My Services

The purchase of a house is generally the most expensive, and important purchase most people will make. Mike Chapman of Closer Look Home Inspections has been performing home inspections for more than twenty years. A home inspection in the Syracuse, NY area, and around the country, can save potential home buyers from many hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars in unknown costly repairs. Many home sellers often have a “pre-listing” home inspection performed so they are aware of what might be needed in order to facilitate a smoother transaction.

  • I wanted to extend my thanks for the fantastic job that you did for us on the home inspection at our new home in Syracuse, NY. Needless to say, we were sorry to see and read about the "facts", however, we were so impressed with your knowledge, professionalism and presentation both in person and in your report. As odd as it sounds, we spent Saturday evening reading your report and laughing because reading your report was like having you with us in the room.....comfortable, easy and informative! Again many thanks.

  • I just wanted to thank you again for the great job you did with our home inspection. Based on your inspection report, we presented the seller with a (fairly lengthy) punch list of things that needed to be addressed with the unit, starting with the HVAC. We didn't expect him to agree to everything we were asking for, but in the end he did. So, it looks like we're still likely to end up taking the place (assuming the lawyers can work everything out).
    I really appreciate not just your thoroughness, but the way you took your time to make sure we really understood everything you found, and the great detail you put into your report.
    If Joan and I need a home inspector in the future we know where to go, and we'll definitely be recommending you to friends.

Ryan F., Home Buyer, Syracuse, NY

  • Thanks so much for working with us. After you left, my client expressed how much he really enjoyed the home inspection. He complimented you on the detailed explanations in normal, everyday terms and how you truly care about the buyer and the condition of the home that he/she is buying. He said that the last inspector just ran through the place as fast as possible in order to get paid and move on to the next one. I really enjoyed working with you too. I hope that we can work together more often in the future. I will definitely be calling you for my next buyer's home inspection.

Angela, Real Estate Professional, Syracuse, NY

  • We've been embroiled in attorney negotiations and contractor estimates since we received your home inspection report, and I'm happy to report that we are satisfied that the home in Syracuse, NY will work for us at the price to which we have agreed with the seller. I wanted to send a note of thanks, now that we've cleared the inspection process. Stephanie and I were stunned by the amount of detail in your report, and having compared your findings with the reports my friends and colleagues have received for their own home purchases, it's clear you are truly operating at a highly competent and ethical level.

Debbie C., Home Buyer, Baldwinsville, NY

  • I can assure you that we will keep your contact information for future inspection needs, and pass your name along to our friends and family. Good luck in your future endeavors, and please don't hesitate to contact me if you ever need a referral.
