Decisions you need to make
"My Realtor has given me the name of another Inspection company and suggested that I call them for my home Inspection.
Do I have to use them or do I have a choice... "
Can I use Buyer's Inspection Service? The answer is yes!
You can choose any professional or certified Home Inspector that you feel confident will complete a thorough Inspection for you. It can be hard trying to decide who will do a good job when you have probably never used a home Inspector before, and have to rely of phone calls for your information. The majority of our referrals come from our past clients.
Many home buyers mistakenly think that because their real estate agent organizes the termite inspection, the appraiser or the surveyor, that they automatically organize the Home Inspection as well.
This is not so....
Because the Home Inspection is such an integral part of the home buying process, most real estate agents will require your input, in fact they would prefer that you decide which Inspector or Inspection company you want to use.
You should be involved in selecting the Home Inspection company that will perform the Inspection of the biggest purchase you will make this year and possibly in your life.
It is your decision, don't short change yourself, be wise, be informed.
After all, the Inspector will be working for you!
If you have already found an Home Inspection company that you are happy to work with.......well done.
Inform your real estate agent about your decision and give them the name of the company. Most real estate agents will be happy that you have organized the Home Inspector without their having to get heavily involved.
The primary reason that real estate agents give out the names of Home Inspection companies is because most purchasers are not familiar with professional, competent knowledgeable and certified Inspection Companies available in the area.
