“I sold 25 homes last year and used many different home inspectors. I was fortunate enough on my last inspection to have Tim Mattingly with Know Before You Buy. The home was close to 100 years old and had it’s fair share of minor issues. I was extremely satisfied with the care he took in explaining all issues in a way to my buyer that left my client feeling happy and comfortable with the home and repairs needed.

It was a nice change from what I am used to working with. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and thoughtful inspector! Thanks Bob”


“We recently had a home inspection with Tim Mattingly and we would highly recommend him to anyone. He went over every little detail of our new construction and found many little things that we would never have seen. He was very courteous and answered all of our thousand questions as first time home buyers. We even had a couple more questions a few days after the inspection and he got back to us right away. We got the report the next day and it was very thourough and included pictures with arrows with issues he found. Thanks Bill”

“For my home inspection I used Tim Mattingly at Know Before You Buy. I was very pleased with the service that he provided. Tim was very professional, knowledgeable, and conducted my inspection very thoroughly. He explained everything to me, and showed me what to look for when it’s time to check to ensure all defects were corrected. After the inspection I had a few questions, and he answered them with no problem. If you want a great home inspection Tim at Know Before You Buy is the way to go. Thanks you for the priceless suggestion to contact general contractors victoria bc as well.”


“I had Timothy Mattingly inspect the home that I planed to buy, he was very thorough and I could not have been happier with his service. He even met me at the house on the 4th of July when I am sure most inspectors would not have made an appointment. You will not be disappointed, I would recommend him to my family or friends. Thanks Josh”


“We had Tim Mattingly do our home inspection and highly recommend him. He did our home inspection while we are currently are not in the local area due to the Army and he was very helpful and provided us with great detail to our housing inspection. Tim also went back out and did a second inspection on our behalf cause we were not able to be there locally. He took time out of his busy schedule to help us out to ensure that the house we are purchasing was a nice home and things were good to go for our family.”


“We just had Tim Mattingly do our inspection today and I’d highly recommend him to anyone needing a home inspection. He spent over 3hrs going through the whole house (large older house) with a fine tooth comb. He knows exactly what he’s talking about, and he answered every question we had! Not only is he an Inspector, but he’s also a Realtor. If you want a thourough inspection on the biggest purchase of your life call Tim!”

“Mr. Tim Mattingly did a great job with our home inspection. We highly recommend him to those needing a thorough/professional inspector!”


“I was referred by a friend to check Ely’s pavers and utilize the home inspection services of Tim Mattingly, He was early and well prepared, he was very thorough and complete down to the finest detail, he explained what he was doing and answered my questions during the inspection. I was very impressed with his services, he took his time and never rushed. He gave me a military discount as well. I would highly recommend Tim’s services!”


“I had purchased three houses previously, all with different home inspectors, so I have a good basis for comparison, and wouldn’t use anyone else for home inspection.  In addition to a thorough professional written report with pictures for documentation regarding all aspects of the house, Know Before You Buy was still there for me after the sale, when I needed clarification on some of their recommendations.”


“I love to get these types of compliments from my clients.  A home inspection will help you make a better more informed decision on your home purchase:

“Thank you very much for your home inspection.  Without your services, we would have ended up with a house that needed some very important work done to it and we would have been stuck footing the bill.  Your services were efficient and you were patient and detailed when explaining everything. Thanks for your work!”

We will definetly recommend “Know before you buy home inspection” to our friends and family.”

“Not only was the cost less expensive than most places out there, you promptly investigated the house and explained all of the problems you found. I appreciated that you answered questions I had that weren’t related to the inspection and that you followed up with articles and information related to those and other questions. The information, such as the photographs, have been very helpful as reference, especially when making lists of things I need to get done.”

Lori & Doug E.

“Hi Tim,You inspected our potential new home in J-town yesterday. My boyfriend and I were very impressed by your professionalism, courtesy, and knowledge of the inspection. We especially were impressed by the binder of information regarding the home inspection and the digital photo album. We will certainly keep your company in mind for any future referral! Thanks again!”


“Tim, I emailed them to see how they wanted to handle it. I really appreciate all you’re doing. Just so you know, I wrote my mortgage person and told her she should make referrals to you if the lender requires a home inspection.”

Justin B.

“Tim, I received the binder you left on my door step today. I just wanted to thank you again, you have been very helpful in my home buying process. My wife and I were extremely impressed with your level of thoroughness and never failed to add a personal touch to your service. You have gone far beyond what I expected in a home inspection. I will not hesitate to recommend you to my friends and family in the future, thanks!”
