We used Kevin for a new construction build that sadly turned out not to be anywhere near ready for inspection/closing (builder issue), but despite the surprise he still followed through and gave us a thorough report and assessment of the unit as it was, even though this required much more work on his part than would normally be expected of a brand new home closing inspection. He was extremely helpful and compassionate in person throughout the inspection, and the report he provided afterwards was thorough and easy to understand. His attention to detail was outstanding and the photos provided in his report were clear and large enough to see what he was referring to. I saw many inspection report formats from neighbors who used different vendors for the same service in the Tampa/St Pete area and Kevin's was by far superior to all others. Highly recommend.

I used Bennett Property Inspection when I first moved into my new home. Kevin's level of detail was thorough and service quality exceptional. I was so satisfied with his service that I hired him again to do my 11-month inspection.

Kevin with Bennett Property Inspection is amazing!! I emailed him on the Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend and he responded within an hour. He did an inspection for a condo my husband and I are buying as well as a property my parents are buying. He completed both a general inspection and also a four point inspection. His reports were incredibly thorough, straightforward, and detailed. Not to mention he had them emailed to us within 24 hours! We highly recommend his services. Thank you, Kevin!

I used Bennett Property Inspection, based on Yelp reviews, and I couldn't be happier with Kevin's services. Purchasing a new home is stressful, and wanting to know what's right and wrong with it is crucial. Kevin did an outstanding job...unbelievably thorough!!! With little time to get this done, his time frame was on point and on time. Turn time on the report was less than 24 hours. His price for inspection was BELOW what I was expecting, which included a wind mitigation report. Great work, great price, great company!

"We are so glad we found Bennett Property Inspection. From the very first contact, Kevin was professional, helpful and we knew we were in good hands. When he was onsite performing our inspection, he spent a lot of time at the property and we have no doubt that he combed through and saw every single thing there was to see and note. He followed his visit with a comprehensive report that included a write up with pictures. We had his report within 2 days of his inspection. Pretty amazing! Kevin is not the cheapest but, he is the best and we're glad we chose him because we can move into our new home with awareness and peace of mind.
It would be hard for us to believe that there's an inspection company who operates like he does. That said, we recommend getting on his schedule (because it books quickly) - you won't be sorry!"
JVH, Odessa, FL May, 2018
"Quality of work is unsurpassed. I cannot say enough nice things about Kevin as a person and as a professional. Truly the only inspector you want in the Tampa Bay area."
T.K., Tarpon Springs, FL February, 2018
"Very detailed inspection and report! I was very happy with the service. I was actually suspect of the perfect score compared to other inspectors but now I see it is well deserved. You will get the actual owner who cares about professionalism."
C.M., Largo, FL February, 2018
"VERY timely and responsive communication! Professional, fast, thorough, affordable and attention to detail. Kevin’s a high quality individual with superb background and experience. "
K.S., St. Petersburg, FL January, 2018
"I originally called Bennett Property Inspection based on the excellent reviews I had read.I met with Kevin Bennett at a property I was looking at. His input,inspection,professionalism and knowledge were unparalleled:particularly when looking at an older home. The report was easy to understand and extremely detailed and helpful. Ultimately,I did not buy that home--and recently contacted Kevin again to inspect another property. Again: Kevin's punctuality-detailed scheduling and spot-on inspection process can't be beat.He has always allowed time for my questions and has been extremely informative:finding details I know I would miss. A valuable service--well prepared reporting and excellent customer service!! Thank you"
T.S., St. Petersburg, FL December, 2017
"Kevin was fantastic from start to finish. He replied right away, offered many recommendations for fixes when asked and spent ample time at the home. His report was detailed, thorough and clear. would definitely recommend!"
K.G., St. Petersburg, FL September, 2017
"Kevin Bennett was thorough and precise with his inspection. The report included enough examples to validate any claim. He did the job on short notice. Worth every penny. A+++++ work. Thank you."
A.M., Tampa, FL August, 2017
"Kevin Bennett must be the most honest and professional inspector on this business. His inspection was meticulously performed and he supplied a super complete and well elaborated report. He see things that I never imagine someone would check...He also did a wind mitigation that saved me thousand dollars on my insurance!! The insurance company was very impressed by his report, and even after the inspection he took my call to give me some advice on some of my concerns. Highly recommended. Thank you for the great experience!"
M.G., Tampa, FL May, 2017
"We recommend this company 100%. He was punctual, very competitively priced, and THOROUGH. Our recent experience with this company came on the heels of using another inspection service in Pinellas county that charged hundreds more, spent half the time, and who employed 2 inspectors who were moody, rushed, and unwilling to answer the most general of questions. This inspector gave us a lot of comfort in his willingness to share his expertise and time and made the daunting process of purchasing a home much easier. His report went above and beyond with not only his findings but also included suggestions on how to make the repairs and what is a true repair versus an update. Very detailed yet organized."
M.V., Largo, FL May, 2017
"This is my first Yelp review and Bennett Property Inspection is my motivation. We are juggling the house buying process from another state. Not an easy feat. Kevin's reviews convinced me that he could ease my stress and he did not disappoint! His inspection was methodical and thorough with verification in the form of 360 pictures! The inspection report is easy to read and well organized with photos referenced for each recommendation. His availability by phone, text, and email make it easy to communicate at your convenience. Thank you Kevin!"
