Getting the property inspected before the purchase is often a good idea because it gives you the power to negotiate the price, ask for repairs, or walk away from the deal altogether. But that’s not all; home inspections are also recommended to homeowners because it identifies problems that may not be visible to the naked human eye, such as water damage, exposure to radon gas, and mold growth.
Here are tips to help you find the right home inspector in Gwinnett Country, Atlanta:
The Inspector Should Have a Good Reputation Online
Because the internet is the most powerful tool known to us, it’s only right to rely on it to find more about a potential hire. You can read reviews online about the kind of services the home inspector provides; however, be sure that the inspector has no control over the reviews to ensure accuracy. Next, check for sample reports displayed on their website to get a rough idea about how well they’re able to report problems with buildings.
The Inspector Shouldn’t Mind Having You Around During the Inspection
Rather than just handing over a report at the end of the session, a home inspection should encourage the idea of the homeowner sticking around from start to finish. They also wouldn’t mind highlighting the problematic regions to you and suggesting methods for fixing them.
The Inspector Should Be Affiliated with a Professional Inspectors Group
A home inspector should be trained to identify problems around the house correctly; for this reason, you should only sign up with home inspectors who have been registered, licensed, and certified with the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI) and/or American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI). It not only guarantees the quality of service but is also an indication of a degree of training and professionalism.
You can also ask them about their experience in the field and certifications to ensure they know what they’re doing. A qualified home inspector also wouldn’t mind providing proof of insurance.
