SPS Inspections Company Introduction and video

Hi there, my name is Jarrett Ferris, and this is the first video of many to come from SPS Inspections, Olympia Washingtons premier provider of home inspection services, servicing Thurston County and the surrounding South Puget Sound Areas. I will go over all of SPS Inspections service areas in a later video which will be posted later this week of 7/8/2019 – 7/14/2019. For now, I would like to introduce myself and SPS Inspections a bit further!

I began SPS Inspections as a way to provide value to the Olympia, and surrounding communities and towns. Most of my life, I have been involved with some form of volunteer or charity organization work. Helping others is one of the things that truly brings me joy in this life. To that end I have spent time serving food on Thanksgiving to the less fortunate, helped organize fundraisers to support small, local nonprofit organizations, I along with my partner Brianna have volunteered and worked with local Olympia cat rescue, shelter, and adoption center, Feline Friends of Olympia Washington for the last 3 years after losing our beloved 4-year-old cat, Tobe to a reckless driver in front of our home. But I want to do more. More for myself, for the community. And I want to help, help others, help families understand the potential safety risks of their homes. The possibility of a system in the house with a safety defect not easily seen or understood which could put your family at risk of danger in a home you own or are looking to purchase for your family. If you live within 60 miles of Olympia Washington, SPS Inspections will always be more than happy to provide you with the home inspection services you need! Whether you need a complete home inspection in Centralia Washington or looking for manufactured home foundation certification services around Renton, SPS Inspections has your inspection service needs covered!

To do this, I have built SPS Inspections from the ground up from day one with the goal of providing everyone in the surrounding community with absolutely MASSIVE value. I will accomplish this by providing the community at large with massively valuable home inspection services and support. But this is just the tip of the iceberg folks. In pursuit of this goal and the chase of a safer and happier community and social environment, SPS Inspections will Always provide all employed in a first responder position and Military with 5% off all home inspection service fees! This is not a promotion with a time limit or really any other sort of restriction; if your local law enforcement employs you, and you want to have five inspections done that year, SPS Inspections will provide you with 20% off your total inspection fees for every inspection. SPS Inspections provides this discount because we believe in our local law enforcement and will always do everything in our power to help make our community a better place for everyone to live and thrive, not just survive!


Sample Inspection Reports

What is the number two mistake homebuyers and sellers make with their inspection report?

The number two mistake I find home inspection clients making is not asking their home inspector when they have a question about the report! Just because you have built a relationship with your real estate agent does not mean they can answer your questions about something they didn’t write, and especially not a topic they never studied and trained for. When you have questions about the home inspection report and what is in it, call your home inspector and ask them any questions you may have about your inspection report before going to closing or asking for concessions.

What is the third most common mistake homebuyers and sellers make with their inspection report?

The third mistake I find people making with their home inspection report is approaching and understanding the report from a pass/fail perspective. A Home inspection report is NOT pass/fail, it is more so a spectrum or continuum which places the overall health and safety of the home somewhere along that continuum. Rather than a simple yes or no, your home inspection is more like a grade for the property based on certain standards, and subjective to the point that human error is introduced by the inspectors themselves. So depending on your goals and needs, say, for example, you are in the process of being approved for an FHA loan on the property, where that “final score” lands will help inform the mortgage agent of whether the home meets their standards for home loans. i.e. with everything included in the report, let us say the inspection showed the house had a score of 71/100; it will be up to the lender to decide if they are willing to lend on a property with that kind of rating. Some lenders might say they won’t lend under an 80/100, or only lend on scores of 70/100+. What is important to remember is that this process is vastly subjective and not totally exhaustive, and can depend greatly on both your inspector and your lenders’ moods, etc. (That’s human error)

To wrap our first introduction up, I would like to close by saying that on top of this 20% discount for local law enforcement, this deal extends to firefighters as well! If you can prove to SPS at the time of the transaction you are currently employed as a local firefighter or volunteer firefighter, SPS Inspections will always extend this 20% discount offer to you as well! And lastly, 1% of all home inspection service fees will be donated by SPS Inspections to a different local charity every quarter. And so the more inspections we can get done, the more we get to give back to the community!
