Choose reputation over cost when hiring a NJ home inspector. Saving a few dollars up front could cost you thousands down the road. Having experience and knowledge on your side is important, as is local knowledge of commonly seen environmental concerns. Whether you are inspecting your home as part of a real estate transaction or for peace of mind, choosing your inspector wisely is of the essence.
You could hire anyone for a NJ home inspection, but just because someone has building experience does not mean they know what to look for in every system and part of your home. Here are some great questions to ask prior to hiring your home inspector:
- Is the inspector in question licensed by the State of New Jersey?
- Does the inspector have a prepared report and checklist?
- Is the checklist in line with the State mandates?
- Is the inspector affiliated with any professional organizations? NJ NACHI, American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), Better Business Bureau (BBB)?
A real estate company with a solid reputation can be a great place to start in your search for a New Jersey home inspector. A solid reputation is worth more than a cheap inspection. This is one case where you get what you pay for.
