Remember: Knowledge is power!
Ronald C. Hungarter, President of Ron Hungarter Associates, Inc. has been performing paid residential and commercial real estate inspections since the late 1970's, generally within northeastern and central Pennsylvania, USA. Both Pre-Listing and Pre-Purchase real estate inspection services are provided, along with expert witness services. (Note: Inspections have been performed in Doylestown, Erie, New Hope, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Waynesboro, West Chester and elsewhere in PA; CT; Boston, MA; Plymouth, MA; NJ; Upstate NY; NYC; etc.) Ron's Final Report is now digital, since paper has becoming obsolete. A CD or DVD is provided to our clients, containing a pdf copy of their report and all interior and exterior photographs shot in high resolution, creating a record of the property at the time of purchase. A PDF copy of the final report, complete with embedded color photographs is e-mailed to the client, realtor and anyone the client requests a copy be sent within 24 hours of the inspection, with many sent the same day. The prose written report is in simple-to-understand language, layman's language so that everyone involved understands the property's conditions being inspected. After over 37 years of service, Ron Hungarter Associates, Inc. has an "A" rating with the Better Business Bureau.
