Your realtor will most likely provide you with a short list of inspectors. How to pick the right one?
Start by asking for references, sample reports, and their Errors & Omission (E&O) Insurance. Are they part of their state or national home inspection associations? Often, these memberships indicate they have completed ongoing training and education.
Lastly, what’s included in your report? Your property may warrant specific certifications or specialties (think historical significance or unusual builds). By taking the time to select the right home inspector can save you thousands of dollars in costly repairs, litigation, and hassle later on.
