4 Tips for Finding the Right Home Inspector

4 Tips for Finding the Right Home Inspector

 this article by Mays Paveza she points out  that an essential part of home buying is having a home inspection. Even if you are purchasing a property in “as is” condition it is wise to do a due-diligence home inspection so you can try to get a true read on the condition of the property.

She also states that, "Often times Buyers are told by friends or family to use an inspector they used, or not to trust the one their real estate agent recommends. I think it is wise to consider the inspectors your real estate agent recommends. Remember that we deal with these people day in and day out, have some idea of their reputations, performance, experience, thoroughness and presentation. All of those things are important when you are having a home inspected."

As a agent you get to know what inspectors to use and which ones will blow the deal. It's not because they found something wrong with the property. I want any problem's with the property made known to the buyer. The inspectors who want to give their opinion as to what is a good property and what is not are usually the ones that blow the deal.  Example: Mr. Inspector say, "I would never buy a house with an inground basement or I would never buyer a house with electric heat or I would never buy a house that is on well and septic ......"  these are opinions. I want facts not opinions.

Mays Paveza's  Top 4 List for Recommending a Home Inspector:

1. Factual without dramatic overtones.

2. A proven track record constantly reviewed.

3. Experience before becoming an inspector.

4. Reliability.
