You’re in the process of buying a home in Maryland, and you want to make sure you hire a home inspector you can trust. But just what separates a good home inspector from the rest? We at ProTec Inspection Services have found that these three qualities tend to indicate a quality home inspector.
1. Good communicator
How well does the home inspector communicate with you? Are emails and phone calls returned in an efficient manner? Do you feel like your questions are answered thoroughly? You want to pay attention to how a home inspector communicates, because it can be an indicator of how thoroughly he or she will complete your inspection report.
2. Positive customer reviews
What are past customers saying about the home inspection company? Are reviews primarily positive, or do the number of negative reviews make you nervous? While you will always find naysayers, you want to make sure the majority of customer feedback is positive.
3. Years of service
We don’t want to penalize home inspectors who are new to the Maryland home inspection business. However, there’s something to be said about a home inspector who has served the area for a number of years. Years of service can indicate quality performance, reliable service, and good business practices.
