Our Testimonials

This company is great! They were willing to schedule a time very quickly that was convenient for me, as I was from out of town. Bo was very thorough in his inspection of my potential new home. His report included all issues he found and included photos. He also showed me and discussed these issues at the time of inspection. The written report was delivered to me the day after the inspection. Prices competitive with others in the area.


We were very pleased to have found Bo from Down Home Inspections. We live 6 hours away from the home we want to purchase and we wanted to know what we were getting ourselves into. We set up an appointment with Bo and he was prompt, very professional, and knows his stuff. He took his time and didn't miss a thing. His report came quickly with pictures and explanations and was very thorough. I feel very confident from his report that we will be prepared for whats to come. Thank you Bo.


Extremely thorough, and very helpful. Took time to answer questions and explain issues clearly. Excellent follow-up. Much appreciated!


Bo performed a very detailed and thorough inspection of the house we are buying in Gainesville. His report was easy to understand and very reasonably priced. When we found out that we also needed a wind mitigation report for our insurance company, Bo was extremely responsive and got us the report as quickly as possible. We highly recommend Bo for home inspections and will call him again if we need his services in the future.


Bo did an incredible job on the inspection of my first house. I had a lot of questions and concerns, but he settled all my worries with his answers and report. He’s very professional and honest. I’ll definitely use him again. Thanks Bo!


Bo did our home inspection on a house we are purchasing. We are first time home buyers and his inspection couldn't have been any more thorough and detailed! He did a great job and checked every nook and cranny in the house, from roof, to attic, garage, moisture, leaks, you name it, he did everything and explained it very well. The price was pretty reasonable too. Thank you!


Not all heroes wear capes! A GIANT THANK YOU to Ronald "Bo" Helton from Down Home Inspections. If you are looking for someone to inspect your home look no further. Bo was extremely responsive- he got back to me and my agent right away and was able to fit us in when I needed a home inspection ASAP due to a tight closing schedule. Furthermore, when I needed said reports fast he also delivered without compromising quality. I've used Bo twice, and I can tell you he is incredibly thorough- in fact he saved me THOUSANDS of dollars (!!!) when we discovered problems with an HVAC unit at a property- his report allowed me to break contract without loosing my escrow. His reports are detailed with lots of pictures and will strengthen your bargaining power during negotiations. As a first time home owner my knowledge of what to look out for when buying a property is limited to what I could find on the internet and books- Bo was beyond patient with me answering my many, many questions, teaching me what to look out for- and what to keep an eye on after closing. He also helped me understand the lifespan of various appliances throughout the house and helped me become less ignorant regarding the necessary upkeep to maintain a safe and efficient home. You honestly won't regret getting a home inspection with Bo- I certainly don't. Great price, fantastic service- what more can you ask for?
