FAQs for new home buyers
How do I choose a Home Inspector?
Purchasing a home is one of the largest investments you will ever make, so you want to make a well-informed decision. When you are choosing a home inspector, ask your friends and acquaintances, or conduct online research to identify a qualified home inspector in your local area with good reviews. In addition to asking the home inspector about their credentials, insurance, availability and cost, ask about what type of inspections they offer, and what type of report they will provide. After your conversations, discuss who is not only qualified and experienced, but who you feel will consider your needs and are most comfortable with to answer questions as you go through the process.
What qualifications or credentials should a home inspector offer?
The most important aspects to consider are that the home inspector is certified, licensed, insured, and has professional affiliations where they have to maintain the most up-to-date knowledge on the newest technology and building practices. Certifications in multiple inspections may be helpful to your pending home purchase, such as radon inspection, termite inspection, lead inspection etc.
