The success of a home inspection service depends not just on the inspector but also on the home buyer. The home inspector and home buyer must work hand in hand to ensure that the property being considered for purchase will not turn out to be a home improvement nightmare in the future.
Are you buying a home and hiring the service of a home inspector? Here are the things you must do to get the most out of your home inspection:
1. Do your own inspection prior to the official inspection
So that you have a clear idea of what you would like your home inspector to focus on during the official inspection, make time to do your own pre-inspection in the property. Check the light switches, outlets, walls, ceilings, roof, and paint job. Take note of any possible issues. You can ask about them later during the official inspection.
2. Be present during the home inspection
The most important thing to do is to show up on the day of your home inspection. Your home inspector will be checking your home for the first time, so he needs your guidance. He needs you to be there to specify the issues that you would like to examine.
3. Ask questions
Don’t hesitate to ask your home inspector if you have any concerns or when you don’t understand what he is talking about. At Gold Bears, we value customer feedback and opinion and encourage two-way communication between our team and our clients. So don’t be afraid to speak up.
4. Trust your home inspector
You hired your inspector for his technical knowledge about checking the quality of a house inside and out. So it’s important to maintain a reasonable level of trust and respect during the home inspection so that things will go smoothly.
