Too Many Choices?
With so many inspectors out there, how do you choose which one to use?
Choosing a Home Inspector can be very difficult. Part of the problem is that you may not even get an opportunity to meet the inspector until he shows up to perform your inspection. If you suddenly decide that he is not what you expected, it may be too late.
There are some steps you can take to ensure that the inspector you choose is going to be able to do the job for you.
Take a look at his credentials. What kind of experience does he have? Make sure you can verify his claims. Does he have links on his website that allow you to confirm what he says?
The inspector should provide you with some sort of resume outlining his qualifications. Does he have experience in construction so he knows how a home is built and what is important?
Does he have experience inspecting homes?
Does he keep up with new information through continuing education (Some home inspector organizations have much more stringent continuing education requirements than others).
Is the inspector backed by a $10,000 Honor Guarantee? (see at left)
Talk to the inspector. Does he answer your questions? Do you feel that you would be comfortable working with him?
I have listed my credentials and experience for you and I provide links to verify my claims (see Credentials). I also tell you my promise to you (see My Promise) and provide you with an outline of my experience (see Resume).
Take the time to look over the links on my "credentials" page and then give me a call. I will be happy to answer your questions.
