I contacted Affordable when I needed to have a 4-pt home inspection conducted on a newly acquired property. I dealt exclusively with Michael. Although he had a busy schedule and was getting ready to head out of town for a vacation, he made time to squeeze me in before he left on relatively short notice. He was on time, extremely knowledgeable and a consummate professional. I had my the report promptly and they were complete, clear, and very easy to read. Good customer service is so hard to come by these days but they made me feel as if I was their TOP priority. It was a pleasure working with them and I plan to tell all my friends and colleagues how wonderful they are. Thank you to the entire team at Affordable!!

Megan England

Mike is amazing! I called the number for Affordable Inspections on a Friday afternoon and got a answering machine. Mike called me back within 1 hour and he scheduled our home inspection the next morning which is exactly what I needed. He is very knowledgeable and he answered every question that me and my husband had. My children had to come with us during the inspection and Mike gave them a job to do so they felt as though they were helping out awesome. Mike is a super awesome guy and I highly recommend anyone who is looking for a home inspector to use him. He made it fun for the whole family.

Michael with Affordable Home Inspections fit me into his busy schedule and even showed up early. His appearance and attitude were very professional. He explained every step of the inspection in an easy to understand way. At the end of the inspection, I knew exactly what I was getting into by buying a house built in the ’50’s. I would recommend him to anybody who needs an home inspection.

carol Marshall

My husband and I are first time home buyers, so we went into buying a home not knowing much about the inspections involved. Mike Potts of Affordable Inspections, Inc. came HIGHLY recommended by a long time friend of ours, Ricky Reddick of Superior Roofing. From the first moment of introduction, Mike presented himself in a professional yet personable manner. As he went through the inspection for our Wind Mitigation, he was thorough and explained to us what he was doing, Mike also answered questions about other areas of our home demonstrating his knowledge and experience in all the areas of his expertise which is much more than just wind mitigation. We found him extremely helpful and honest with a genuine enthusiasm for his trade. I would recommend Mike Potts and his company to anyone needing his services.

Michael Monteclaro

Michael from Affordable Inspections was fun to work with. He came out to inspect a town house my fiancee and I are purchasing the same day the inspection was requested.

When he arrive, Michael led me through our future house pointing out different areas that should be of concern. He explained what needs to be identified in each room, garage and outside. The inspection process was very thorough, and he demonstrated knowledge in construction/electrical codes, as well as, state laws. His sense of humor was a plus too! Most importantly, his customer centric focus was seen through his attentiveness to my questions and in his explanations.

The emailed inspection report was very detailed with pictures, highlights and call-outs.

Get your place inspected by these pros. Definitely professional and affordable.

 Preston Fontane
Inspector Potts was as good as they come. His extensive experience was apparent from the first 2 minutes in the home as he identified multiple issues that I never would have thought of.
He did not rush and did not sugar coat the issues but instead said it exactly as it was. A true breath of fresh air in a society that is becoming more and more afraid to offend people. He uncovered numerous issues from electrical to wood rot and even went the extra mile to inspect the crawl space, which is not required in Florida.
Extremely professional and great communication all around, not to mention a great price.
I will absolutely be using Inspector Potts for all future home inspections.

Herman Hauck

We needed an inspection in a hurry. These guys were the only home inspectors filling all our requirements and they were able to accommodate us in only a couple of days. 5 star business, they let you walk with them during the inspection, and like their names says, they are affordable. . Mike is a professional, very knowledgeable and I can tell he is one of those lucky ones out there who actually likes his job. His inspection was very thorough, took very good notes and pictures, and he emailed me a great report in timely fashion. Mike also had good tips for routine home maintenance and pointed out things I needed to do to avoid problems in the future. I am very happy with the services received from Home Inspections.
 Josie Guo
Mike was extremely helpful and professional. And was being so patient answer our questions, and helped us out. Nice working with him!!

Greg Gum

I have worked with Mr Potts now on two different properties – the first I was selling, and the second time when I was buying. He goes beyond just inspecting and reporting, and has helped me determine affordable solutions to issues that were found. His inspections has always been spot on – not missing issues, nor making issues out of nothing. Thank you so much for your knowledge, wisdom, and helpfulness!

