When you buy a home, you need to know exactly what you're buying. Imagine how frustrated you'd be to find out that the hot water heater wasn't working-in the middle of a shower! This is why you should have a home inspection before you buy your home. A home inspection is an important part of buying your home. Before you hire a home inspector, ask candidates a few questions to make sure you hire a trustworthy inspector.
What does your inspection cover? Not all inspections are the same. Ask for copies of previoushome inspectionsso you can see exactly what they will check inside the [city] home. If you are concerned about something specific, like a leaky faucet in the bathroom, mention that to the inspector so they can check it out.
Are you licensed or certified? If you live in a state that licenses home inspectors, ask to see their license. At the very least, choose a home inspector who belongs toAmerican Society of Home Inspectors. This shows a level of professionalism and education that you can trust.
What kind of report will you give me? You should expect a written report detailing what the inspector found. Most inspectors will give you a typed report within a week of the inspection. Make sure the inspector will be available to explain anything on the report that doesn't make sense to you.
Will I be able to attend the inspection? If the inspector refuses to let you be present during the home inspection, find someone else. This is your chance to know exactly what you are buying and what potentialrepairsyou or the seller will have to make.

"Gabrielle was very professional. She did not rush and or pressure us into making any decisions, when we made up our mind she gave us unbiased information to consider and had us look at the property on multiple occasions. She was knowledgeable on all aspects of the market, this allowed us to get a great deal, she fought for us and we were able to get the seller to throw in a few bonus items. We are happy we went with Gabrielle and we will definitely use her again."
