When making the investment of a lifetime, this is the first step in protecting yourself from purchasing a home with hidden costly problems or unseen hazards. You may be at risk, 1 in 12 are.


The launch of the Property Damage Report allows consumers, real estate professionals and home inspectors the ability to instantly check a property’s background, providing critically important information that may impact the value or more importantly, the health environment of any property in the United States.

Visitors to http://www.DamageHistory.com can perform a FREE search of any address to identify a property that contains a fire department incident report, or has been identified by law enforcement as an illegal meth lab location. Properties without any incident report events can print a FREE Good News Report.

Each search checks for 28 major damage event types including all fires, illegal meth lab activity, furnace malfunction, electrical problems, gas leaks, chemical / hazardous materials, carbon monoxide poisoning, toxic conditions, and smoke and water damage among others.

When an official fire department incident is identified, a report can be purchased which lists up to 90 data points that describe in detail the type of fire, the cause of the fire, ignition factors, point of origin, location of damage, the extent and degree of damage, the building and contents dollar loss estimate, duration of the event, equipment involved, arson, incident related injury or death, smoke detector function, and firefighting suppression actions.

Property Damage Reports are powered by a comprehensive nationwide fire department incident data library consisting of more than 62 million reports spanning from 1980 to present.

“Thanks to DamageHistory.com, we learned that the home we wanted had suffered a serious electrical fire causing more than $92,000 in damage. Unfortunately, the seller was less than honest with his disclosure; this left me wondering what else he may have forgotten to tell us…so we walked away before we spent hundreds on inspections," says M. Sawyer of New York. “We did find our new dream house and that realtor provided us with a Good News Report.”

“Our Property Damage Reports assist sellers with proper disclosure and also provide crucial help to buyers with their due diligence. Providing this information up front builds trust between the buyer and seller” says Rich Guerin, President of DamageHistory.com. “Use our report as one important tool, along with the seller’s disclosure, repair and restoration documentation and a professional home inspection to make a better decision about your next home.”