Jennifer Dos Santos

This is a review from the Rubim family, He did an amazing inspection! Will call on him for future inspections.
Erica St.Charles
Mike Potts just recently did a home inspection for myself and my fiance, As first time home buyers we went into this inspection not knowing what to expect and very nervous as anything could be wrong. He was very thorough, honest and walked us through every part of the home inside and out. We could not have had a better inspector, He treated us with such kindness and went above and beyond to be sure we had everything we needed to get our new home. He was awesome at working with our busy schedule, answered any and all questions and concerns we had, as well as we got all of our reports to us quickly since we had a short dead line for the inspection. If you are looking for a top rated, knowledgeable, overall great inspector, look no further MIKE POTTS is your inspector.

Frederique Guette

I only have good things to say about Michael Potts and his inspection. Thanks to him we were able to drop the price of our house by $30K and really find out what all was wrong with the place and what needed to be fixed. He was very thorough in his work and explanations, made everything extremely clear for us to understand especially since we are not from Florida. He explained how things work here vs where we live now (in Missouri). He gave us price estimates on what things might cost which helped tremendously in re-negotiating the house price. Thank you Mike again for your help and great work!
Jeeves Mitchell
Affordable and knowledgeable!
Mike did a great job for me on short notice. I told him of my specific concerns and he made sure to point out the positives and negatives. His construction background is also immensely helpful in offering up suggestions for solutions and fixes to issues. I’d definately use him again! Thanks Mike!
Kathleen Slaven
As a homeowner and business woman I happily and confidently refer Michael Potts to those looking for excellence in inspection of properties! Michael is reliable, courteous, and an expert in his field. His positive demeanor is delightful. Kathleen of N. Clearwater Beach, FL

Ryan Murphy

It was a pleasure to have Michael inspect our new home. He was very thorough, and explained all of his findings to me in great detail. He was very polite and didn’t mind explaining things multiple time to my wife who didn’t quite understand some of his findings 😉 If we ever move again, you can bet we’re calling Michael at Affordable Inspections! Thank you sir!
Laura Strollo
Michael gave us the best home inspection you could ever ask for I would refer him to anyone! He is also very accessible. Thanks Again Mike for all your help!
McMullen Estates LLC
Wow!! Outstanding job!! Mike inspected a property for me yesterday and I was blown away with all the great detail he had provided on the house. He sent me multiple pictures and analyzed the issues with the property in great detail. He was also able to explain to me the issues in an easy to understand manor. I will continue to use Mike to inspect houses for me for years to come. I still cant express house experienced and detailed Mike was compared to other inspectors I have used in the past. No comparison. Thank you!
Nancy Velez

Paul DiNicola
I had two amazing experiences with Mike. He first inspected a house that my wife and were very excited about as we are first time home buyers. He was honest and show integrity while pointing out all problems needing fixing immediately and shortly down the line. It turned out the house would have been a money pit and Mike brought us to reality.

He then came to a second house we were in contract with and again pointed out any minor issues needing updated and assured us we did great picking out this home. My wife and I are now first time home buyers and if not for Mike, we may be in the first home and in major debt with repairs. I highly recommend Mike and his team!

Jeff Haughn
I have used Affordable Inspections twice in the last two months. They have saved me some serious money. No doubt the premier company in their field.

Dean Miesner

Great man, incredibly easy to work with. Excellent results. Would recommend to any of my friends.
cecil hughes
I don’t care if your home is 1 year old or 100 years old, not using Affordable Inspections would be a terrible mistake. They work diligently and are extremely thorough. Great service to do business with.
Joel Gaitan
A conscientious, and flavorful observer Inspector Potts ensures that he is there for your best interest. He takes the time to meticulously inspect the property and encourages you participate in the process each step of the way.

You will leave the inspection knowing that every stone was overturned and reviewed by Inspector Potts.

Mike was an excellent, very detailed home inspector. We used him for our new home comstruction and he went above and beyond to explain everything in details about our new home. Look no further, hes the best hands down.

MRS Pinellas

Affordable Inspections did a great job on my home inspection.

Michael was very good and he took time and went over everything with me to make sure I understood. I would recommend Affordable inspections to all my friends and family.

Thank you again Michael,

Tamika West Bradley.

