Cheap Mistakes you don’t need to Make when Hiring a Home Inspector

It can be a tricky task when it comes to hiring a home inspector, especially for those not familiar with what a home inspection should consist of. A common mistake people make is thinking that choosing the cheapest inspector is the best option available to them!

Everyone likes a bargain, no questions asked; however, when it comes to a home inspection, some people tend to grip onto their already depleting savings. They refuse to turn over another large sum of money for yet another service.

The truth is that you need an experienced inspector who is qualified and able to provide an extensive evaluation, and hand you a detailed written report afterwards. That report should answer all your questions about the property. A decent home inspection will cost you extra money, but this is nothing in comparison to the thousands of dollars that you may need to spend in repairs, if you avoid a professional home inspection service.

Research and know whom you are hiring. When hiring your home inspector ask for proof of experience, something indicating they have performed at least 250 home inspections or more, and verify if they are NACHI certified. Central Florida Builders Inspectors is both experienced (over 15,000 inspections performed) and certified by NACHI.

Another common mistake made by people when it comes to buying a home is that they totally ignore the opportunity to hire a home inspector. You can see why people opt to neglect this service as buying a home is a large, costly investment without more bills being added.

When buying or selling a home, please do not ignore the opportunity you have to hire a professional home inspection service. It can help lead you to a happy future in your new home and ease your mind during the sale process.
