Your Trusted Inspectors

Shoveltown Home Inspections (SHI) is a 5-Star rated, multi-inspector home inspection firm serving Eastern Massachusetts. Owned and operated by Dean Murphy, SHI was conceived in 2016.  Shoveltown’s tagline, “We Dig Deeper, So You Sleep Better”, lays the foundation for all of our inspections. We are driven to find out as much as possible about the homes we inspect. We go above and beyond for our clients and judging by our reviews on Google, Spectora , Facebook, we are doing things right.

Buying a home is the single largest purchase most people make in their lifetimes. It is important to have a thorough inspection performed by a competent, Licensed Home Inspector. At SHI we take this responsibly very seriously, while still be being personal and real.

During all of our inspections we verbally report our findings to our clients. We also document these deficiencies with pictures. Within 24 hours of completion of the inspection we email our clients their professional Home Inspection Report. Our Report contains all of the findings, including pictures and recommendations to correct any deficiencies.

After digesting the Report, the clients typically discuss the report and deficiencies with their real estate professional (Buyers Agent), to determine the best path to address these issues. Buyers have several options: 1. Take the house as it is, 2. Ask sellers to make some repairs, 3. Ask for a reduction in price or sellers concession, or 4. Exercise their right to terminate their Offer to Purchase based on Home Inspection findings.

Our job is not to tell you to buy or walk, but to open your eyes and show you the present condition of the property, so you can make an informed purchase decision.  We are here to answer any follow up questions. We are always a phone call, email or text away from any future questions you have pertaining to your house.
We look forward to the opportunity to inspect your next property.

Dean Murphy, Owner
