Sample Letter to Send to Former Clients


Dear Former Inspection Client,

I hope you and your family are well.  It’s been a while since I performed your home inspection, and I wanted to touch base with you to let you know about some services I’m offering that you (or someone you know) could probably use:

  1. It’s almost winter, and I’d like to come over and inspect your home to make sure it’s prepared for the cold weather.  There are probably many items I can alert you to, and if you address them now, you can avoid major disruptions, repairs and expenses during the most inconvenient time of the year for household problems to occur.  For example, at the exterior, I can determine whether your roof, gutters and downspouts, hose bib, and even walkways are in good condition.  At the interior, I can evaluate whether you have sufficient insulation in your attic, whether your plumbing pipes are properly wrapped and frost-protected, whether your exterior doors and windows are sealed, and other items that can be negatively affected by cold wind, freezing conditions and moisture intrusion.  I’m offering my special Ready-for-Winter Inspection at a reduced rate of only $XXX.
  2. Are you selling your home?  It can be a difficult and long process. You want every advantage in marketing your home to prospective buyers. The best way to show that your home is a good investment is to have me perform a seller’s home inspection. As a Certified Master Inspector®, I will thoroughly inspect your home and generate a report, just as I would for a buyer’s inspection. The difference is that, as a seller, you can complete repairs and improvements before you show or even list your home.  And a seller’s inspection helps you justify your asking price, and can help avert any last-minute re-negotiations on price or condition.   Of course, I’d be happy to perform an inspection for the new home you’re buying – just give me a call.
  3. Do you know anyone who might be in need of my inspection services?  Whether it’s for my Ready-for-Winter Inspection, a home buyer’s inspection, a seller’s inspection, or any of the ancillary inspections I offer, I can assist your friends and neighbors with an evaluation of their homes to help them prepare for the weather, assess specific conditions and areas of concern, sell their home or buy a new one.  I’ve enclosed several of my brochures and would greatly appreciate it if you would tell them about me, or tell me about them.

Thank you in advance for the opportunity to serve you once again.  Please give me a call anytime at
