A home inspector is a person who inspects your house with his/her knowledge and experience, which eventually leads you to make your buying decision. An inspector could be a Civil/Mechanical/Electrical Engineer, construction worker or another building tradesperson.
Good Home Inspector
A good home inspector is a person who has done a home inspection certification from authorized organization, institute or college and gone through a rigorous training or on-site mentoring. Experience and communication skills always matter. He/she should have a good understanding of how structures work and how one component of the house affects other components and systems.
A good home inspector should inspect your property thoroughly and provide you with quality information, which helps you to make a wise, informed decision. Still, he/she should never tell you to buy the property or not.
A good inspector should be knowledgeable, detective/investigative, well organized, polite, a great communicator who enjoys people.
A good home inspector should also be a member of a well-established and recognized organization in good standing and must hold a general liability and EO insurance.
