My Promise to You

Having spent many years in the building industry, there is little I haven't seen before.  While I will point out any problems I find, my focus is on supporting you in your decision.  Any issue is fixable, and rarely has an issue I've found been a deal breaker. 


Once you're aware of and understand any needed repairs, you can use your knowledge in your negotiations with the seller. 

I'm here for you and I will give you the information you need to move forward with confidence.

Why Hire Me


My name is Jim Willig, and I'm the owner of Reality Check Home Inspections.


I'm licensed with the State of South Carolina, which requires home inspectors to complete rigorous training and take a national exam.


My background is as a building contractor, so I might know where the skeletons are buried.


When I have spare time, I enjoy exploring our beautiful State of South Carolina. My family also likes boating and fishing.

I belong to trade organizations ASHI and interNACHI.

Services Offered

Pre-Listing Inspection

If you're planning to sell your home, don't wait for the buyer's inspection to turn up surprises that could affect the outcome of negotiations.  By having your home inspected before it's listed, we're able to identify issues that could stall the selling process.

New Construction Inspection

New homes that are nearing the end of construction should be scheduled for a professional inspection. We'll check for safety issues or major defects that could impact the quality and livability of your new home.

11th-Month Inspection

If your new home is approaching one year since closing, most likely your warranty will be expiring.  We'll evaluate any issues that have emerged since the original home inspection.  By taking advantage of your builder's warranty for any necessary repairs, you could ultimately save yourself from pouring extra time and money into your investment.

Radon Testing

Radon is a radioactive, naturally occurring, cancer-causing gas which can only be detected with a professional radon test.  We'll make sure your home is safe for your family by testing for radon.

Mold Testing

Mold causes health issues and structural damage.  We'll test your property for mold and provide you with results from nationally accredited labs.

Asbestos Testing

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that is dangerous in high concentrations.  We use a nationally certified, bonded, and insured method for asbestos testing.
