A new home can make one of your dreams come true. However, that can easily devolve into a nightmare if faults with the structure come back to haunt you and your family. Instead of making a blind investment in a property that “looks good,” get the verification you need to make a smart decision.

At, I provide a wealth of general home and pool inspections in North Mississippi and Memphis, TN. With my skill and experience, you will get the right information to choose a home that best meets your needs. I work hard to dispel any uncertainty you might have when choosing a home, which allows you to close on a deal with confidence.

Certified, Licensed, and Trusted

I am Gene Ballin, a home inspector that serves the community faithfully. Since 1996, my business has empowered prospective homeowners with the knowledge and insight they need to find the properties that best suit them. From top to bottom, inside and out, I work thoroughly and diligently to uncover all of the vital details of the home you want to buy.

My approach to home inspection is exhaustive. I don’t just look at the surface—I also verify the integrity of a home’s systems and components. This allows me to present a working simulation of how your home might perform under normal conditions, which includes identifying potential issues or flaws.

Likewise, the reports I present to new home buyers are just as exhaustive. They include a wealth of photographs and a detailed report. When you choose me, you can feel at ease in knowing I will provide the relevant information that lets you see your future inside a home.

An Ally of First-Time Homeowners

Buying a home is like realizing the classic American Dream. You deserve to move into a property that will allow you to live how you always wanted. My inspection services are specially tailored to first-time home buyers.

A home inspection allows you to determine if the home you want to close on is the right one for you. It can also verify the safety of your investment so that move-in day is as seamless as possible. Allow me to help you make the right decisions. My inspection services allow you to save time and energy.
