Are you an Atlanta home buyer looking for a home inspector? Do you know how to choose a home inspector who is qualified and can help you walk through the home-buying process? ProTech Home & Property Inspections, Inc. gives four factors to help you determine whether a home inspector can do the job.
Check into what past customers are saying about the home inspector’s service, professionalism, and so on. You can often look on the home inspector’s website for customer reviews or use outside service-review sources, like Angie’s List. Asking for recommendations from local friends, co-workers, and family members is also a good idea.
Do some research about whether the home inspector is insured and part of professional organizations. Membership in such organizations isn’t a guarantee of quality work, but it does demonstrate some commitment to the industry. Zillow also recommends checking into how long the home inspection company has been in business, which can speak to their success and reputation in your area.
Guarantees & Warranties
Make sure the home inspector gives a written guarantee of the services provided. Better yet, if the home inspector provides a limited-time warranty on services provided, you’ll know that the home inspector takes customer satisfaction seriously.
Written Inspection Report
You can ask to see a sample inspection report before committing to a home inspector. Look for what type of details are provided, the usefulness of the report, photos, and clear verbage. A home inspection report should be helpful to you as the home buyer and give you the evidence you need to make decisions carefully.
Before selecting a home inspector, research at least three different companies. Ask your questions, and be sure to get a written quote from each one. While time is likely limited if you’re in the home-buying process, you also don’t want to choose a home inspector hurriedly based on price alone.
