Just like you’d want to know a little bit about a doctor who diagnoses you or a pastor who marries you, it’s a smart idea to know some info about a home inspector you choose to inspect a house you just might call home.
The best inspectors have a construction background and a soft, patient attitude with the buyer. A good inspector doesn’t scare or overload the buyer with too fine details or code details. The best inspectors are pragmatic about the age and condition of a home, walk the buyer through the home and tell them the truth, rather than overwhelm them with code. A good inspector takes his or her time, and slowly walks the buyer through the home and teaches them about the nuances of the property they’re thinking about buying.
Experience is vital when selecting a home inspector, and in Texas, inspectors are required to take education courses, though nothing trumps experience.
