Other Testimonials:

​​​​​​​​​I chose you based on the positive feedback posted on your website, and you lived up to the hype! You were timely, informative, flexible, personable, and incredibly thorough. We were grateful that you made sure to answer any questions we had and take the time to look (or re-look) at any aspects of the home we requested. Even my picky father-in-law had no complaints - and he loved that you got out your ladder and checked out the attic! Our real estate agent was impressed by the report you sent, and we were impressed that we received it just hours after our inspection. Because of your report, not only could we confidently ask the sellers for remedies, but we also know what we will need to address ourselves as time goes on. We would recommend you to any of our friends and family, without hesitation. Thanks again!


Westerville, OH

I feel that it is easier to make better decisions having you doing the home investigations. I can't thank you enough . Twice you saved me from getting involved in a money pit, I love your service and I would recommend the service highly to anyone who is a home owner or thinking of buying a home. It is certainly detailed and shows all things a house hunter would not think to ask about or even see when looking at a house. I felt most confident having Jim Troth in charge and him knowing what to look for. I love Habitation Investigation. Thanks Jim

Jim, Thank you very much for the Home Inspection report. It will be very helpful in
getting our home up to the great condition we were hoping for.

This report is really great - especially with the pictures. We have forwarded to our builder with the focus on the items listed as potential safety hazards those listed as water damage issues.

Karen (newly built home)

Delaware OH

Thank you so much for all the information regarding the inspection. We thought the inspection was very detailed and we really appreciate that you not only listed some of the items that need attention, but that you also included information on how to handle the problem. I have already given your card to my teaching partner. She is going to be looking at houses in Powell next month. If you need a reference, Mike and I would be happy to refer you!

What happens when Habitation Investigation is hired for a home inspection?

You recieve approximately 2.5 to 3 hours of attention paid to you and the property that is being inspected (average size home). If you are a first time home buyer, then great because this allows extra time to be spent with you to make sure your questions are completely answered. This helps remove the nagging doubt and concerns of the "unknown issues" that many buyers have. If you want piece of mind in your buying decision, then call 937-205-4758 to schedule.

Thank you Jim! You're the best!

After working with a non-professional home inspector for 2 homes (we cancelled the contract on both) we were impressed with your assessment of our home. The inspection was well worth the money and the internet full report was very thorough. I have had compliments on it from numerous family members. Most of all, I enjoyed the pictures that came along with the report, if they were not taken we would have had a hard time figuring out what you were talking about. Everything was done in a timely matter and we felt we received an objective and thorough report.

Thank you for your work and we are glad we could give you business!

Hi Jim,
Thanks for such a thorough job! I appreciate you taking the time to answer some of my own mundane questions and probably disrupting your normal routine for going through the house. I am glad to have been there! I learned much... things that I NEED to be aware of as not just a homeowner, but as someone who will take the time to care for it the way it should be!!!
Have a great week.
Thanks again

Habitation Investigation was our go-to home inspectors while we were in the used house buying process. When we could not find a home we liked, we turned to looking into new builds. We had no knowledge on the process at all, but Habitation Investigation did and walked us through the process of building and inspecting a new house. Along the way, they came out multiple times during multiple steps of the building process, took pictures and wrote up a complete summary of everything they found and everything they saw as a potential hazard/problem in the long run. They were very thorough on the process each and every time and never skimped on anything. They were always available when we called and could always answer our questions along the way.
Working for us, the buyers, and not working for the housing builders, Habitation Investigation will be trustworthy to reveal all problems to you and will always be upfront on what they see or feel needs addressed during the build process. I highly recommend, for anyone looking at building a new house or if you are already in the process of building a new house, trust Habitation Investigation to inspect your house during the process.
They are knowledgeable, trustworthy and very thorough in helping you avoid any immediate or potential issues.

Inspector was courteous and thorough. He answered all my questions. The report came the same day, explaining anything that needed to be addressed.

This move has been difficult, but you have made it easier. Thank you!

-Kyleigh H.

The company owners were very quick to respond to my questions via the chat on their website. I'm a first-time home buyer who works in Homeowners insurance so I've seen claims that were a result of a pre-existing condition so I wanted to make sure I got a good inspection, I found them because of their rating and amount of reviews. The inspector was very professional, informative, and kind. He went over everything with me and didn't over or under explain thing, and even gave complimentary suggestions for potential issues. The report was thorough and easy to read. I gave 4 stars because I was pleased with the inspection process, however I am not living in the home yet. Once I can get an accurate assessment of a lived-in experience, I may update the rating to 5 stars.E

-Tim L.

Purchasing a home can be a pretty daunting process. I have used the services of HI twice in the past month for two different properties. After receiving an unbiased, VERY detailed and thorough report of the inspection of the first property I was going to purchase, I actually withdrew my offer-it would have cost too much too remedy the issues. They helped me dodge a bullet on that one. With regards to the next property, another detailed and thorough report of the inspection allayed many of my fears-I'm proceeding forward on the purchase of this property. Do yourself a favor and get these folks on your team. They will help you get a piece of mind with your next home purchase at a reasonable price. Seriously.

-Joy G.
