2 Rivers Inspections is owned and operated by Jon Fager and serves the Greater Minneapolis/St. Paul area with professional home inspections. Jon is dedicated to helping homeowners understand the condition and safety of their home. He also works with buyers who are interested in making an offer on a house but want a professional, unbiased opinion of the property before making such a significant commitment and investment.
Jon has created a process for painstakingly checking and testing accessible and visible components of the home, from the interior to the exterior, the roof to the foundation, and the grounds to the garage. As a member of the American Association of Radon Scientologists & Technologists (AARST) and certified by the National Radon Proficiency Program (NRPP), he tests homes for radon and educates his clients about the dangers and how to decrease their exposure. Many homeowners don’t know that Minnesota carries higher radon levels than most states. Jon makes it his mission to help homeowners understand their level of exposure and how to protect themselves and their families.
Who needs a home inspection?
Buyers— People usually think of a home inspection when they are looking for a home to buy. They want to make sure the home is structurally sound, was built with high standards of workmanship and that all components are in good working order. They also want to avoid a serious financial mistake and all the headaches that go along with buying a property that has major problems.
Sellers— Sellers will request a home inspection to find out if their property needs repairs or changes before placing it on the market. They want to be positioned favorably when buyers compare their property to others on the market. With this pre-planning and foresight, they are likely to enjoy a much smoother transaction.
Homeowners— Attentive homeowners appreciate a thorough examination of their property. The result is peace of mind once they understand the condition of their home and how to properly maintain it. It also gives them the opportunity to plan properly for major purchases like furnaces and air conditioning, appliances, roofing and exterior work. No one likes that type of surprise!
Rental property owners and property managers— This group will need inspections as well. Being conscientious about keeping their properties in good condition and monitoring radon levels makes good business sense. Both people and property values are safeguarded, and the property inspection delivers valuable information to help avoid problems that can be detected in advance. The home inspector also looks for defects that a tenant might not have disclosed during a tenant changeout.
