SAFE HARBOR INSPECTIONS INC. business philosophy

All good home inspection companies have a philosophy they follow that guides their home inspection and reporting process.  

Here’s what we believe at Safe Harbor Inspections Inc.

If someone orders an inspection, they have already picked a house, negotiated a deal, and are taking the next step towards the closing table. All this has taken place before we even get involved.

The buyer wants to buy the house, and the seller wants to sell the house. We don’t want to stand in the way of the deal. Far from it. We want to help our clients make a great decision about the house by truthfully, thoroughly, and expeditiously conveying our inspection findings in a factual, balanced, and clear, non-alarmist way.

What do we do to operate within our company philosophy:


  • We have been steadily growing our business since 2004.
  • We offer same day or next day scheduling.
  • We don’t kill deals; we help our clients understand the home so they can make an informed decision.
  • We communicate in a calm and professional manner. We understand it’s not what we say, it’s how we say it.
  • We don’t give repair estimates.
  • We never say “don’t buy this house”.
  • We never disparage any piece of real estate.
  • We are very thorough, honest, and straightforward.
  • We are never alarmist, we don’t say things that scare people. We just convey the facts.
  • We are excellent with first time home buyers. 


  • As soon as the inspection order is placed, e-mails and text messages regarding the inspection go out to all applicable parties as confirmations and reminders.
  • Amazing customer service. If our clients, agents, or attorneys need something, we “jump” so we ensure we deliver what they need promptly.
  • All our inspectors are trained to perform the same inspection in the same sequence.
  • Our inspections last typically around 2 hours.
  • Immediate verbal and photographic summary (agents and sellers often included).