Presley Melson
I had some permitting issues on one of my projects, and Affordable Inspections was prompt on responding to all of my questions and concerns. They were able to assist with resolving all the issues we had with the municipality and the project was able to carry on as scheduled.
Charmaine Carter
I contacted Mike Potts to give me a second opinion regarding a home inspection. My husband and I were not comfortable with what our initial home inspector was telling us about the air conditioning unit in a condo we intend on purchasing. Mike was very frank and honest. He gave me the full rundown on the system, and was very clear. He gave my my options. I was so grateful for his assessment. I will pass Mike’s name on to anyone who needs an inspection. Mike — Thank you so very much!!

Gutta JR

I am very pleased with my home inspection. Mike was extremely thorough and took his time explaining all of his findings. I would recommend anyone to this company!

Christopher Loske

“My girlfriend and I are first time home buyers so picking the right person to do a home inspection was highly important for us! Mike Potts is an absolute professional! He was very thorough and explained everything with great detail. I would recommend him and his services to anyone! Thanks for giving us peace of mind knowing we are making the right choice!”
Jerrett Allmon
I have to say when we were looking for an inspector for our house that we were getting ready to purchase, we really weren’t being picky and were just looking for someone cheap in the yellow pages. We had initially contacted another inspector but we were calling after 5pm and had left a message. We left Affordable Inspections a voicemail as well, however unlike the other inspector Mike Potts called us back within 30 minutes. Quoted us a very reasonable price for our inspection and promptly scheduled the inspection within the next few days. Unfortunately some things with the buyer held up the inspection and we were forced to call Mike back and ask him to reschedule. Mike understood and scheduled the inspection 2 days later.

Having only spoken to Mike on the phone up to this point I wasn’t sure what to expect. When I got over to the house Mike had already met with my dad and the inspection was already underway. Mike promptly stopped what he was doing and he came up to me with a smile and enthusiastic demeanor. He shook my hand and thanked me for choosing his services.

As I watched Mike go through the process of checking the house I noticed he was very thorough. He took pictures and voice notes as he progressed. He would occasionally crack a few jokes to keep the mood light. He took his time to explain to us what problems he found as he found them and made sure we understood them.

Once we completed the inspection we all sat down and discussed the issues and once we were all on the same page, we signed the paperwork and paid Mike. Prior to leaving he requested if he could get a picture with us. We of course took a picture.

Bottom Line: Mike Potts is a very good guy and will go out of his way to make sure you are satisfied with his services. I know I can count on him for all my future inspection needs.

Thank You Mike!

So glad I found Mike Potts from Affordable Inspections to help me with my condo inspection. I currently live in Georgia and put an offer on a condo in St. Pete Beach. Mike called me after the inspection and answered all my questions and went over the inspection with me.
Next day he emailed me my report along with pictures. Mike is very professional, helpful and friendly! I highly recommend him!!
Thank you Mike!

Jakub Knitter

Mike was able to come out and perform an inspection on a pretty short notice saving my day. He was extremely thorough and was very able to paint a risk framework around the issues he found. He didn’t try to sugarcoat the issues and told me exactly what would need to be done. I found it extremely useful to hear not only the mechanical background, but also the regulatory environment surrounding some of the issues. Mike also had all the tools needed for the inspection and handled himself in a very professional manner. I strongly advise to try to get Mike to come out and do your inspection.

Craig Vogeley

Michael Potts is a very enthusiastic person where it is clear he loves his job. We used his company for inspecting our house prior to purchase and for a follow-up report when we changed insurance companies. Both reports were very comprehensive and reasonably priced. He was highly recommended by our realtor, was very nice to our child, communicated in a timely manner, and is an all-around positive person.

C. Will

If you’re looking for a reputable inspection company, look no further. Simply put, Mike Potts at affordable is the person you want. Thorough, straight forward, and intuitive. As an inspector he is on point, informative and knowledgeable. Add to the fact his personality and no-nonsense approach to his work, you can rest assured you are in good hands. Mike, you’re the man. THANK YOU!

