Do not be a price shopper
Do not let price be the only consideration
when shopping for a Home Inspector. There are some basic economic principles
written by John Ruskin in the 1800's that still apply today.
- There is hardly anything in the world
that someone cannot do a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and the
people who consider price alone are that person's lawful prey.
- It's unwise to pay to much, but it is
also unwise to pay to little.
- When you pay to much you lose a little
money, that is all.
- When you pay to little, you sometimes
lose everything because the thing you bought is incapable of doing the
thing you bought it to do.
These are the Important questions to ask before hiring your home inspector

him and ask questions during the inspection?

home inspection report so you can review the inspectors work?
