Company History

Mr. Beekman has resided in West Bloomfield since 1982. He founded Tricor in 1993 initially as a building and inspection company serving West Bloomfield and the Tri-County area. Currently, Mr. Beekman provides professional input to the West Bloomfield Building and Planning Department to help determine inspection guidelines for their new ordinance (No. C-735) pertaining to the inspection of foreclosed properties. This is a process of re-issuing a Certificate of Occupancy from the township inspection office related to the purchase of foreclosed properties. These new requirements are becoming a standard around the region.

Pre-Listing Inspections

Eventually your buyers are going to conduct an inspection. You may as well know what they are going to find by getting there first. Having an inspection performed ahead of time helps in many other ways:

1. The seller can choose a certified InterNACHI inspector rather than be at the mercy of the buyer's choice of inspector.
2. The seller can schedule the inspections at the seller's convenience.
3. It might alert the seller of any items of immediate personal concern, such as radon gas or active termite infestation.
4. The seller can assist the inspector during the inspection, something normally not done during a buyer's inspection.
5. The seller can have the inspector correct any misstatements in the inspection report before it is generated.
6. The report can help the seller realistically price the home if problems exist.
7. The report can help the seller substantiate a higher asking price if problems don't exist or have been corrected.
8. A seller inspection reveals problems ahead of time which:
a) might make the home show better.
b) gives the seller time to make repairs and shop for competitive contractors.
c) permits the seller to attach repair estimates or paid invoices to the inspection report.
d) removes over-inflated buyer procured estimates from the negotiation table.
9. The report might alert the seller to any immediate safety issues found, before agents and visitors tour the home.
10. The report provides a third-party, unbiased opinion to offer to potential buyers.
11. A seller inspection permits a clean home inspection report to be used as a marketing tool.
12. A seller inspection is the ultimate gesture in forthrightness on the part of the seller.
13. The report might relieve a prospective buyer's unfounded suspicions, before they walk away.
14. A seller inspection lightens negotiations and 11th-hour renegotiations.
15. The report might encourage the buyer to waive the inspection contingency.
16. The deal is less likely to fall apart the way they often do when a buyer's inspection unexpectedly reveals a problem, last minute.
17. The report provides full-disclosure protection from future legal claims.

Testimonials

"Todd was very professional, timely and knowledgeable. He answered all questions and offered helpful hints and other professionals that may be helpful. He immediately made me feel comfortable and at ease. He showed me different types of mold growing. His report was complete in less than 24 hours, complete with pictures!"

"We got our results within the same week as the sample was taken. I would definitely recommend this company for any testing services."

Kathy S. - Bloomfield Hills, MI


"Todd from Tricor is top notch! With the patience of a saint! Todd was extremely thorough in the inspection and took the time to explain everything in detail to me as we went through the house. His being a licensed builder was also very helpful. He gave a lot of suggestions with repairs as well as answering questions pertaining to my home improvement project plans, which he did not have to do. I made a lot of phone calls to Todd long after he left and into the next day with other questions I had and he never made me feel like I was bothering him. He even came out the next day to check something out that I had a question about. Top quality!"