Donna Singletary

We hired Affordable Inspections to perform inspections on our home throughout the construction process. Mike Potts is thorough, honest and extremely knowledgeable regarding construction methods and the most current code requirements. He also strives to educate the customer, explaining various construction practices and future maintenance issues. As our final inspection approaches we feel confident that we are getting the quality investment that we are expecting in our dream home based on Mike’s observations and that we will create a proper, complete punch list for our builder. We would highly recommend Mike’s services.

matthew schenker

Mike is the man!

Everyone and their mother has a home inspector they want you to go to but you need to go to him. He is no nonsense and tells it how it is. His reports are extremely detailed even down to cost of repairs. The best of all he is the best for the price. You wont find anyone better.
He walked me through the property I looked at while buying my first home and talked to me person to person. Telling me what I can fix on my own and what I needed to replace professionally, with costs and really went the extra mile answering all my questions.He will be my inspector for every home I buy.

Lori Puskar

Great job! Came within a day. Knew their stuff, trustworthy and was very thorough. All for a great price. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a quality service .

Wynn Poe

When I purchased my home a couple of year back, I was referred to Affordable Inspections, and with GREAT reasons. Mike and his team came out to the house and presented a report with more pictures and information than I could have ever …More
Chris Smith
Mike at Affordable Inspections, Inc. did an inspection at the last minute right before my home insurance company was going to discontinue my policy. There was a hurricane coming and our house was right in the path. Mike ended up saving me thousands of dollars and was available when no one else was. I’ve also recommended his services to several others, and he’s done a wonderful job for all of them. He is competent, friendly, affordable and will go the extra mile for his customers.
Lindsay Riley
I can’t say enough about Mike & his team! Mike completed inspections on two different homes for my husband and I, and did an amazing job!! For how thorough and informative he was the first time, we HAD to have him for our second inspection. It’s obvious he’s been doing this for many years, as he didn’t skip a beat, which shined through in his reports. Being a first time homebuyer, this can be a stressful process, but the one thing I appreciate most is an honest and REAL person when it comes to the nitty gritty–the inspection. Without Mike, we would have gone in blind. He really explained things in a way we could understand. He was honest, extremely helpful, and just a great person all around.

Thanks Mike and Team for all you do!!

Mike was great in getting an honest and thorough inspection. Very informative and caught things that a previous inspection should have but did not. Mike also explained everything as we went along and made sure we understood before he was finished. Great inspection!

Lance Marcor

Inspector Potts is simply amazing at his job. He is honest, loyal, punctual, and has over 25 years of experience in his profession. I have had a lot of Realtors tell me other inspection professionals are in and out within 30 minutes. Inspector Potts is very thorough and takes his time b/c of his loyalty and his knowledge. I and my family have used Affordable Inspections on multiple home inspections in the last 17 years and they are always very thorough and honest. You will not be disappointed with Affordable Inspections! They are the Best!

Tim Diesel

Fantastic! Michael Potts is a very knowledgeable inspector with many years of experience. Highly recommended.

David Sullivan

He helped my friend through the inspection phase of buying a house. He found issues I didn’t know were there which I used to renegotiate a better price.



Nichole McAuley

Hands down the best Inspection company in Florida, Michael saved us from making a costly investment in the wrong property. Michael’s deep knowledge and experience helped my husband and I understand exactly what we were getting into. I would not hesitate to recommend Mike to anyone making a home purchase, especially a first time home buyer!

Tony Saieva

I needed a timely new roof inspection when my insurance company threatened non-renewal of my policy. I called in the morning and they came out with same day service at a really great price. I would highly recommend and use again.

Lindsey Corbett

Thank you Mike and Team for making our inspection easy and affordable. We appreciate your diligence in making sure our family will be safe in our new home. I mostly respect that you were honest and gave us suggestions along the way since the house is a reno! You provided a very thorough inspection as well as some laughs along the way J We will be sure to refer our friends and family to you in their future home purchases! Thanks again Mike!!

Affordable Inspections, Inc. is a great company to work with. They are very professional and were able to complete the inspection the same day I called. If you need your home inspected, Affordable Inspections, Inc. is who you should call. Talk with Michael Potts, He explains everything going on with the inspection.

Mr Potts is awesome. He went over the house with a fine tooth comb saving me so much time & money. He noticed the hot water tank had a bit of rust & the power box wasn’t up to par. His patience with me was extraordinary, he took time to clarify & answer all my questions. I’m thankful he is my corner looking out for me.

