“An expert is someone widely recognized as a reliable source of or skill whose faculty for judging or deciding rightly, justly, or wisely is accorded authority and status by their peers or the public in a specific well-distinguished domain.”
More and more property and home investors are being counseled to find an Inspector prior to hiring the realtor. That is because researching an inspector takes time. It used to be the norm to call for an inspector within the 3 to 5 days following an offer on a home or commercial property. An inspection was recommended by a realtor as a condition prior to purchase of a home or building. A good realtor will always recommend and inspection. Three to five days offers little time to learn whether an inspector will do the job you want them to do.
Some inspectors advise that you learn how long an inspector has been in the inspection business. However, the media daily exposes inspectors who have been around for up to 20 years who are not performing thorough inspections. Some of those inspectors claim to have engineering accreditation but do they have hands on building experience affording them reliable, skilled, judgment? Iron View Inspections believes that it isn’t how long you have been in the inspections business that tells the quality of the service. Rather it is more important to learn the following, when researching an inspector. Use the following questions as a checklist to help you select the inspector that’s right for you when you’re building your team of real estate professionals.
- How much experience does the inspector have in the construction industry?
- How much experience has been spent over seeing and inspecting the work of building trades?
- Is the inspector a certified member of an accredited inspections association?
- Can the inspector provide reference for past inspections and proof of registration?
