Many home buyers aren't sure whether to find their own home inspector or just use the one their real estate agent recommends.
Should you go with the home inspector your realtor recommends, make sure you still do your due diligence to avoid a sub-par experience that could cost thousands.
Here are a few questions to ask before hiring a home inspector:
Are they certified with a national home inspection association?
InterNACHI and ASHI are the 2 largest home inspection organizations in North America. Home inspector associations provide rigorous training and on-going education to ensure their home inspectors are knowledgable.
