such a good inspector we saved thousands of dollars and backed out of the deal. We had a second, very positive experience with the home we actually purchased. Both homes were built around 1960. Good Luck!
