Not all home inspectors are alike. Selecting a home inspector based on price alone can end up being a costly mistake. There are a lot of inspectors out there who just meet the minimum criteria to be a Washington Home Inspector. You should take some time and interview a few inspectors before deciding who you will hire to look for potential defects in one of the largest purchases you will ever make. The cost of even the most expensive home inspection is minute in relation to the purchase price of your home. You should be hiring an inspector who is qualified to provide you with the best service possible. That typically means not going with the cheapest guy/gal in town. Low-ball pricing usually means one of two things. Either the inspector is brand new to the industry and has to have low pricing in order to get his/her foot in the door, or, the inspector is doing several (4-6) inspections per day to justify those low prices. Do you really want to be one of several other rushed inspections that day?
