Are you currently in the process of buying a new home in Northern Colorado? Congratulations! This is one of the most exciting (and the biggest) purchases you will make in your lifetime. How can you make sure that you are making a smart purchase? By getting a home inspection, of course! Your home inspection is your number one tool in making a wise decision, but first you need to know that you have found a reliable home inspector. That is why we have come up with this list of what to discuss with your home inspector:
- Many inspectors will say that they have great references and credentials, but not all of them will with provide you with proof. That is why you should make sure that you ask for a bio, credentials, testimonials, etc.
- Ask how long the inspection will take. If your inspector tells you that it will only take 45 minutes, then you should turn and run the other way! A thorough home inspection will usually take around 3 to 4 hours.
- Ask if they offer a guarantee. Although inspectors aren’t able to predict the future, a good inspector will be willing to stand behind their inspection!
- Make sure that they are willing to answer any questions that come up after your inspection. There is a lot of information to process during your inspection, and it is not uncommon to have questions later on. Ensure that your inspector is willing to answer those questions that may come up.
A good home inspector is your main defense against making a poor investment. Discuss each of the above topics with your future inspector, so that you can make sure that you have found a good one. Contact us for your home inspection today!
