A.I.M. For Real - Month 3 - Blog Banner.jpg

Almost every home buyer wants their next home to be in good condition. The problem is that it can be very difficult for the untrained eye to thoroughly inspect a home for any potential underlying issues that may be present. This is why it is important to hire a professional to come and properly inspect and evaluate your property. A professional home inspector will do a proper examination of a house's physical structure and systems from the roof to the foundation. 

To help you find a reliable and qualified professional that will help you make an informed decision regarding buying your home, here's a list of the top five things to look for in a home inspection company. 

1. Experience
Everyone has to start somewhere, but hiring a first-time home inspector might not be the best idea and could lead to a job not thoroughly done. It makes sense to work with a home inspection company that has been around for some time and has worked with multiple clients on projects similar to yours. Before hiring an inspector, ask what exactly they'll do. If they have been in the industry for a while, you know that they will have credible connections to the right people and places. This ensures that you will get your information from a reliable source. 

2. Professionalism
As the buyer, you want to ensure that your home inspector is a professional who isn't biased or affiliated with the real estate agent trying to sell the house. They must be brutally honest with you so that you know the exact condition of the property. To make sure your home inspector is objective, ethical, and honest, take the time to speak with several inspectors. Hire one only when you are confident in their skills, professionalism, and demeanor. 

3. Education in the profession
The home inspector you wish to hire must be well educated to carry out their work efficiently. A certified home inspector has gone through rigorous technical training and examinations to get where they are. Additionally, they are also required to follow a strict code of ethics when performing the inspection. Proper education provides them with the necessary tools to perform the best in their line of work. An educated home inspector will leave no stone unturned and uphold the best home inspection practices.

4. Knowledge of industry trends
Besides being educated, it is also important that the home inspector receives ongoing training to keep them current in their field. This includes learning about and using state of the art equipment for conducting home inspections and having an efficient means of communication with the client. Technological advancement is one of the driving factors in the home inspection industry. Taking advantage of modern practices and equipment helps speed up the home inspection process and provide better quality output. 

5. Helps the community
Today, customers have more choices than ever, and much of the time, they aren't limited to what's within their physical location. A company's ethics and community involvement are beginning to become important factors in determining which brand a consumer chooses. Integration into the community helps a company generate goodwill towards their brand. While we are really passionate about what we do at A.I.M.
