Home Inspection Company

Sherlock Home Inspection is an independent business – not a franchise – 100 percent owned and operated by Marc Marino. I have personally performed every inspection to the highest standard for more than 25 years.

I trained under a professional structural engineer before going off on my own. Based in New York’s Nassau County, I am a fully licensed home inspector who specializes in house inspections throughout Nassau, Suffolk , Queens, Brooklyn, and the Bronx.

I have a background in forensic science, and owned/operated a residential contracting company for many years. In fact, I have personally built two of my own homes from start to finish, giving me extensive knowledge of each and every aspect of home construction. I have personally inspected more than 5,000 houses in my time as a licensed house inspector in New York, giving me an unparalleled wealth of knowledge and experience.

The goal of any quality home inspection is two-fold:

  • First, an inspection should objectively discover, collect and record the facts about a prospective property.
  • Second, the report should clearly communicate these facts and answer any and all questions that the prospective buyer may have.

A comprehensive inspection affords the buyer a high level of comfort before moving forward in their purchase process.

If you are looking to sell your home, a home inspection allows you to see exactly what you are trying to sell, giving you a chance to make any repairs, updates or remediation needed before listing your home on the market. If you are looking to buy a home, a home inspection provides peace of mind, letting you know the exact condition of the home while identifying any prospective concerns that you can negotiate with the seller. Whether buying or selling, a home inspection can unveil issues that an untrained eye would not detect and could affect the home’s value.

A home inspection can save you time, money and aggravation down the road by finding any issues that a property may have prior to signing a contract. It gives both buyers and sellers a chance to address any issues that were discovered, whether repairing the problems or negotiating  the price down to account for issues. Sherlock Home Inspection offers complete and detailed home inspections, and has helped countless clients for more than 25 years solve the mysteries surrounding their prospective house.

Marc Marino is dedicated to ensuring that clients are completely comfortable and knowledgeable in the purchase or sale they are involved in. With a proven track record of success and thousands of satisfied clients, Sherlock Home Inspections is a home inspection company you can trust.
