Normally, the top inspectors aren't the cheapest. If you would like to spend less, maybe tens of thousands, then do not opt for the lowest-priced inspector. You can get the best experience and service available through the home inspector.
Make sure you ask if the home inspector abides by a set of standards of practices and code of ethics that require professionalism and attention to detail set forth by National Home Inspection Associations. They should also have a current list of referrals is available on request.
Every reputable home inspector should be able to provide you with a standard Home Inspection Agreement.
It should be signed and brought to the property on the day of the inspection. If you will not attend the inspection, your agent will need to bring the agreement and payment for the inspector.
The Inspector should also provide you with inspection standards of practice. This will better inform you of the details involved in the inspection.
It should detail what the inspector will and will not report on. Most inspectors will not inspect the sprinkler and irrigation systems, solar electrical systems, and out buildings small ponds.
