Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions About Your Jackson Area Home Inspection


"Are you licensed and certified?"

Yes, I am a Mississippi licensed home inspector, my license is #0577, I am certified by the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI) and I am also a member of American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI).


"Are you insured with Liability and E&O Insurance?"

Yes, I am insured through the Hartford for Liability and E&O insurance.  This insurance is provided for your protection as well as the protection of Echols Home Inspections, LLC.


"How long does a Jackson Home Inspection take?"

The average home inspection whether it be in Jackson, Madison, Brandon, Clinton or Flowood takes around 2 1/2 - 3 hours but usually a little more.  This of course depends on the size of the home, what shape the home is in and time to go over my findings with you after the inspection.


"What does a home inspection cost?"

This very much depends on the house itself.  The factors are the size of the home, the age of the home, outbuildings, crawl space, etc.  Please contact Tracy Echols (inspector) at 601-942-9260 to discuss your new home and receive a quote over the phone.


"Can I be there for the home inspection?"

I certainly encourage and recommend you to attend the inspection.  Of course you do not have to stay the entire time but this is the perfect time to learn about the systems and mechanics of your new Jackson area home.  If you choose to attend;  feel free to ask any questions that you may have such as general maintenance issues, repair issues or just simply..."how does this work?"  As your Jackson Home Inspector, I treat the home inspection as an education process of your home.


"When and how will I get my report?"

You will receive your inspection report within 24 hours of the inspection (usually the same day).  I only schedule 1 inspection per day in the Jackson/Madison area.  This ensures that there will be no mistakes or confusion during the report process.  The report will be securely emailed to you and will be password protected, if you do not have internet access or an email account, the report can be printed out for your convenience.


"Can my new home fail a Home Inspection?"

No. A professional Jackson Home Inspection is basically an exam of the current condition of your prospective home.  It is not an appraisal;  an appraisal is a process in which determines market value, nor is it a municipal inspection, which verifies local code compliance. A Jackson or Madison home inspector, therefore, will not pass or fail a house, but rather describe its physical condition and indicate what may need to be repaired or replaced.


"What if a home inspection reveals problems?"

If the home inspector discovers problems, it doesn’t mean you should or shouldn’t buy the house, only that you will know in advance what to expect. This information is used to inform you of possible future repairs whether it be major or minor.
