Selecting A Home Inspection Service

Choosing The Right Home Inspector For You


Bergen County NJ Home InspectionsMost homeowners will need a home inspector at some time in the future. If you live in Bergen County New Jersey you’ll be aware that there are numerous home inspection firms. This makes it difficult to make the right choice. We’d like to offer a few essential guidelines for choosing the most professional and competent home inspector.  We feel these will help in selecting a home inspection service.


Seek Referrals


It is prudent to seek recommendations from your trusted friends or co-workers, relatives, or perhaps your realtor if you are in the process of buying or selling a home. If they have had need of a home inspector’s services in the past, they might have some insights to share. Always use good judgement in evaluating anyone’s referral.


Look For An Inspector’s Qualifications and Memberships


Other ways to judge whether an inspector is the right one for you is to verify their education in the field, and their memberships in inspection industry associations. An inspector usually has to take an exam to join an association, and provide a state license in some cases. Many home inspectors take courses in various forms of inspection and over time become very knowledgeable and up-to-date. Experience and length of time in the business of inspecting homes is also a factor in helping choose a home inspector.


Always Do Your Homework And Ask Questions


A really good way to judge a home inspector is to ask direct questions. Some states require a license for which the inspector had to qualify. This helps verify that they have the qualifications for the job. Ask about the services offered, and for a checklist that they can go over with you. Inquire about the fee for the inspection service and what is covered by that fee. Some inspectors require additional fees for anything not on that checklist. Don’t let cost be your only guide, but of course you should compare prices. Make certain that you get a copy of the inspection report for your records. Ask if there are any warranties with the inspection report.  All of these suggestions are offered to help you in selecting a home inspection service.
