There has never been a more important factor in a real estate transaction than the disclosure of material facts involving the condition of the subject property. Sellers and their realtors are now held to the higher standard of disclosing what they should know about the property’s true condition before being obligated to complete the purchase. In most cases, Buyers, Sellers and their Realtors are not qualified to properly identify structural defects, electrical hazards, plumbing problems and other safety issues. To make matters worse, at this present time there is no Hawaii state requirement for educating, testing or licensing home inspectors.  It takes a multi-talented individual with a strong construction background and a keen eye for the details to properly inspect and provide a complete written report concerning the condition of a property.


Steve’s extensive construction background, vast knowledge and skills, together with his strong determination and friendly enthusiasm make him the perfect home inspector for today’s demanding real estate transactions.

I have dealt with many home inspectors and try to match the personalities of my clients with individual inspectors. I truly appreciate the way Steve does business.  He is extremely thorough and professional in the way he does his inspections.  Steve answers my client’s questions and makes comments where appropriate. I recommend his service- it is a pleasure doing business with him.

Both my buyers and I appreciate Steve’s direct approach to home inspections. When he discovers a problem he knows the correct way to explain the situation to the buyers without bringing about unnecessary concerns. He has more than the average experience in his field so he has a no nonsense style and won’t waste your time. He gets the job done in a professional and efficient manner.

I would highly recommend Steve Goodwin for your home inspection. He inspects every home like it is his own.  He takes the time to go over all of the details and answer any questions that you may have. He has great recommendations and maintenance tips where required. I have used Steve for my last three houses and I plan to use him for all of my future home buying.

We had our potential house inspected by Steve Goodwin in January of 2007. It was a very short escrow; therefore I was not able to give him much notice. He was able to accommodate our deadline and did so in a very through and professional manner. His insights and building knowledge were invaluable to our decision to buy our home. We highly recommend Mr. Goodwin and his company, Advantage Hawaii home inspections.

Dear Steve,
Thank you for the excellent service that you provided for us during our new home purchase. The report was informative and your explanation of how a house functions put both my husband and myself as ease during what could have been a very stressful experience indeed. Because of your findings we have had a $6,400 reduction in the price and have a great deal of confidence in our new purchase. We will certainly be recommending your service to our friends.
