How to Select the Right Home Inspector for You.
Most people are only involved in a few real estate transactions during their lifetimes. So it makes sense to call in experts to help them navigate the home-buying process and assess the condition and value of the deal.
But, with limited knowledge on the subject, most home buyers may find it difficult to be sure that their expert will live up to the title.
When it comes to a home inspection, most people just hire the person whom their real estate agent recommends. Yes, agents have probably seen numerous home inspectors in action and they are in a great position to help you select a good one. Just keep in mind, however, that the role of the home inspector can be in opposition to the interest of the real estate agent. The home inspector’s job is to find problems if they exist. Real estate agents by nature don’t like people who find problems with their deals.
