We have been practicing social distancing as a precaution since mid March 2020. All the tools, clothing and equipment are sanitized prior to each home inspection. Body temperatures are taken prior to each home inspection ensuring no one has symptoms. Face masks are worn when inside the home and people are present. No one needs to be at the home inspection. If others must be at the inspection a space of 6 feet or more is maintained from all others as a precaution. All reports are sent via a PDF within 24 hours of the inspection. Each report includes more than 100 pictures with easy to read descriptions so they can be discussed over the phone.
ILLUMINATING HOME INSPECTIONS
Obtaining a professional home inspection for your potential home is one of the most important steps of the home buying process. We help you make an informed purchase decision. Almost all homes are purchased in a pre-owned condition. It is absolutely essential to know the condition of your home before you close.
YOUR HOME INSPECTION
We provide a thorough visual 400 plus point inspection taking numerous photographs illuminating the areas you need identified for peace of mind, prior to closing. We primarily focus on identifying fire, health, safety, deferred cost and maintenance items. Having a home inspected is like a physical check-up. If serious problems or symptoms are found, we may recommend further evaluation. We dedicate several hours of time to complete your illuminating home inspection, the inspection report and to answer any of your questions.

"Eric was so great to work with during the inspection of our home. He was very courteous, knowledgeable, and professional. He took the time to point out various issues and explain the causes and corrections. He addressed our questions and went above and beyond to make sure we fully understood and to put our mind at ease with any doubts we may have had. He made us feel as if he cared that our house, decision, and move in was a positive experience. Excellent customer experience with Eric." Addy Chipouras. Client / University of Arkansas / Home Buyer - Client.
"Eric is the best! He is always available and so easy to work with. Not to mention, extremely professional and well organized. I recommend him to all of my buyers and sellers who are in need of a great home inspector. Katie Dabbs. Flyer Homes.
"Eric is first off an outstanding person. Very easy to work with and personable. He walked me through my whole inspection when I met him at the property. From walking through everything in the house, to even getting up in the attic. His report with many pictures identifying everything he looked at with simple arrows provided an at ease feeling for me as a home buyer. I recommend him to anyone needing an inspection at their property!" Aaron Palmer / Pilot, Tyson Foods / Home Buyer - Client
"Eric has been the home inspector for several of my buyers and has done a fantastic job. Eric is very thorough and his reports are so easy to maneuver. Eric always has a "can-do" attitude, professional reporting, and EXTREMELY timely in making sure he gets his information back as quickly as possible." Kris Davis. VP / Holiday Island Realty
"Eric was extremely professional and very detailed with his report. His report was also one of the easiest for me, as a Realtor, and my clients to read and understand. There were a lot of pictures and his reports are not written to scare buyers like other inspectors. He explains everything to the buyers face to face and makes himself available for additional meetings and phone consultations. I highly recommend Eric as a home inspector and will continue to use and recommend his services to all my clients and fellow Realtors. I am glad we met as this is a relationship I look forward to building. Also his pricing is on par with others, so you get more for your money in my opinion. You will not be disappointed if you hire Eric to do an inspection for you as a Realtor or buyer." Ryan Hill. Principal Broker / Owner at The Virtual Realty Group.
"I own a small real estate company in Fayetteville and recently had the pleasure of working with Eric for the first time when my buyer clients hired him to inspect the home they were purchasing. That turned out to be a smart decision. Eric brings to the table a broad base of knowledge and tons of experience in the field. His inspections seem as thorough as can be and his reports are easy for buyers to understand and for agents to reference during the course of the transaction. I will be referring Eric and Illuminating Home Inspections to my future clients." Jay Downing. Principal Broker at Flyer Homes Real Estate.
"I cannot say enough about how Eric helped us with some major issues we are having with our recently built home. From the start, Eric quickly assessed our concerns through our conversation on the phone and made an appointment to inspect it at a convenient time for us. His professionalism was evident when he arrived at our home, being very respectful of our space and concerns. When Eric completed his inspection, he promised the report within 24 hours and delivered. Once we received and reviewed it, we felt empowered with knowledge of our home that previously had been hidden. I already see how this knowledge will help us protect the value of our home for many years to come. The cost for the inspection will certainly have a large return on investment for us. I realize there is even greater value in making a connection with him, as Eric continues to provide excellent recommendations for us to navigate the residential building industry practices and the challenges that come with that as a consumer. Finally, I must say that I had no idea the importance of having a third-party inspection when purchasing a newly constructed home. I have bought and sold homes previously and had home inspections completed as they were older homes. It made sense to understand the current condition of a previously owned home. But I made a critical error by not having such an inspection on this home. It would have saved us countless hours of disturbance within our home and the unbelievable mess and complications that go with work on the house while we are living in it. I now see the importance of having a brand new home inspected prior to purchasing." Larry and Tracey Cousar. New Home Owners - Clients
"There is nothing scarier to a home buyer than learning the house they picked out may have a problem. A home inspection can break a deal. The way Eric approaches a home buyer after the inspection is fantastic. His delivery of "problems" with a home is professional and not scary to anyone. His smile is reassuring to buyers and his knowledge is proficient." Cecilia Foy. Real Estate Agent at Century 21 Lyons.
"Eric and I have worked together on quite a few real estate transactions. Eric is thorough, honest and very helpful when explaining his findings with my clients. I would highly recommend Eric and Illuminating Home Inspections to real estate buyers and investors as well as real estate agents and brokers!" Matt Dickhut. Realtor at Collier & Associates
"Eric recently inspected the home of one of my clients. They were unable to be at the inspection so I was there to represent them. Eric was great to work with. He was on time, had his "extra" pair of shoes to wear in the house after inspecting the exterior of the home, and was very thorough with his inspection. My clients were very pleased with the report he provided them. I will certainly recommend Eric again to my buyers and anyone who would like a home inspection for their own peace of mind." Wendi Jones. Realtor at Prime Real Estate and Development.
"Eric provided the upmost professional services during the inspection for one of my buyers! He’s extremely thorough and explains anything and everything. We even received the report back within 24 hours!! I will be using him in the future!" Danielle Dengler. Realtor at ATHIAS Real Estate
"Great inspector and great person! Great with his clients and very detailed inspection reports. He’ll tell you how it is with houses. Very knowledgeable. Highly recommend!" Carly Garland. Realtor at Keller Williams - Trina Hammond Team