Kate Philbin

Michael Potts was prompt, courteous, and very professional. His inspection was thorough. I would highly recommend him to do your home inspection. He is available seven days a week, a pleasure to talk to and fun to be around.

Fred Clark

Mr Potts was very helpful with giving me tips on home repairs to help save me thousands down the road & i really appreciate that! their price was lower then the rest is the reason why i went with their service . Please do not hesitate with using Affordable inspections !

Paulette Nicole

I would Highly Recommend Mike and his company! The word AMAZING doesn’t even come close! He is very meticulous and thorough! He is very good at his job and how he conducts himself!

Rachelle Sobkowiak

Mike was extremely knowledgeable and very thorough during our home inspection. I am so happy that we chose Affordable Inspections to get the job done! We learned every detail about the home and were very happy with Mike and his team. Mike brought three of his best men along with him, one of which was the termite inspector. My husband and I were extremely satisfied with this company and would recommend it to anyone needing a home inspection!

James Johnson

Mike Potts is by far the best inspector I’ve ever dealt with. He was very thorough and provided an excellent report. Professional, courteous, and friendly. I’ll definitely be using him again.

Chris Shell

So happy I found Mike to help me with my home inspection. The home I fell in love with was on the older side and I knew there might be some issues; I was worried I would not be able to get a good inspection in time. Mike came out the day after I called him and spent an extended amount of time answering all my questions as he did the inspection. Based on his detailed report I was able to get the home and get the seller to put a new roof on. So glad I used Affordable Inspections.

“We hired Affordable Inspections to inspect our potential home purchase. Mr. Potts and his crew took their time going over every section of the home explaining as they went what they were looking for and what they were finding. He discussed with us things that were great and he discussed with us those things that could use some work and in the end provided us with a comprehensive inspection report for our files. In the end I felt as though this inspection completely went over the home and I felt confident in making the purchase. I also felt as though I knew where any of the minor problems were. I would definitely recommend affordable inspections. Your.palm harbor inspector.”

“Mike is everything and more of what you would expect in a home inspector. Mike is knowledgeable, well spoken and very thorough. He inspected our new home in Belleair Beach and took his time in his inspection, explained everything to us in great detail and even included my boys in the home inspection process! Mike provided timely and detailed reports as well. My family and I truly enjoyed the home inspection process with Mike – very informative and entertaining as well!”

“Called and spoke with Michael and he was extremely helpful.   I was seeking an inspection, particularly on the HVAC system of home, and he provided amazing insights and incredible knowledge.  If you need a home inspection for a potential purchase or on a home you currently home, please do not hesitate to give Affordable Inspections a call and ask for Michael.”

“This was the second inspection Mike has done for us. He’s very thorough and takes the time to explain everything and answer any questions you might have. He is very open to listening to concerns as well. He’s also punctual and does a great job with his reports, always getting them done very quickly. On a side note, he’s got a great sense of humor and makes the stressful process of home buying a bit more bearable. Highly recommend. Thanks for everything Mike!”

“I highly recommend Mike and Affordable Inspections! Very thorough and professional. Mike took the time to personally take the time to explain and show me not only what needed immediate attention but also point any potential issues. It made a big difference, in my opinion, trusting a professional that is very knowledgeable of the local area and being well versed on the unique aspects of how that can affect your property.”

“I’m a REALTOR. Mike has inspected quite a few homes for my clients. He is always on time. professional and patient in explaining conditions that he finds on homes. HIs background in construction and engineering adds value and his extensive knowledge in these areas is always apparent. The reports he provides are detailed and always on time. Of great use when I have to negotiate with sellers on repairs. Thanks for all your hard work Mike.”

“Mike Potts was amazing when it came to my inspection. As a first time buyer, or even not, he is so informative and helpful. I am a first time buyer and he wanted to make sure I understood everything and explained things so that I understand what is wrong and different things I can do to fix it. He made sure to show me so I could see what was an issue and what was in good condition. He even let me go on the roof to show me the shingles and stability of the roof. He was so thorough and didn’t leave anything out! I would highly recommend mike and this company to anyone!”

