My Preferred Inspectors

I’ve met a lot of home inspectors and I’ve seen a lot of inspection reports. With a background in construction, I tend to be drawn to inspectors that have some construction background, who have a respect for the nature of the business and who will be candid and straight forward, as well as realistic with their reports.  I may adore these inspectors, but they may not be right for you.  Don’t hesitate to ask the inspector questions about their background, how they work, a sample of their reports and about anything else that may be of importance to you. Ultimately, this will be YOUR home, not mine. Who I like matters very little.  Also, keep in mind that while most inspectors will charge similar fees, the cost is not always reflective of their value. Determine their worth to you before you compare pricing. Your home is a big purchase and a big decision, don’t take this lightly.
