Things YOU Should Look For in a Home Inspector | Home Inspection Checklist
Whether you are selling a home or buying a home, you need to have the home inspected. Your home inspection checklist should start with researching industry organizations and trade groups that a good inspector would be a member of. An inspector should be certified and licensed and have a good background in home inspection education. Aurora Home Inspections’ qualifications page is lengthy and includes everything needed for a comprehensive home inspection checklist.
You should also look for a home inspector located near you. A local inspector will be familiar with regulations and standards in equipment and construction for your area. Although cost should never be the only consideration, travel time can add to the expense of the inspection.
A buyer may think a newly built house doesn’t need to be inspected. Just because it is up to code doesn’t mean it shouldn’t have a thorough going over by a qualified inspector.
It is essential to be present during an inspection. Written reports are important, but some things need to be seen in order to understand the problem. Whether it is major or minor, your inspector can alert you to a problem right away if you are there.
