A home is one of the most valued possessions as it is the only place which holds countless beautiful memories. A lot of time and effort goes into choosing the perfect house. However, it is essential to know if the house truly is perfect.

One way to ensure perfection is getting a home inspection to provide you with all the necessary information regarding the actual condition of a house. A great home inspection is possible only with an experienced home inspector. While a home inspection may briefly delay your purchase and marginally increase your costs, it is an investment worth making.

To help you find a reliable, qualified professional who will help you make an informed home-buying decision, here is a list of the top five things that you should look for when hiring a home inspector.

1. Years of industry experience.

Practice really does make one perfect and a home inspector who has been in their field for at least a couple of years will be thorough and confident in their work. Experience is vital while hiring a home inspector as you can be sure that the inspection will be carried out in a detailed and methodical manner.

2. Previous education and ongoing training.

Education provides the necessary tools to help a person perform the best in their line of work. It is therefore crucial that a home inspector is well educated to carry out their work efficiently. Besides being educated, it's important that the home inspector receives ongoing training which will keep them current in their field.

3. Additional industry related certification.

An educated and experienced home inspector holding additional industry-related certification would only prove that they are most suitable for the job as it assures you that they have both, the education and skill required in their industry.

4. Previous customer references.

It is always a great idea to speak with the home inspector’s previous clients to get an idea of his/her work ethic. If most of the reviews regarding the home inspector are positive, then you can feel comfortable and confident signing a home inspection contract with him/her.

5. Industry awards.

Home inspectors that have received an award(s) in their field of work speak for itself. You can be sure that these home inspectors are continually striving towards client satisfaction and really, what could be more reassuring than that?
