About Waypoint Property Inspection

Our commitment is to deliver a five-star experience from beginning to end.

Waypoint Property Inspection, LLC was founded in Riverview, Florida in 2005. Bob Hintze, the founder, left the corporate world after decades of service and began to look for new opportunities. After doing extensive research, he saw a need for high-quality service in the inspection industry and decided that this would be his next venture. Today, Waypoint has over 21 team members and continues to grow both in size and influence. Waypoint is seen as an industry leader through the level of service we provide, and we also coach other home inspection business owners on how to take our success and implement it into their own business. As our motto goes, “we point you in the right direction”.

Client Testimonial

We had our home inspection done by Waypoint and could not be happier. The inspector (Jim Parsons) was thorough and asked if we had any concerns and he addressed all our questions. He was there on time. The report was sent to us the same day of the inspection and was very explicit in his findings. If we need another home inspection we will certainly use Waypoint.

Waypoint Property Inspectors never disappoint! I want my clients to have inspectors that give them the good, bad and ugly when making such a large investment when buying a home. I don’t like when inspection companies sugar coat inspections. Waypoint definitely looks out for their buyer clients.

We bought an older home and had concerns but from the moment we contacted them communication was great they sent two inspectors out plus a sub inspector for the termite inspection. We had our detailed reports by the end of the day with clear notation on the level of concern of the issue with good pictures showing the exact problem. I would use them again on all further house purchases.

I appreciate your services, people, and dedication to quality. James and Paul were great. James is very personable and phenomenal at sharing what he's finding while he's going through the house and will take the time to ensure we understand. When I got the report, the results were as expected. It brought comfort over my purchase decision. I'm glad Lori shared with me all the report options to ensure I had what I needed. Thank you for everything!

Having a home inspection can be nerve wracking - Norm made ours excellent and informative. He took the time to explain several things, and showed me where all the safety issues were (and explained WHY they were safety issues, and how to fix them). He was thorough and efficient. Thank you!

I am a first time home buyer and a new construction home buyer at that. I had some concerns regarding the quality of work. However, waypoint and their inspector Travis gave me the reassurance I needed to feel good about the purchase. Their inspector Travis was very detailed, professional and knowledgeable. Thank you very much Waypoint. I will be also getting my 11 month warranty inspection with them as well.

Waypoint was very easy to work with! I called them on Sunday and they were able to inspect on Tuesday. They did a home inspection, 4 pt. Inspection and a termite inspection. They sent the report and called that night to go over the results and followed up the next day to make sure we didn’t have any questions. I would definitely recommend working with them!

The inspection was on time and report was detailed. Gave me a phone call as soon as it was over . Great guy and did his job correctly. Helped me determine the house I was looking at had too many repairs. Helped me save thousands of potential liabilities for a first home. Thank you great experience and highly recommend to future home owners.

I had a great experience with Waypoint Property Inspection. I needed to book a house inspection quickly because I was just under contract on a property; Waypoint was the fastest, most eligible company to book in this current real estate market. The inspector was thorough, friendly, and communicated clearly. As an independent woman, I felt safe and my questions were tended to fairly and directly. The reporting technology is top-notched as they entered information on a tablet device as they worked, so they can give you an exhaustive updated at the end of their appointment of inspecting the property. Then you get a formal report sent to you the same day through email. This was a phenomenal process in this current hot real estate market- efficient and accurate. I highly recommend them and I would use them again for future inspections.

Had my first 4 Point Inspection and Wind Mit inspection today by Waypoint. Their inspector Norm was so helpful and through in his inspection. I learned alot about my property that I didn't know and he gave me a lot of good tips for getting ready to be reinspected at a later date. He was very personable and responsive. I would recommend Waypoint to anyone that needs an inspection for homeowner's insurance or anything else.
