When you make the life-altering decision to purchase a new home, you’ll need to go through a home inspection to evaluate the home’s condition before you close. This stage of the real estate transaction can make all interested parties nervous as they await the report on the home. With over 25,000 inspections completed in the last 15 years, All-Pro Home Inspections has the experience and expertise to assess your home effectively and deliver a comprehensive home inspection report. Let’s go through three things you should take into consideration before you hire a home inspector.

Certified Home Inspector

1. Ensure They Have Credentials and Insurance

We’ve all heard the age-old wisdom that you get what you pay for, and that can apply to many situations in life, including the home inspection industry. Be careful not to choose a home inspector based on the lowest rate you can find. You want to hire someone who has the experience, certification, insurance, and reputation to back up their claims. After all, buying a house is one of the biggest decisions you will make in your life.

2. Find Out What Customers Are Saying About Them

You always want to read the reviews before you trust the services of a home inspector. If you notice some less-than-stellar reviews for a home inspector, take note of how they responded to the reviews or whether they have responded at all. See if there are recurring complaints in all of the negative reviews that would warrant a new direction in your search for an inspector. All-Pro Home Inspections is proud to have over 600 5-star reviews left by our customers.

3. Make Sure That You Can Be Present at the Inspection 

It is beneficial for you, the buyer, to attend the home inspection. The inspector will point out any areas of concern directly to you, and you can ask questions or discuss anything that’s an issue for you. If a home inspector tells you that you cannot be present for the inspection, that would be considered a major red flag. You want someone open, honest, and confident in their inspection abilities.