D.S., Bradenton, FL April, 2017
"Kevin: THANK YOU! I know you have a super busy schedule and I was so happy to have gotten you to inspect the house we recently went under contract for last week. You were cautiously optimistic and pointed out all of the flaws in the house. I appreciate your knowledge and advice and honesty under this stressful period. Also, I know it can be difficult to juggle doing an inspection while also answering questions from the prospective home buyer and any other professionals out there the same day (roofer, electrician, etc) but you were so kind and generous with your time. Thank you for all of your help and your timely return of inspection and wind mitigation report. Three cheers for Kevin!!"
L.H., St. Petersburg, FL March, 2017
"As a first time home buyer, I had lots of questions. Kevin was very knowledgeable and courteous, not only answering my questions but explaining the answers and related information. He gave a detailed review of what he found before leaving, and sent the extremely detailed reports (inspection, wind mitigation, and 4 point) that evening! He's very responsive and responsible, you can tell he cares about his work. Definitely a great choice!!"
K.D., Tampa, FL February, 2017
"My husband and I are first time home buyers. My husband was the one who went to the inspection and reported back to me everything that was going on. Kevin made the whole experience so easy and understandable for both of us. He pointed out and explained everything to my husband and taught us a whole lot about what to look out for when buying a home. We are blessed to have gotten him as our inspector and would recommend him for anyone who needs a home inspection done."
R.O., St. Petersburg, FL January, 2017
"We had a wonderful experience with Bennett Property Inspection. Kevin is friendly, knowledgable, professional, and very thorough. He took the time to walk us through the property at the end of the session and answer all of our questions, and his detailed report was easy to understand with great photos. It really put our minds at ease having such a quality inspection done!"
C.C, Harbour Island, FL January, 2017
"Kevin is the most professional, courteous, and meticulous home inspector I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He is extremely responsive, accommodating to busy schedules, and does not leave any "stones unturned". I would highly recommend Kevin and Bennett Property Inspection to any buyer that wants the best of the best!"
J.L., Tampa, FL October, 2016
"Kevin was fantastic! He's incredibly responsive - whether via email, phone or text - all of my inquiries were responded to quickly (if not immediately). He was flexible the day of the inspection, and didn't mind that my husband could only come at the beginning and I could only come at the end. He took his time talking with each of us respectively, outlining the process and then carefully explaining the major - and minor - issues he found. His report was very detailed, including several photos and thorough descriptions. In talking with him, I found it extremely helpful when he helped prioritize some of the issues into what we would need to be prepared to repair/replace in the near term, versus further down the road (with basic estimates for how much time was left on certain appliances/home features.) As a former contractor, he has the knowledge and experience to advise on several matters, which I thought was outstanding. He even provided guidance after our new home was damaged in a tropical storm - a month after our inspection! I couldn't recommend him any higher - you will love Kevin!"
M.M., Tampa, FL June, 2016
"Professional, courteous and thorough. Highly recommend. Kevin is a great communicator as well and explained everything in detail. Cant go wrong with his services for home inspection."
T.D., Tampa, FL April, 2016
"Worth. Every. Penny. Sure, I could have found someone to do it for a hundred or so cheaper, but Kevin's thoroughness and communication was exceptional. I've never bought a home before, and for some crazy reason decided I wanted my first home to be an older bungalow in south Tampa. Kevin knew exactly what to look for, and his thoroughness impressed even my father-in-law who came along for the inspection (I can't adequately explain how difficult that is!). He made me feel a LOT more comfortable about the house I was buying, and documented every single improvement or repair I'd likely have to make. He even answered some additional general home buying questions for me that were likely outside the scope of what you could expect from a home inspector. Modern, too. So many stages of the home buying process are archaic and paper driven. Kevin was responsive via text message, took payment via credit card, and his finished report was in an easily shareable web interface that I could send to the various people in the process that needed it. I can't recommend Kevin strongly enough."
S.M., Tampa, FL December, 2015
"I was extremely satisfied with the professionalism, customer service, and the attention to detail provided to during the entire process! Bennett property inspection made me feel confident that I was getting the absolute most out of my property inspection needs! I strongly recommend using Bennett property inspection to anyone looking to purchase their next home!! Thank you Kevin Bennett for your services!"
D.R., Tampa, FL December, 2015
"I chose Kevin from Bennett Property Inspection based on great reviews I found on yelp and google and I'm so glad I did! Kevin is very thorough and extremely professional. I had my full, very detailed report less than 24 hours after the inspection! And, the report had a lot of photos attached so we can go back and know exactly what he was referring to. I'm going to use the inspection findings as a to-do list when I close on the property. Thanks Kevin!"
N.D., Tampa, FL October, 2015
"Kevin Bennett was the absolute best point of contact that I had throughout the entire home buying experience. His level of professionalism and dedication to being extremely thorough in his inspection was completely invaluable as a first time home buyer. He was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend him to any one of my family members and friends."
