Over 3600 Inspections Since 1997
Finding the Right Home Inspector:
 
Searching for the right Home Inspector can be a confusing and time consuming task. New inspectors seem to go in and out of business every day. Even established companies change hands or hire new inspectors all the time.

Therefore, the best place to start is with your Realtor. Your Realtor is familiar with your market and most will provide you with at least 3 referrals of qualified inspectors.

Next, call and talk to the actual inspector. Most inspectors are busy on the jobsite during the day and return calls at night. Since you will be relying on their skills, it is important that you feel comfortable with your inspector.

But, regardless of an inspector's previous work history or education, there is no substitute for actual inspection experience. The table below describes the most important factor -
   
EXPERIENCE
# of Inspections Experience Level
First 30 Training
Up To 100 Beginner
100 - 500 Experienced
500 - 1000 Expert
1000 or More Master
Therefore, always look for an inspector with at least 500 - 1000 inspections under their belt.

Other important considerations:
    -    Check to see if they belong to a national inspector trade group such as ASHI.
    -
    An average sized house should take at least 2 - 3 hours to inspect.
    -    You should always be encouraged to be present during the inspection.
    -    You should receive a professional custom report with pictures and not just hand-written notes.
