About Us

Welcome to Peak Home Inspections. Throughout many years of providing this service to clients and going through extensive training to become a certified home inspector, I have gained the experience and expertise necessary to make this process as seamless as possible. Attention to detail is what we strive for. I take pride as it was my own home purchase on every inspection. By providing a comprehensive home inspection, we help you understand your home's needs and condition whether you are buying, selling, or maintaining your current home.  


We use Home Inspector Pro software, which provides an easy to understand summary along with a detailed report.  After the inspection is complete, we will walk you through the results and communicate clearly and honestly.

Servicing areas of Baxter, Bemidji, Grand Rapids, Longville, Park Rapids, Walker and all the Brainerd Lakes Area.

What Really Matters in a Home Inspection

Subscribe to our YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/internachi?sub_confirmation=1 What really matters in a home inspection? Buying a home? The process can be stressful. A home inspection is supposed to give you peace of mind, but often has the opposite effect. You will be asked to absorb a lot of information in a short time. This often includes a written report, a checklist, photographs, environmental reports, and what the inspector himself says during the inspection. All this, combined with the seller's disclosure and what you notice yourself, makes the experience even more overwhelming. What should you do? 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. However, the issues that really matter will fall into four categories: major defects. An example of this would be a structural failure; things that lead to major defects, such as a small roof-flashing leak, for example; things that may hinder your ability to finance, legally occupy, or insure the home; and safety hazards, such as an exposed, live buss bar at the electrical panel. Anything in these categories should be addressed. Often, a serious problem can be corrected inexpensively to protect both life and property (especially in categories 2 and 4). Most sellers are honest and are often surprised to learn of defects uncovered during an inspection. Realize that sellers are under no obligation to repair everything mentioned in the report. No home is perfect. Keep things in perspective. Do not kill your deal over things that do not matter. It is inappropriate to demand that a seller address deferred maintenance, conditions already listed on the seller's disclosure, or nit-picky items.
