Choosing the right home inspector is as important as choosing the right home.

Buying a home? It is probably the most expensive purchase you will ever make. This is no time to shop for a cheap inspection. The cost of a home inspection is very small relative to the cost of the home being inspected. The additional cost of hiring a NACHI certified inspector is almost insignificant.

You have recently been crunching the numbers, negotiating offers, adding up closing costs, shopping for mortgages and trying to get the best deals. Do not stop now. Do not let anyone talk you into skimping here. NACHI certified inspectors perform the best inspections by far.

NACHI certified inspectors earn their fees many times over. They do more, they deserve more and, yes, they generally charge a little more. Do yourself a favor…and pay a little more for the quality inspection you deserve.
