I am a home inspector in the Madison area and had the opportunity last summer to witness clients who have worked with this company and had not adhered to sound advice given to them., All in the name of trying to "save money", as buyers, they bypassed having their future house inspected through a reputable house inspection company. Inevitably, I received a call after they purchased the house and found multiple issues costing them over $10,000.00 of repairs.  I cannot agree more with being smart by putting a small amount of money up front will save you from possible headaches in the future ! It is a large investment!