“Once again these guys came to my rescue this morning. I’m still searching for a house to call mine, with many months and conversations into the hunt. At last moments notice Mike came through to inspect a house I thought had potential. If I could give him ten stars here I would for his attentive patience with me and his teams knowledge about properties. Their attention to detail is outstanding, no one else has broken down the truth about houses like they have for me. I have truly been given an education by them every time we speak about my purchase endeavors.”

“Mike is the most knowledgeable inspector you will find in Tampa Bay. He just did an inspection for me on a home I was looking to purchase. He impressed me with the details he pointed out as he walked me through the home. We went from the top of the roof to the ground looking at every positive and negative that the house had. He took the time to answer all my questions and had a ton with patience with me understanding that I’m a first time home buyer. His customer service will draw me back to him for all future inspections I need. His company is highly recommended by me and his services are deff worth the value.”

“Affordable Inspections is an excellent choice for home inspection in the Bay area.  As a first-time home buyer, I was as little concerned about the inspection process and looked for a highly reviewed service at a reasonable price.

Mike Potts (the owner) has around 20+  years of experience working in homes in the area, and it shows. Here’s some things I liked about the service:
* He knows homes inside and out, and what to look for in the houses specific to this area.  The knowledge base is definitely there.
* He was on-time to the appointment and promptly returned any missed calls.
* He encouraged us to walk along with him during the inspection, teaching us things we should know about our house and possible remedies for some problems.
* He didn’t rush, we were there for over 3 hours on a small property on 42nd St N St Pete.  There was never a feeling that we were inconveniencing him, or that he wanted to quickly finish up.
* We received all the paperwork in a reasonable timeframe:  Summary, WDO, 4 pt, and Wind Mit.  Then he emailed us ALL the pictures he took so we could have them to reference in the future.
* An insurance company asked for additional documentation regarding the plumbing, which he was able to provide within 12 hours.
* He followed up the reports with a call to verify our satisfaction with the product, and to let us know he was available should additional needs arise.
* Finally, the price!  Other comparable inspection services were charging over $100 more for the same set of services (all the major reports and paperwork follow-up).
Recommended, especially for first-time home buyers as you will receive education about your house in addition to all the paperwork.”

“Mike Potts from Affordable Inspections performed a 4 point inspection of my home. He was professional, on time, and thorough in his explanation of his work process. I was surprised at the level of detailed work and information he gave me regarding my home. Thanks Mike for doing a stellar job. I highly recommend Affordable Inspections!”

“The Inspector on the property was very thorough, informative and professional. From beginning to end, I was encouraged to ask questions and seek clarification on every aspect of the property’s construction, mechanical systems and maintenance. I believe I gained valuable information about the property, and I was also encouraged to seek outside sources (contractors/town) for answers to questions which were not immediately available at the property. The inspector was articulate and clear in his explanations and evaluations.”

“Mr. Michael Potts performed the inspection and I now understand why he came so HIGHLY recommended. My daughter bought a home in Tampa last summer and Mike performed the inspection there and she and my son-in-law were very impressed with his work and extremely satisfied. Mike is a true professional and obviously a master at what he does. If you asked me to rate his thoroughness on a scale from one to ten I’d have to say 100. He made sure I understood each and every aspect of the inspection from start to finish. It was a learning experience for me. I feel more comfortable now about buying this home.

After listening to Mike explain details about electrical, plumbing, roofing, heating systems, etc. I now feel more secure that I can own a home on my own. Thank you, Mike, for doing such an excellent job.”
Esther P.

“Mike was very polite & professional, Got down to business, and was all I had expected plus more. He showed me things that I would have missed. I’m very pleased with his work, and will recommend him to anyone looking for this kind of service. What a peace of mind he has brought to us.”
Fred & Mary T.

“To Whom It May Concern: I am writing to let you know the experience that we had with your company and Mike Potts… Mr. Potts was very through in his inspection of the home and very easy to ask questions and his answers were easy to understand and complete as far as not needing to ask him to elaborate on the subject any further. He was also very patient during the inspection, we had our 4 year old son running around trying to do as the “Big Boys” do (following his Daddy & Mr. Potts) around asking many questions and not being very helpful. Mr. Potts was very helpful and we are glad to have him as our consultant for the length of the time that we will own our home.”

