New baby on the way for me! Probably wont have time to update the website as much and I will need as much new business as ever. March 17, 2014 will also be 5 years in business! Much love and gratitude towards all that made it possible.
Happy holidays to all. Record year for Fair Wind Inspections! Thank you to everyone who made this year a success (Realtors, Insurance Agents, Roofers, Referral Partners, and most importantly our past clients!)
Hope we can stay as busy as the first half of the year now that it is cooler outside.
Extremely hot outside, extremely hot real estate market as well. Some homes sell within hours of being listed on the MLS. Makes booking an inspection extremely time sensitive. Call us to get inspected ASAP.
Real estate has definitely picked up this year. Fair Wind Inspections is on track for its best half ever.

Wow what a start to the year, busiest two months in a long long time. No time to update the website!

Home Inspections are starting to increase in volume. 2013 looks to be a major turnaround year for real estate. If your looking to buy don’t let it pass you by. Prices are still low with record low interest rates.
