Why Choose Blue Mountain

Supporting the Real Estate Process

My name is Michael Van Hall. I am a licensed residential home inspector in the Asheville area. I moved with Monica, my wife, to Weaverville from Northern California where we previously co-managed an upscale, off-grid hots springs resort and nature sanctuary.

Becoming a Home Inspector was directly related to my lifelong love of the industry. As a former Realtor and residential/commercial builder, I bring a unique perspective to the home inspection process that can benefit everyone involved.

Blue Mountain Home Inspection’s #1 priority is protecting your client's investment. We want their home to be an asset, not a liability. BMHI focuses on value over volume, ensuring trust between the homeowner, buyer, realtor and home inspector. Expect an affordable quality home inspection consultation.