I felt that Mike did a quality job on the inspection and with any questions I may have had. Congratulations on a job well done!”

Affordable Inspections went above and beyond for me today. All questions were answered and Mike Potts took the time to explain everything going on. Being a first time home buyer, I found Affordable Inspections to be incredibly helpful. I was able to have Mike and his crew come out on a few days notice. These guys really know what they are doing and it was worth every dollar spent. Mike made me feel like I was part of his family, while explaining things to me.

I used Mike Potts because he was recommended to me by a great realtor, Jewel Defiores. I am so glad I took that advice. Mike inspected two homes for me, at a fair price. He is incredibly thorough with his inspection, his experience shows and he is clearly very knowledgeable. He takes his time, and he enjoys teaching and informing along the way. His inspection is something you can be very confident in – mine included a four point inspection and wind mitigation. . I HIGHLY recommend him. I am very glad I hired him — TWICE!

Mike Potts is not only extremely knowledgeable but accessible. He has a way of putting one at ease at a time that can be very stressful. His extensive education and professional background are apparent from the moment he sets foot on the property. Mike took the time to learn about the building that he was inspecting; gave a thorough evaluation; and, spotted things I would have definitely missed. He even gave me a quick overview of the electrical panel and put my mind at ease that it was more than adequate for the building’s needs. His follow-up report was easy to understand and very thorough. Best of all, Affordable Inspections lives up to its name! I highly recommend Mike and his team!


I have been looking for months now at houses to buy and I’m very leery of making that purchase commitment as I am a first time buyer. Mike has stuck by providing prompt inspections through my roller coaster of 4 offers on different properties and he has devoted many hours wasted on disappointing duds. His inspection expertise has saved me a lot of money in the long run on all those hidden fixes I have dodged. Mike is very professional and savy, he is always up front about risks and extreamly thorough when he’s working. I believe knowledge he shares with his clients will help you make the best choice for your needs over other inspectors I’ve called hands down.

We were referred to Affordable Inspections, Mike Potts, by a friend who used him for an inspection, and we are so thankful we found him! We used his services to inspect a home we were going to purchase, and we also had him inspect our current home. He was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and fair. He was also great at explaining things that he found. I would not hesitate to refer him to anyone I know, and in fact I have done exactly that numerous times over. You could not find a better company than his to perform your inspections.

I used Mike for my inspection on a home I was looking to buy and he was wonderful! He explained everything to me and since I’m a first time home buyer it was nice to have someone be so thorough; he also gave me great tips on how to maintain certain things within the home. I would recommend him to anyone!

Steve Glass

I happened across Affordable Inspections based on the recommendation of a colleague. Mr. Chris was the inspector on that day and I’m glad he was there. As a third time home buyer, I have yet to see an inspector as thorough, meticulous and caring as Chris. During the inspection that he did for me, we immediately knew that Chris’s goal was to protect our interests and to inform us of any issues with the property. He took the time, in a relaxed but professional manner, to explain all the technical issues to us in a simple and easy to understand fashion. Chris offered nothing but a very thorough inspection and a clear, professional articulation of the findings. His report was very detailed and descriptive with pictures and corrective actions needed so we had the information we needed moving forward. I highly recommend Chris’s services and experience.

I am a licensed insurance agent and tn this capacity I have had many occasions to work with Michael Potts. Mike has always been a total professional when working with me and even more importantly when working with our mutual clients. Many clients have made a point to tell me how thorough, knowledgeable, and courteous he is. He understands the sense of urgency this industry requires and always makes himself available even on many weekends and major holidays in order to turn around the required documents with sufficient time for me to quote and bind the policy for the client.

Mike has also made me a better agent because he has taken the time to explain construction details and potential issues related to them. I can then better explain the specific situation to my clients as to why or why not their home is insurable and what may need to be done in order to make it so. I unequivocally recommend Mike for any and all of your home inspection and renovation needs.

Rujira Wongpalee

Having a Bachelors Degree in Building Construction, and many years experience as a Project Manager has given Mike a full understanding of both residential and commercial structures. Mike provided a thorough inspection, and give me all the knowledge I needed to make a confident, educated decision regarding my purchase and renovation.

