A proper home inspection is performed by a professional certified with an organization such as the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI). It is a little more expensive, but the higher home inspection cost reflects the training, education, skills, and equipment that is necessary to assess the condition of a home.
Unfortunately, there are real estate agents out there who will do anything to close a sale. This includes recommending what are known as “patty-cake” inspectors to conduct the pre-purchase inspection. These “inspectors” will not thoroughly inspect the home to avoid uncovering defects or damage that may hurt the sale.
Home buyers and sellers are advised to look past the inspector rates and consider the experience, certifications and equipment used. Find a fully qualified Toronto Home Inspector or Mississauga Home Inspector today.
