Providing Peace of Mind

I love to help other people and have proven this throughout my dedicated public safety career, spanning more than thirty-two years. Just like my dedication to detail in my public safety profession, that same detail is poured into my home inspections career. I make sure that each and every home inspection ends up being more than just a report on function and defects. Each inspection and inspection report to the client is an opportunity to educate you on the property so you may better understand your home, live safely, and live comfortably.

My passion is in the details, with my home inspection process being thorough and meticulous. I provide every detail, down to visible cosmetic defects so you can feel good about your investment. I want to do everything in my power to make sure you are getting the best return on your investment possible and deliver the inspection experience you are expecting. In doing so, I treat each inspection as though I were the one selling, purchasing, or living in the very space I am inspecting. By performing each inspection in this manner, you can be assured you will be seeing the inspection through my eyes and will do so through a report that is simple and extremely easy to understand.

Our creed at Southern Home Inspections is, “Your peace of mind is what we provide.” This is what we believe and it is all we know. I welcome any and all questions from my clients so that I may know where your mind is. This affords me the opportunity to properly educate a home buyer or owner to the happenings within the home. Please Check out our “About” page on the menu above, to learn more about what makes us who we are.

“We were set up with Southern Charm (Will) through our realtor and we couldn’t be more impressed. Will took the time to explain every detail of his report, explain potential faults and recommend actions to take to keep our soon to be home in top condition. If you respect honesty and attention to detail, Ask for Will Heath.”

- Kouhai

“Will did a fantastic job with the inspection on our new home. He included photos, measurements, and explanations, as well as recommendations on what was worth the effort and what wasn’t. He also took the time to explain the reason that certain issues had occurred and how to make sure they didn’t happen again. The report was delivered the same day as the inspection, was easy to read and understand, and was very thorough (59 pages for an inspection with only 5 minor things found!). Thank you, Will and Southern Charm!”

- Chastity Rosebrock

“Mr. Heath took on my inspection late one evening, conducted the inspection the next evening, & even called me post inspection & spent 30 minutes going over what he saw with me. I’m out of state & my realtor had a showing, but I know that he did conduct the inspection based on what I already know of the property from my walk throughs. He is an honest man and when I do move or even visit, I’m going to meet with him face to face just to shake his hand and say thanks for taking care of me last minute. You won’t regret working with Mr. Heath.”

- Krysti Wingfield

“My husband and I just purchased our first home and had the pleasure of working with Will at Southern Charm Home Inspections. We were still out of state for the inspection, so it was extremely important that we had a detailed and trustworthy inspector. We’ve been in the home several months and can confirm that Will did an excellent job.”

- Megan

“My husband and I are first time homebuyers, so of course we definitely have been nervous about this whole process! Mr. Will is such an awesome human being! He taught us A LOT today during our home inspection! He was definitely very thorough, and gave us some great recommendations and tips on being homeowners. The best part was not sitting there in awkward silence as he did his job. We shared some really good laughs and talked about life! It’s really hard to come by people like him! Thank you again for being so awesome!”

- Mikaela Foss

“I had the pleasure of being assisted by Will Heath of southern charm home inspections. Being I’m a first time home owner, I couldn’t have been more pleased or comfortable doing business with both will and SCHI. Very thorough and straight to the point. Doesn’t beat around the bush and genuinely has the customers best interest at heart. Goes into the job with the mindset as if he were inspecting his own home. Very personable and humble! Sure knew how to welcome someone coming from Illinois to Jacksonville! Would recommend in a heartbeat. Absolutely no complaints.”

pre-listing-home-inspection-service

Pre-Listing Home Inspection

When considering the sale of your home, there are just as many points of stress, if not more, as when you are looking to purchase your next home. You have the stresses of both being a “seller”, as well as being that of a buyer. Why not have your home “buyer ready” by having an inspection performed prior to placing it on the market. This will provide you with any details or issues about your home that may possibly become a problem in the home selling process with a potential buyer. We come in and perform the inspection, just as we would for a buyer, and then provide you with a tool box of information so you may be able to remedy any issues that could potentially kill a deal and slow the sale of your home later.

pre-purchase-home-inspection-service

Pre-Purchase Home Inspection

When purchasing a home, you are purchasing all the good and bad things that come along with that home. Whether it’s a leaking roof or a soon-to-fail HVAC unit, you need to have some kind of idea what you may be inheriting. Though we cannot see every defect a home possesses, we can provide you with at least some sense of what you may be getting yourself into. Some believe a home inspection to be an “optional” choice when purchasing. I can assure you that if you do not have one performed, it could cost you thousands of dollars in unknown and unforeseen repair costs down the road. The seller is not required to divulge issues they know exist. So please do not forego an inspection, to only be surprised by issues that may have very well come up during this invaluable service.

Move-In Ready Inspection

For the buyer, there is no better peace of mind than showing up to a viewing and knowing that an inspection has been performed by a certified and licensed home inspector. With a move-in ready home inspection, this certifes that the inspection has been performed and that all items of concern have been addressed. A move-in ready home inspection takes place when an inspector has performed an initial inspection, reported the findings of the inspection, has been contacted for re-inspection following repairs, then is able to certify that all necessary repairs were effectively and satisfactorily handled.

11th-month-home-inspection-service

11 Month Warranty Inspection

When you purchased your newly constructed home, chances are you entered into a secondary agreement with the builder, who offered you a 1-year warranty on all systems and components of the home. It is highly suggested within the national real estate industry that new home owners have their home inspected during the eleventh month to uncover any possibly unknown issues that could be dealt with under the terms of the warranty you entered into with the builder. If any issues are located, you are then given the information necessary to compare against your warranty to find out if you would be able to have the builder perform repairs to the faulty system or defect.

new-home-inspection-service

New Home Inspection

When you purchase your newly constructed home, there will come a day, prior to closing, where you perform a “walk-through” with the builder to make for certain everything is correct to your expectations. Unfortunately, not all builder representatives are going be completely honest to what defects or issues they actually know of or see. For home buyer, this presents challenges and inconveniences should they buy the home and once they have moved in, depending of course on what defects or issues are discovered. For this reason, it is a very good idea to have even a new home inspected prior to closing so any defects or issues are addressed. Please understand that just because a home is new does not mean that it is right.

maintenance-inspection-service

Maintenance Inspection

If you have ever owned a home or even rented a property, or truly even owned anything at all, you know that in order for that “thing” to continue operating properly you have to perform maintenance to it on a regular basis. The truth is, most homeowners truly do not know what makes their home tick and therefore do not know what to do, nor when to do what needs to be done to maintain a home. Having your home inspected, at a minimum of once per year, will provide you with a wealth of knowledge to help keep your home’s systems operating in tip top shape.

As a buyer it is your right and your privilege to thoroughly investigate the condition of the home you wish to purchase. In doing so, just relax. Most of your inspection will be maintenance recommendations, life expectancies for various systems and components, and minor imperfections. These are useful to know about. The videos below will help shed more light on important things to keep in mind during the inspection process and help give you better peace of mind.