Michael Potts/Affordable Inspections completed a 4 Points Inspection on my home last week. It was by far the most complete inspection I have ever experienced.. And, as a results of what his team pointed out, I replaced my original, 47 year old, braker box, possibly prevent a future fire hazard. Thank you Affordable Inspections.


We had a great experience with Mike from Affordable Inspections. He arrived, went over all of the legal mumbo jumbo, then headed to work. The inspection lasted about over two and a half hours. Whenever he found something that was questionable or a failure in the inspection he always came and pulled us aside and explained what the problem was and how it should be addressed. The finished report was sent to us that night and we had no problems getting him back to re-inspect some items that he failed on the first inspection. Mike was fun to chat with and very knowledgeable, he made this experience as painless as possible in an already stressful situation of trying to purchase a home.

This Company is in one word “Amazing”. Mike Pott’s was the best home inspector I have ever used. He went threw every single detail of the home. He was processional, courteous and excellent. He gave the most detailed Inspection report I have ever seen. I am a former Investigator and his home and inspections was the best I have ever seen! His price was very reasonable. I would only use this company in the future!! If you want the best it is these guys..

I recently used Affordable Inspections for my upcoming home purchase. This will be my first home, and I am very pleased with the service from Affordable. If you want a THOROUGH inspection this is the company to hire. Every aspect was covered, and Mike was able to answer every question that I had. The service and customer service were great!

“I hired Affordable Inspections to inspect my upcoming purchase. It is an older home, and WOW did they do a thorough job. All items (good or bad) were pointed out. After minor repairs were completed, they even came back out, and did an updated 4 Point inspection (AND I SAVED $$$ ON INSURANCE!!). I would recommend their services to anyone.

Highly recommended! I used Affordable Inspections Inc. 5 years ago. So when I needed a wind mitigation for new homeowners insurance I knew exactly who to call. I knew I would get professional, prompt, thorough, and affordable service. Thanks Mike.

 Was the worst ever. Was rude and talked down to both me and my realtor, would not recommend to anyone who has dignity. His reports are horrible, very unprofessional.

I recently moved to Pinellas County, Largo, and called Affordable Inspections. Mike Potts, the owner came out to my house that I recently purchased. He did a fabulous job! He is knowledgeable, and gets straight to the point, and very professional. Not only did Mike do a great job, but he also gave me contacts of companies with a reference to a few items that I needed to take care of around the house.
He knows his stuff and he explained everything that he was to do and check.
I highly recommend Mike Potts of Affordable Inspections to all of my friends and family. Thank you so much Mike and I look forward to working with you always in the future!
I feel like I have a new big brother watching out for me.

I recently used Affordable Inspections to inspect a home I purchased in St. Petersburg. Mike the owner was able to accommodate my short notice as I was in from out of town and had a flight out later that day. I’ve been a licensed Realtor in Michigan for more than 10 years and have used many Home Inspection services. Mike blew them all away! His attention to detail and willingness to take the time to explain things to me was incredible. He provided me with a detailed report of more than 50 pages and nearly 200 pictures. Several times I needed Mike to provide information to my lender and insurance company and he did this promptly. I was able to make a wise and informed offer on this home, thanks to Mike. Mike has been a valuable resource for me after the inspection, promptly providing me with information about contractors and services. Buying a home is difficult anyway. It’s even more difficult from out of state. Mike helped make it much easier. I’m sure I made a much more informed decision with Mike’s help.

“We wanted to take a moment to provide compliments on an impeccable job well done on both properties you have worked with us on. On the first one you saved us a world of headaches and financial difficulties with your extensive knowledge and expertise; and today that knowledge has shown through yet again. Thank you for your hard work and professionalism, please feel free to pass this along to your supervisor as well.”
Thomas F.

“Mr. Mohr …this is a long overdue note of appreciation for your fine service and professionalism. You completed a very thorough inspection and although the owners of the home were there during our inspection and kept interrupting and “seemingly” trying to have us bypass certain areas (the central air and attic area) you insisted and diligently continued to inspect despite their efforts. That kind of professionalism and work ethic proved to us you were trustworthy and our minds were at ease about purchasing our home.”
