Yes! You want someone to inspect your potential home where the only interest is providing you with an extensive, thorough and comprehensive inspection while providing exceptional customer service. In some cases, your agent may recommend a home inspector. Most Brokers have a list of home inspectors they use and recommend. In order to determine if they would be a right fit for you here are a couple of questions you can ask them.
1. How long will it take you to inspect the home?
If they tell you anything less than three hours – RUN! Even 800 square feet condos will take Chris about 2-3 hours.
2. Do you have a sample home inspection report?
A sample inspection report will help you see how they present information to their clients and how detailed they really are in their inspection. Are the pictures clear and easy to understand? How long is the report?
3. Where can I go to find reviews?
Reviews are so important. It is a chance to see someone else’s point of view on their experience. You will gain a lot of information about your inspector and the company through reading reviews.
Hope this helps!
