Buying a home is probably the most expensive purchase you will ever make. This is no time to shop for a cheap inspection. The cost of ahome inspection is very small relative to the purchase price of the home. The additional cost of hiring a certified inspector is practically insignificant. As a homebuyer, you have recently been crunching the numbers, negotiating offers, adding up closing costs, shopping for mortgages and trying to get the best deals. Do not stop now. Do not let your real estate agent, an unqualified inspector or anyone else talk you into skimping here.
Many homebuyers (particularly first timers) and even some real estate agents don’t understand the true purpose of a home inspection and how to choose a good inspector. Remember, a home inspection is usually not required. So, if you aren’t going to hire the most qualified, then save your money and don’t get one at all. Price shopping IS A HUGE MISTAKE because you’re not comparing “apples to apples”. You must ask for qualifications, experience, certifications and references.
