HandsOn Home Inspections Colorado Springs & Pueblo

Bruce Fanning - Owner, Inspector
Hi, I'm Bruce Fanning,

I started looking at homes with my grandfather when I was a little kid. Since then I've bought, fixed up and sold properties, worked for several lenders, contractors, the Veterans Administration and inspected thousands of homes in the Colorado Springs or Pueblo Colorado areas.

The story of how I got started in real estate is in Robert Allen's book "The Challenge" --> .

I did my first home inspection in Colorado way back in 1978.

I called my first inspection company: "Your Home Advisor."
I may have been ahead of the curve from the get-go!

When I started Hands-On Home Inspections in the early 1980s, I was all alone, I knew nobody else in town who was doing pre-purchase inspections. I advertised in the Thrifty Nickel, two ads, one in their service guide, and one in the real estate classified cost just $1.10 a week!
I bought an ad in the Yellow Pages too, but they were too much money even back then! I sponsored softball and pee-wee football teams as well. Back then getting a home inspected before you bought it was unheard of, it was so not on their radar that several times shirts & uniforms I bought for teams came back printed "Hands-On Home IMPROVEMENT" The printers had changed it, thinking that "Inspection" had to be a mistake! BTW, I charged $39 for an inspection in 1982, I've always had the best price in Colorado!

Well here it is almost 40 years later and I love doing Home Inspections. Colorado has changed a lot in almost 40 years, home building has changed some as well. But I've kept up on those changes and I still have the best price for a home inspection in the state!

I inspect Residential & Commercial Properties, Mobile Homes & Trailers, Townhomes, Condos, and Cabins. From up in the mountains to out by the mall... I've inspected them all!

So if you or yours is buying a Home in the Colorado Springs or Pueblo Colorado areas, that's most of Southern Colorado - Please consider me when it comes down to choosing a Home Inspector.

I keep my overhead low and don't waste money on fluff (gold name badges, 16 color notebook binders, the yellow pages!, etc.) so I can always offer you the best price for your Home Inspection anywhere in Southern Colorado.
