5 Tips to Help You Find a Home Inspector You Can Trust


5 Tips to Help You Find a Home Inspector You Can Trust In Missouri, there are no licensing requirements for Home Inspectors, and unfortunately, Home Inspectors are the only party in a real estate transaction who are not regulated.Without a state licensing program, virtually anyone can claim to be a home inspector. There are no minimum standards, no regulations, no background checks, no baseline for what an inspector is responsible for and no discipline for violating state standards. To help protect you, here are 5 things to look for when hiring a Home Inspector.

5 Tips To Help You Find the Right Home Inspector

The Walk-Through: Choose a home inspector that wants you to be at the inspection.  My Home Inspector Pro wants you to come to the home inspection so we can walk you through the home and go over what we’ve found, educate you about the home and its systems, and leave time for you to ask questions to better understand any problems that may be present.Online Reviews: Reading online reviews from Google, Yelp and Facebook allows you to get honest feedback that the home inspector does not control. My Home Inspector Pro Springfield, MO has many online reviews.Experience and Certifications: Ask questions about their experience and certifications. Questions like “How long has the inspector been in business? Have they taken specialized courses?  Do they have experience in home building or have they been a contractor?” This allows you to know more about the home inspector to make sure they are qualified.National Certification: Ask if the inspector is a member of ASHI, NAHI, or InterNACHI. Unlike the State of Missouri who has no licensing requirements for Home Inspectors, these National Organizations require testing and certifications to become a member. They also require continuing education to renew their certification. My Home Inspector Pro of Southwest Missouri is a member of InterNACHI https://www.nachi.org/code_of_ethics.htm  and is also certified to test for mold, Termites, and Commercial Properties. Licensed in the State of Missouri to perform Septic and Well Inspections (On-Site Inspections).The Inspection Report: Ask for a sample report. This will let you know how thorough and concise their inspection report is. Does it clearly identify safety items, items that are reaching the end of their useful life, and items needing repair?  Also, make sure photos of these items are included for easy identification.
