"How to Select a Home Inspector" is a new online video that discusses six key criteria to consider when trying to find a home inspector. Authored by Inspect-It 1st Property Inspection, a corresponding free whitepaper is also available for download from the company's website.
"Choosing a home inspector can be a daunting task, especially for first-time homebuyers," stated Kylene Golubski, Vice President of Business Development at Inspect-It 1st's corporate office. "And even if they've had a home inspection previously, it may have been years ago and our profession has undergone many changes and advancements. Property and home inspectors can have widely varying levels of knowledge and expertise, and deliver all different kinds of home inspection reports. This short video gives consumers insights into these important factors."
The video and whitepaper reviews the following criteria that should be considered when selecting a home inspector:
1. State Certification & Compliance
3. Insurance Coverage
4. Report Format & Delivery
5. Franchise vs. Independent
6. Referrals & Endorsements
"A home is one of life's largest investments and your chosen home inspector should help you make an informed, confident decision," stated Golubski. "The quality of your home inspector can have a direct impact on the long term enjoyment and return on investment you derive from your property and you want to work with a professional who has your best interests in mind."
