John and Cathi Lynch Enter Year 18 with Pillar To Post Home Inspectors with the Help of their Four Sons

In April, John and Cathi Lynch celebrated their 18th year as owners of their Pillar To Post Home Inspectors location at 3917 Midlands Road Bldg. Two, Suite 200, at which they serve the entire Hampton Roads Peninsula from New Kent County, Charles City County, James City County, Cities of Hampton, Newport News and Poquoson. As veteran home inspectors, the couple reflects on how, aligned with North America's largest home inspection company, they were able to build a career that gave them more control over their life than ever they had before.

In fact, for every flaw a buyer finds in a home that would cost $1,000 to fix, you stand to lose $3,000 – $5,000 off of your asking price. In truth, the average buyer doesn't really know what it would cost to fix a given issue, yet flaws that are not made apparent to a buyer before their own inspection is performed are seen as far more egregious than those disclosed beforehand, even if you bring an issue to their attention and make known that you won’t fix it… Read More.
