Hire a Home Inspector Who Has Your Best Interests in Mind

You probably won't get to meet your home inspector before hiring them, so it's important to find someone who is dependable, trustworthy, and properly certified. Make sure you're hiring a home inspector who has your best interests in mind.

I've been certified by the American Home Inspectors Training Institute (AHIT) and have the experience and knowledge to ensure that you're armed with the best information possible. I also adhere to the Maryland Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics, in addition to the InterNACHI Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics.

I also encourage my clients to be present for the inspection, where I'll educate and familiarize you with your new home.


I have the experience and knowledge necessary to give you a clear look at the current condition of your home. I combine a formal education with real-world experience in the field to bring a trained perspective to every one of my home inspections.


The value of a home inspection comes from the potential cost of the issues it uncovers. I offer thorough inspections at competitive rates to ensure you get the most value, ultimately saving money and gaining confidence in your purchase.


I understand that you're busy. I'll work with you to schedule your home inspection at a time that works well for you. Although I strongly encourage you to tag along, your presence at the inspection is not required.


Even the most experienced and capable home inspectors are capable of making mistakes. I carry Errors & Omissions insurance, as well as General Liability insurance, so you can rest easy.

Home Buyback Guarantee

Just like any big investment, the prospect of buying a home can be scary. My goal is to provide you with the best information possible so you can relax knowing you made the right decision. But no matter who you hire, your home inspector is only human. That's why I proudly participate in the Home Buyback Guarantee, backed by InterNACHI. If I miss anything, InterNACHI will buy your home for whatever price you paid for it. Find more information on the buyback program, including terms and conditions.

Buying a Home is an Emotional Experience

It's far too easy to become attached to a home. I'm here to provide you with an independent, professional opinion so you can make the right choice.

A home inspection is an objective visual inspection of the physical structure and systems of the home. The inspection will arm you with detailed, unbiased information.

I'll uncover building defects, necessary repairs, safety hazards, and preventative maintenance issues that could cost you a lot of money down the road. I'll also help you understand which problems are major, and which problems can be corrected inexpensively.

A Home Inspection Is about More than Saving Money

Buying a new house is scary, especially for first-time home buyers. Many problems can be hidden or require a trained eye to notice. These include rotting floors, structural failures, moisture penetration, mold growth, electrical and fire hazards, and so on. Any one of these problems can turn a home into a money pit, or even put your family in danger. That's where I come in. A professional home inspection from Inside Out Home Inspector will help put your mind at ease and make the buying process easier.

Get To Know Me


I recently had an inspection done by Aaron for my second house and it was totally mind-blowing. The detail and time he put into the inspection notes were very comprehensive and detailed beyond what me and my wife were expecting. You can tell that no stone went untouched and that he truly enjoys helping families get the full picture of the home they are buying. I would recommend him to family and friends in a heartbeat.

Currently purchasing my first home & Aaron came out to perform the inspection and he was absolutely amazing! Prior to the inspection, Aaron provided a brief explanation of what would be done in the inspection over the phone so that I would know what to expect. Aaron was extremely professional, punctual, very thorough in his report & made this process go very smoothly. I would recommend Inside Out Home Inspection Services to any and everyone

Buying a house can be very stressful but Aaron made the home inspection portion very easy and informational. Many home inspectors are not allowing you to be there at the home during these Covid days but Aaron allowed us to be there with masks and gloves for safety. He was very knowledgeable about what to look for within the home and gave advice on how to upkeep the home after the home belonged to us. I would definitely recommend Inside out Home Inspector.

Aaron did an 11 month home warranty inspection on our new build to help us find any issues that needed to be corrected by the builder prior to our warranty ending. Aaron was incredibly thorough and explained all of the issues he found to us in detail. His report was extremely detailed and gave us all the information we needed to communicate the issues he found to our builder. He was great to work with and encouraged us to reach out to him after the inspection if we had additional questions. He was very responsive - he arrived on time for the inspection and sent our inspection report over to us the next day. Highly recommended!

My wife and I are first-time home buyers and Aaron from Inside Out Home Inspector recently completed our inspection... this guy is the man!

He was on time, very thorough, super cool, and what I enjoyed the most was that after each level of the home he inspected, I got to join him where he would then tell all the important details about what he just seen before he moved on to the next area of the house.

I got to learn not only alot about the home I am about to buy, but also I learned a lot about homes period. And as a first time home buyer that meant a lot.

If your in MD and you need a home inspector, stop looking now and book this guy.

Words truly can't express the service that Aaron Ankeny, (IOHI) provided me and my daughter. As I searched for a home inspection company, I ran across IOHI. From the very moment Aaron took the call, he spoke to me at length regarding the whole process. He answered all my questions without knowing if I was going to use him for the service needed. He went a step further and educated me on what I should look for in hiring an inspection company. Aaron is very professional, personable, and knowledgeable in his field. Aaron takes his profession, (gift/talent) serious and it shows in the services he provides.

Recently learned from my son that a friend of his had to go through a Radon remediation process due to a crack in their foundation. A Radon Inspection is not something we had gone through before and after reviewing how it could make my family sick, I decided to go through with the Inspection. A Real Estate friend of mine referred me to Inside Out Home Inspector and I am extremely happy they did. The Inspector, Aaron, came to my house and conducted the inspection. The process was simple, as he left a device at my house over the weekend and came back on Monday to get it. He made sure to work with my schedule which was very helpful. He also went above and beyond by not only completing the inspection but by also educating me on the causes of Radon issues as well as what to expect and how external issues like weather could affect the amount of radon in our home. Thankfully, our home was well within the acceptable threshold. I certainly will be using this company for any future home inspection needs I encounter and am very thankful for them easing putting my mind at ease so I have one less thing to worry about that could affect my family.
