When you buy a home a home inspection is something that should be done in order to ensure the home is a good livable condition with no major problems. But there are so many home inspectors available out there and it can be extremely confusing when you need to decide who you will retain.
There are a few things you need to look for before hiring a home inspector and if you ignore these, you may be setting yourself up for problems down the road.
Three of the most important things you need to confirm before hiring a home inspector is how long has the home inspector been in the business? Make sure they have at least a few years experience. The second thing is to make sure the home inspector has insurance, and can provide proof of insurance.
Normally this is called errors and omissions insurance. And number three should be what kind of background do they have. If they’re familiar with the construction process of building a home, then they will be better suited to find problems if they exist.
