Meet Tom Bergami - Home Inspector

Tom Bergami - Home Inspector

Tom was born into a family-owned construction company. From the age of 6, he spent most of his summers with his family on construction sites. Many homes and businesses in the capital district were built under the Bergami name. By 1980 He started his own construction company and contracted both residential homes and commercial businesses spanning New York State from Albany to Buffalo. The building inspection industry was in its infancy when Tom began inspecting buildings for clients and investors back in 1982.

Why should I get a home inspection?

Having a pre-purchase inspection will give you a better look at your investment and alleviate any surprises that may be hiding or intentionally concealed. You'll also see what maintenance items will pop up in the years to come and may save you thousands of dollars before signing those final purchase contracts. If major issues are found, they can be negotiated for repair before the closing date.

A pre-listing inspection can help you disclose any information about the house that may be an issue or has been repaired. Full disclosure will help you set the price of the house "as is" and reduces the possibility of dickering. In other words "this is the house, this is what's wrong with it, this is how much I want." Done.
