My family and I are first-time home buyers, and Jaffar not only inspected our potential new house thoroughly but also took the time to help us understand the intricacies of home ownership. The level of care, professionalism, and integrity he displayed is unmatched.
We used Jaffar from Prudent Home Inspections for our 11 month home inspection for a newly purchased home. Jaffar has been incredible. He is relentless in trying to help us find all the major structural items with our home. Jaffar has visited our house FOUR TIMES over the course of this inspection (we are only getting charged once3 for a flat fee). Each visit was to address a minor but important detail and making sure that all the photos in his detailed report address accordingly. Jaffar clearly enjoys doing this work and puts his heart and soul into it. We are very appreciative of him!
I recommend Prudent Home Inspection because Mr. Jafar is professional in nature. I would rate him ten out of five.
Prudent prioritized our needs as a seller. The inspector came to our appointment with more background information than our real estate agent. Due to the professionalism and expertise of our inspector we comfortably walked away from what would’ve been a nightmare purchase.
I really overthought our choice for a home inspector and I am glad I did because after all our research we landed on Prudent Home Inspections. Jaffar ended up coming out a second times (without additional charge) and gave us a report that included comps to the code and trade best practices. The value of this is incalculable. Now begins the battle with our builder….
Jaffer was referred by a neighbor for our home inspection recently. We could not have asked for a better inspector. He was extremely thorough, detailed, knowledgeable and what impressed us the most was that he did not rely only on manufacturer installation guides but compared the construction to the industry standard which was not detailed in the manufacturer documents. I am sure we would have missed a number of repairs had Jaffer not been the inspector. I highly recommend his services to anyone that wants a thorough home inspection.
Jaffar is extremely knowledgeable and has gone above and beyond with his level of service advising on an issue we have been having with our home. His expert advice has been invaluable. I would not hesitate to re-employ him for a home inspection or to recommend him as a professional of the utmost integrity and expertise in his field. The best.
Second time using Jaffar and couldn’t be more satisfied. Professional, knowledgeable and always responsive. Could not conceive of using anyone else.
Jaffar is not only professional, he is extremely knowledgeable and thorough. I was nervous about a few of the issues on my inspection and he took the time to explain the issues and even showed me the legal code of a couple of the identified items and went above and beyond with everything! This review is very overdue and would definitely use him for any other home I purchase and would refer him as well. Thanks Jaffar!
Updated Review (May 2022): Jaffar saved us thousands of dollars. I had hired him to inspect the home we’re currently living in (original review below). Three years after the inspection, I emailed Jaffar to seek his opinion on our deck. I had not spoken to him since I closed on the house so I was surprised he remembered me and responded IMMEDIATELY. He offered to come to our house to provide his view. I knew the deck needed repairs when we bought the house but we were at a complete loss on what to do after several contractors gave us vastly varying repair estimates (from $10,000 to as much as $60,000). Jaffar walked us through on what was code when the house was built in 2004 compared to what is code today. He gave us assessment on the condition of the wood and much more. I offered to compensate his time and travel costs but Jaffar very kindly still considered me a client and considered his trip out to my house still part of the service he gave us during the inspection. I’m not related to Jaffar nor did I know him before the inspection in 2019, so believe me when I say that hiring him to inspect the house was the best decision I made at the time. I strongly encourage everyone to reach out to Jaffar even if you decide to waive inspection because Jaffar can help new homeowners determine what needs to be repair after closing and which ones to prioritize. Original Review (2019): My wife and I are first time homeowners — and obviously very nervous about this major investment. We were beyond impressed with Jaffar. He was deliberate and thorough, examining very corner of the home. He recommended that we accompany him on the inspection so he could point out issues. Since we’re first time homeowners, he also provided tips and advice on home maintenance.
