I’m not trying to toot my own horn here, but a good home inspector is invaluable. 

Just ask the homeowner or Realtor who discovered significant issues before closing (or not closing). Like any major decision, it’s important to take your time when considering who to hire as your inspector. Furthermore, once you’ve made your decision, take the opportunity to prepare for the inspection.

Along those lines, I’d like to share a handful of articles that I hope will assist you in maximizing the value and effectiveness of your home inspection. Happy reading!
