Good Counsel Home Inspections LLC

Hello, I am John Hare. I am the owner of Good Counsel Home Inspections, LLC, a local company serving South and Central NJ. I am the sole inspector, and when you call you are talking to the person who will be performing your inspection. I have a decade of experience in the inspection and construction industries, and a technical background beyond that in physics, mathematics, and chemistry. I value honesty and integrity, and pride myself on the quality of my work. I do not cut corners while inspecting. My only concern is in inspecting your future home and making you aware of its current condition and safety issues that may affect you and your family. All of my reports are issued within 2 days of the inspection. After you read the report, I am available for discussion and helping you move forward. I look forward to providing you with home inspection services to the the highest industry standards.

I hired them for a home inspection. John did a thorough job and answered all my questions. After the inspection, he continued to provide information when I called. Very detailed and nice job.

Review by in Williamstown, NJ
Project: Inspect a Home
John inspected a home I had hoped to purchase. He was very thorough and took his time to explain what he saw as we walked through the property. The house I looked at turned out to be somewhat of a disaster, unbeknownst to me upon a walk-through of my own. He brought things to my attention such as the setup for moisture-related issues on the exterior of the house as well as the big boom of termite infestation on the interior of the house. He was knowledgeable about many aspects of the older home I sought to purchase, including plumbing and electric. He wrote his report in a timely fashion. It included pictures and recommendations for actions to take care of the problems he identified. Thank you John! Your expertise saved me from purchasing a home that had repairs I was not prepared to handle.

This is the parent of the buyer. We were very satisfied with the job done by this company. We will certainly use them again since this home did not work for my daughter . My husband and myself are thinking of moving to the area in the near future and we will call upon them again

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
