Where to find the right Home Inspector

What quality of work to look for in the best home inspector?

What quality of work to look for in the best home inspector?

Home inspection represents a key piece of the home-buying process. A home inspector provides an expert eye that gives an invaluable assessment of the biggest investment a buyer will make.

The best home inspector can ease the process and make sure there’s no surprises. A bad home inspector can jeopardize a sale, hurting both sides of the real estate equation.

Here are a few ways to protect yourself against an unqualified home inspector.

1. A lot of information about inspections aims at buyers, but they can help sellers. You may even want to invest in an inspection before you put the home on the market, so you can fix potential issues, adjust the price point, or know what to expect at the negotiating table. Remember to prep as much as you can to make the inspector’s job easier.

2. When hiring a home inspector, make sure the person doing the inspection is recommended by a reliable source. You can consult the Better Business Bureau in your municipality or the Ontario Association of Home Inspectors to find a professional home inspector in your area. Ask friends and relatives who recently bought for recommendations. Your real estate agent might have someone they trust as well.
