What to Look for in a Home Inspector

| April 28, 2021, 01:51 PM

Once an offer for the sale of a home is accepted, there is one big step that remains to be accomplished–the home inspection. This is the time when a professional will look deep under the hood for minor, medium, and big issues that come along with the home. Most issues typically fall under the “regular maintenance” column and can be fixed with some common household tools and an inexpensive trip to the hardware store. Some may require a professional contractor to correct and not be too costly. For example, when you are looking for a contractor for your home, you become like a student who is also looking for a professional writer for their essays, so they order custom essays at USEssayWriters. And then there are the biggies. When you find out that your dream home has knob and tube wiring; well, that may be a deal killer. The last thing a home buyer wants is to move into a dream house only to discover a previously undiscovered nightmare.

That is why it is critical to find and use a reputable and reliable home inspector; and here are five things you need to do to be sure you are on the right track for the right one.

  • Check qualifications: are they knowledgeable: do they have a construction/building background, are they meticulous, are they educative, do they have reviews and/or references, etc.
  • Ask how long a typical inspection lasts (a thorough inspection for a 2,400 sq ft home should last between 2 – 4 hours if someone states under an hour – this is usually not enough time for a thorough inspection).
  • Ask them to describe (or ask for an example) of their report… best ones include lots of photos and are 30-70 pages in length
  • Check reviews and references
  • Do they have a moisture meter and/or infrared camera to detect possible water leak issues that may not be visible to the naked eye.

A home is likely the largest purchase of your life. You want to make sure you are dealing with professionals that are looking out for your best interest.
