Real Customer Reviews
FORT DODGE’S BEST
Hi, my name is Don Halligan. If you are looking for an honest home inspector who only works for you – you have come to the right place. Every house has its own set of problems and safety issues no matter how old or new they are. My goal is to find those issues and report them to you so you can make informed decisions about the investment you are about to make. I’ve performed more than a thousand inspections throughout Fort Dodge and the surrounding communities. It’s a privilege working for my home-buying clients and helping you make smart decisions.
The Right Inspector, Right Away!®
Certified Professional Inspector
As a Certified Professional Inspector my standard home inspection is an evaluation of the visible interior and exterior structure, system and components. Your report will include my findings of any visible defects I discover in an easy-to-read format. I also provide my recommendations for monitoring, repair or replacement. My job isn’t finished until I have answered any of your concerns and you understand everything in the report.
Halligan Home Inspections provides Radon Testing as an additional service for your convenience. Radon comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon can be found all over the U.S. and result in a high indoor radon levels. You and your family are most likely to get your greatest exposure at home, where you spend most of your time. Be sure to add Radon Testing to your Home Inspection.
Narrative Same Day Reporting
Using state-of-the-art software your inspection reports are delivered the same day as the inspection and allow you to share your reports with anyone over the internet, create repair or request list to send to the seller or their representative, sign agreements and make an online payment using HomeGauge Software.
Every report contains photo’s and descriptions of the property condition and describes for you any defects found in a clear easy to understand format.
Home Owners Network
Your home inspection includes a One Year subscription to the “Home Owners Network”. This is a great smart phone app for all of those home related questions that you need an expect opinion on. “Ask The Experts” is available to help you on all of those home projects.
It is a simple app you use to snap a picture, type in your question and submit. You will then receive an answer from a professional in the field of your question.
This app also offers you many great deals from on-line retailers.
Halligan Home Inspections is a participating member of InterNACHI’s Buy Back Guarantee Program and Fort Dodge’s only inspector who provides at no cost to you a Buy Back Guarantee with every inspection.
The Guarantee will be honored for 90 days after closing. We’ll pay you whatever price you paid for the home.
Home Maintenance Book
InterNACHI’s “Now That You Have Had A Home Inspection” is included with your home inspection. This book Authored by Nick Gramicko is full of useful information on learning how your home works, keeping it maintained and how to save energy.
It is always encouraged that you attend the home inspection. If you are unable to attend the whole inspection at least try to make it at the end for any details that may prove helpful with your new ownership.
