Southern Charm Home Inspections

Hey folks! My name is William “Will” Heath and I am the proud and humbled soul behind this wonderful company. I am the proud parent to two amazing children, proud son to a wonderful mother and father, brother in service to a host of people in the public safety world, and a dedicated brother in Christ to countless millions. Family is what we are all about!

One of the things that makes Southern Charm tick is that we feel extremely passionate about doing the right thing at all times, regardless the situation. We have heard the home inspection “horror stories” that many have experienced. My personal experience with my first home inspector is one that ended up costing me several thousands of dollars to mitigate. I never want to see anyone go through any situation like I went through. For that reason and so many others, it is my promise that my team will strive to alleviate some of the stress caused by the home buying process. We feel strongly that we have an ethical and moral obligation to do right by people. ​
My background is simple. I am a Public Safety Professional with more than thirty years in the fire service as a firefighter, company officer, fire instructor, and Emergency Medical Technician. I also have extensive knowledge and background in codes enforcement. With all of the various experiences I’ve been afforded throughout my life, as well as within my humbling and phenomenal career, I have been able to integrate a great deal of that knowledge into the home inspection profession. I am so blessed to be able to assist in bringing about a positive “home buying” outcome for everyone we work with. One of the largest reasons I chose to form Southern Charm Home Inspections, Inc. is so we can help in making peoples’ dreams come true.

​I am an ardent believer in and supporter of our Lord God, our country, family, friends, our military, our public safety, and all of our teachers. I know no strangers and strive to make everyone around me feel happy and welcome. It’s what makes my service to my clients what it is. Please ask about our discount program for any military veterans, public safety officials and teachers. Thank you for your service and let us know if we can serve you in any way.

“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.”

Providing Peace of Mind

internachi-certified-master-inspector-badge

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.