J.R., Tampa, FL July, 2015
"Initially I reached out to Kevin after a Google search and noticing his awesome reviews. I mentioned my tight timeline and he made it work. We had an afternoon appointment, however, Kevin arrived at the home an hour earlier because of the rain in the forecast - then promptly delivered an incredibly detailed and thorough inspection report roughly 24 hours later. We will definitely reach out to Kevin should we need another home inspection in the future. Kevin's prices may be comparable to other inspection companies, however, I think his professionalism, prompt responses via e-mail/text and the quality of his inspection report make him far superior to the competition."
M.K., Tampa, FL June, 2015
"I had great experience with Bennett Property Inspection last month. He was recommended from my Realtor. I called Kevin on the Saturday I to see if he was on the way and found out my Realtor didn't confirm the inspection Date. Kevin was nice enough to stop whatever he was doing an come out within about 20 minutes. I couldn't be more thankful as I needed the inspection done before Tuesday the next week. He had the full inspection done and report submitted to me by Monday.Kevin is very personable and very detailed. His website is great and easy to use. He even has great recommendations on how to fix any issues with the house you are purchasing. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a home inspection."
G.D., Tampa, FL June, 2015
"Perfect!!! Thorough, meticulous, detailed oriented, tremendous acumen, and above all ethical and fair. A++++++++"
J.L., Pam Harbor, FL June, 2015
My husband and I were clueless about buying a first house, but everything I read online stressed how important the home inspection is and said to find your own home inspector. I did my homework and Kevin's reviews were by far the best in the area. And boy, he not only lived up to my expectations but exceeded them! His report was tremendously thorough, with pictures to show exactly what the various problems with the house were. He was totally professional and very accommodating when there were scheduling problems on our end. He was extremely prompt in answering all emails and super helpful with all of my silly questions. In short, it was a joy to work with him, and I would do so again in a heartbeat. I kept wanting to ask him if I could buy him a beer to thank him for his hard work. He's worth the money and more.
J.R., Seminole Heights, FL April, 2015
"We hired Kevin to inspect a 4,500 square foot home in South Tampa. Kevin followed up with us on a Sunday morning! No other inspector (and we called a few) even called back until Monday afternoon. Kevin clearly communicated his fee structure and availability. Kevin asked us if there were specific areas of concern we wanted him to give extra attention to. Kevin performed the inspection the same week we contacted him, and provided his written report within 24 hours of completing the inspection. Kevin's written inspection report helped us negotiate a fair credit from the seller to cover some serious repairs to the home. Kevin is prompt, thorough, efficient, responsive, and patient. Kevin is the inspector you should hire. A++"
T.W., Tampa, FL April, 2015
"It's refreshing to find someone who enjoys the work they do, does an excellent job, and doesn't charge an arm and a leg for their services. Kevin from Bennett Property Inspection came highly recommended to us from a local realtor, and we couldn't be more pleased that we called him. From the initial telephone call, to the inspection, to the delivery of the report and follow-through, Kevin was a consummate professional. The report was extremely detailed, and included numerous photos to highlight areas of interest. Kevin's web site includes rough guidelines for home repair/renovations, which helped to provide an estimate for items uncovered in the report. The wind mitigation report resulted in a decrease in our homeowner's insurance policy, which is a savings that we will continue to receive year after year. To round it off, Kevin is just a super nice guy. It was a pleasure working with him, and I have no reservations whatsoever in recommending him."
J.C., Tampa, FL March, 2015
"Working with Kevin from Bennett Property Inspection was an experience worth writing a review about. This is the first time my husband and I were looking to purchase a home and Kevin could not have been more vital to the process. We had originally set our eyes on a very ranch style house (we love the old charm)...but we have two little ones and a "fixer upper" was that last thing I wanted. Kevin's thorough and professional inspection revealed a home in disrepair on several levels. We wisely decided to walk away and thank goodness for that because just a few days later we fell in love with a completely remodeled ranch in a gorgeous neighborhood. We asked Kevin to do the inspection here again, at this point I really trusted his work and felt confident that Kevin would be able to see past the "shiny surface" and make sure we were making a safe investment. He did a wonderful job and provided so much information about the home. I am happy to announce that we have a closing date on this home! I would highly recommend Bennett Property Inspection to anyone, anytime."
L.A, Tampa, FL March, 2015
Kevin is a top notch professional. Being an out of town real estate investor, I was unable to attend the inspections in person, so I needed someone that could walk me through all of the details that were discovered. Kevin took the time to do that in his report and was more than happy to speak with me further on the phone. Throughout my dealings with him, he was extremely courteous, professional, and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a good inspector in the Tampa Bay area.
R.C., Tampa, FL February, 2015
"Kevin was awesome. As a first time home buyer he made me feel very comfortable and explained thoroughly any questions I had about anything at all! He was extremely professional and I would definitely recommend him to anyone."
L.S, Tampa, FL February, 2015
"Bennett Property Inspection did an amazing job. Responded quickly, showed up on time and very professional. I've had many inspections done in the past and his pointed out things that most inspections might not catch. He past the time explaining everything to us. If I could give a higher higher 5 star rating since he went above and beyond my expectations."
