compare inspectors

 It is true.  Not all Inspectors are equal in services and fees.  This is why we have created the following Inspector Comparison Chart.  It is vital that you compare actual services rendered, not just the fees or prices quoted by Inspection Firms. 

Do not be afraid to ask your Inspector questions about the items listed below.  This is the only way you will know if you are hiring a competent Inspector.  We understand how important it is to make informed decisions.  Your Home Inspector plays a vital role in your decision making process.  

Finally, when interviewing an Inspector, DO NOT make your first question "How much do you charge for a Home Inspection?".  Instead, make your first question "What do I get for my money with your Home Inspection?".  This way the Inspector should be able to fill in the blanks below for you and you will know you are getting your money's worth!
