 About House Detectives Inc…

House Detectives, Inc. came into being in an attempt to help people buying and selling homes make the best possible decisions they can with the available information.

Having been involved in various capacities of the real estate industry since the mid 1980s, home inspections come naturally to Jay Gorder.

Over the years, he's bought and sold rental and spec real estate, managed and maintained commercial and residential rental real estate, sold real estate as an agent, and owned a 400+ unit rental management company.

Jay understands real estate construction, sales, maintenance items, and the emotions that accompany anxious buyers and sellers. Trained by the ASHI school of property inspection, Jay meets or exceeds the ASHI Standard of Practice at every inspection. As the only inspector currently at House Detectives, Inc., Jay inspects every house as if his daughters were the buyers.
