   Buying a home is probably one of the biggest investments most people will ever make in their lifetime. If you're buying or selling a home, one of the most important things to do, but often overlooked, is to have the home professionally inspected. Professional home inspections have become standard practice in nearly all residential and commercial real estate transactions. The knowledge gained during a home inspection provides home buyers with a better understanding of how the home functions. A better educated home buyer will be a better educated home owner. It makes sense to learn as much as you can about a new home so there are no surprises that could lead to costly repairs. A professional home inspection can identify possible unseen conditions and establish maintenance strategies for a homeowner. If you're selling a home, a home inspection can help highlight the condition of the house and maximize the asking price.  

   Gordon Inspections has been performing home inspections in southern Colorado and northern New Mexico for the past seven years. Owned and operated by Bill Gordon, this business is constantly striving to offer the best in customer service and quality of product. Bill is a certified inspector through the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) and is the 2008 president of the Southern Colorado Chapter of ASHI. This association is the most widely known and respected home inspection organization in the industry. A home inspection typically includes an observation of the roof and attic space, the foundation, basement or crawlspace areas, exterior components, heating and cooling, electrical, plumbing and interior items, to name a few. A comprehensive report is generated detailing the home's condition.

   With the increasing cost of utilities, Gordon Inspections can help identify ways to save money on your utility bill. Through a partnership with Huerfano & Las Animas Housing Resources (HLAHR), they perform certified home energy audits and ratings while HLAHR helps provide decent, affordable housing to low to moderate income households. Energy audits and ratings take a "whole house approach" to identify areas of a home that can be improved by reducing energy usage. A cost / benefit analysis can be performed to determine which items identified during the audit process will generate the greatest savings. Energy audits and ratings help make a house more affordable by reducing the amount spent on utilities. Gordon Inspections also performs commercial building inspections, radon testing and construction draw inspections. Insist on a professional home inspection.
