Finding the Right Home Inspector

First, and foremost, were here to help.

You get preappoved for your mortgage to find a home that fits your budget, right? Take some time and research home inspectors before you shop for a home. Once you submit your offer on the home that you just walked through, the clock starts ticking. You may feel pressured to quickly pick any inspector and ask friends, family and real estate professionals for recommendations.

Consider the fact that hiring a Home Inspector is unlike any other type of service. You’ll probably never actually even meet your inspector until after you have already retained their services. So how do make sure that you are making the best choice?

We recommend starting your search by looking up a list of certified local home inspectors at the InterNACHI (InterNational Association of Home Inspectors) website, www.inspectorseek.com.

Select an Inspector that provides services in your area.  Before you ask about price, ask about their experience and qualifications.  They should have a background and understanding of homes and/or home related systems. Ask if they are licensed and insured. If they are not, find someone who is. Things change in the home building world. Consider choosing an inspector that keeps up with continuing education. Ask to see their educational transcript.

Even if you don’t hire us, we’ll answer any questions you may have about home inspections or how to pick a professional home inspector. Please give us a call.
