Program:

Jim Kost introduced his speaker Jason Murton who is a construction consultant with his company Accurate Inspections LLC in Dewitt MI. Jason gave a very informative talk on why home inspections are so important in the home buying process. Less than 15% of Newly constructed homes have an inspection other than the code inspections for heating, plumbing and so on. Less than 10% of the individuals performing home inspections have more than an online certificate of completion. Jason's firm is accredited through the American Society of Home Inspectors which is the largest accredited organization in the US. Michigan is on of only 9 state that does NOT require a home inspection, or that one be done by someone with professional training.
