Here’s a few tips for geting the right home inspector

You want to know everything that you can about the home you’re buying. From roof to basement floor, outside walls to inside electrical system it’s important to know what to look for and where the issues might arise. Getting a good home inspector is just as important as finding the right Islamic loans .

A good home inspector needs to have the right licenses and credentials, and you should ask about those, but there’s more to getting the right one than just asking to see where their accreditation comes from. They might have gone to a very good school but only had the minimum of training. So, here’s a home inspectorfew of the other items you should be looking for:

  • An association with a professional organization. Make sure you weed out the groups that are fly-by-night and might even just ask for a small membership fee. Only deal with home inspectors that are associated with reputable names like The American Society of Home Inspectors and the like.
  • Transparency. In some ways, the process here is the same as when you were looking for Islamic finance. Asking the tough questions should get immediate responses. Hesitation is a sign that the home inspector isn’t everything he or she says she is.

Finally, don’t just take your real estate agent’s word. It’s best to get the names of five home inspectors before you make any decisions.
