I am the founder and primary inspector of North County Inspections Inc., a home inspection company serving the greater San Diego area, and parts of Orange County. As an InterNACHI Certified Professional Inspector my passion for home construction and building architecture began fairly early, as one of my first jobs was working in the home building and concrete construction field. After several years working with some of the top home inspectors in San Diego, I set out to establish North County Inspections Inc. with the goal of offering inspection services that uphold the gold standard in the home inspection industry. As a home owner myself, and currently working towards helping to design my family's next home, I believe that every aspect of a building plays an important part in making a house into a truly safe home. Purchasing a home is a huge financial commitment and can oftentimes seem like an overwhelming experience to many, therefore it is our goal to help guide our clients through the inspection process so they can proceed with greater confidence in the purchase of their home. I approach each inspection with the same purpose and careful process, no matter the age or condition of the home. When all is said and done, I ask myself; "Would I buy this home for my family to live in?". I look forward to being of service to you in this important step in your home buying process.

We hired our inspector after finding him(you guessed it...) on Yelp! He was a prior-service Marine and I was transitioning out of the Marine Corps at the time myself. I was fascinated by the process and how similar it was to my experience inspecting aviation. From then on, I was hooked! I began learning everything I could about the home inspection industry and became a Certified Home Inspector later that same year. Fast forward to 2019, Pacific Crest Home Inspections was founded.

We appreciate the opportunity to conduct this inspection for you! Please carefully read your entire Inspection Report. Call us after you have reviewed your report, so we can go over any questions you may have. Remember, when the inspection is completed and the report is delivered, we are still available to you for any questions you may have, throughout the entire closing process. Properties being inspected do not "Pass" or "Fail. - The following report is based on an inspection of the visible portion of the structure; inspection may be limited by vegetation and possessions. The inspection report is supplemental to the sellers disclosures and agent visual inspection. This report will focus on safety and function, not current code. This report identifies specific non-code, non-cosmetic concerns that the inspector feels may need further investigation or repair. For your safety and liability purposes, we recommend that licensed contractors evaluate and repair any critical concerns and defects. Note that this report is a snapshot in time. We recommend that you or your representative carry out a thorough final walk-through inspection immediately before closing to check the condition of the property, using this report as a guide.

About San Diego

Known for it's beaches, parks and warm climate, San Diego has it all. With a population of 1.4 million, San Diego is the 8th largest city in the United States. Some major attractions include beaches like Mission Beach, Pacific Beach & La Jolla, as well as Balboa Park and the San Diego Zoo.

Common Home Inspection Questions

What is Included in a Typical Home Inspection?

Most home inspectors are members of a national home inspection association or CREIA. This will determine the major systems and components they will inspect:

  • Roofing
  • Attic
  • Exterior
  • Basement
  • Heating/Cooling Systems
  • Plumbing
  • Electrical
  • Interior
  • Fireplace & Chimneys

Who Attends the Home Inspection?

In most cases we recommend the homebuyer and your real estate agent attend the inspection. This gives you the opportunity to ask questions and for your home inspector to provide context to their findings.

How Much Does a Home Inspection Cost in San Diego?

Ranges will vary from city to city but you'll want to at least budget the national average of just under $400 for a basic inspection. Keep in mind this does not include additional inspection add-ons like mold or termite inspections. These are often just as important. 

Can My House Fail the Inspection?

Homes cannot pass or fail a home inspection. A home inspection is a visual assessment of your home at a point in time. It's intent is to educate you and your agent on the condition of the home so you can be educated about your investment and negotiate in good faith with the seller.

San Diego Real Estate Market

With a very competitive 81 on the Redfin "Compete Score", San Diego is hot in some areas and not so much in others. The average sales price clocks in at 635k and $437/sq. ft. Hot homes sell around list price and can go as fast as a week on the market.

The San Diego Tribune reports that price cuts were around 25% this time last year and around 20% this year. This is one of the highest rates of price reductions in the nation. This is often a sign of a cooling market after a huge run up in prices. This results in seller's expectations being too high for what they can sell their home for.

What This Means for Home Inspections

In a market where there are lots of price reductions, this can give buyers a little more leverage (although still not a ton overall) in asking for repairs and credits post inspection. As always, look for the most important items in the home inspection report and work with your Realtor to negotiate on those.
