6 QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD ASK
ANSWERS THAT REALLY MATTER
- 1. Does your inspector carry two state licenses?
- 2. Does your inspector carry proper insurance?
- 3. Was your inspector trained at a top home inspection school?
- 4. Does your inspector have the proper tools?
- 5. Is your inspector a member of ASHI?
- 6. What level of customer service can I expect to receive?
In the State of Washington, a good inspector will be a state-licensed home inspector. Your inspector should have a home inspection license from the Department of Licensing and should also have a Structural Pest Inspector license from the Department of Agriculture. MOVE SMART HOME INSPECTORS CARRY THE TWO STATE LICENSES.
In 2009, the State of Washington decided home inspectors were not required to carry insurance. There are several types of insurance an inspector can carry. Make sure they carry both errors and omissions insurance as well as business liability insurance. WITH MOVE SMART HOME INSPECTIONS YOU CAN FEEL GREAT KNOWING THAT WE CARRY BOTH OF THESE INSURANCES. Want to learn more about these types of insurance?
The State of Washington had allowed older inspectors who had been doing paid inspections already, but who had not graduated from home inspector schools, to get a state license. They were “grandfathered” in. AT MOVE SMART WE HAVE NEVER HIRED, AND NEVER WILL HIRE, AN INSPECTOR WHO HAS NOT GRADUATED FROM ONE OF THE TOP HOME INSPECTOR SCHOOLS IN THE NATION.
We’ve been told by clients “I work in construction, or a similar field, I should do this inspection.” We then asked if they owned a good moisture meter, infrared thermometer, gas meter, infrared camera, etc. Of course, these tools are too specialized to be owned by the average person, so the answer would always be no. The best tools by far an inspector owns are his brain and his eyes. This will always be true. WHEN YOU HIRE AN EXPERIENCED INSPECTOR, LIKE HERE AT MOVE SMART HOME INSPECTIONS, YOU ARE HIRING HIS COMBINED SCHOOL TRAINING, EXPERIENCE, AND THE OPINIONS HE CREATES BASED ON THOSE THINGS. BUT, YOU ARE ALSO HIRING SOMEONE WHO HAS THE TOOLS THAT CAN FIND PROBLEMS THAT ARE NOT APPARENT TO THE NAKED EYE.
The American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), founded in 1976, is North America’s oldest and most respected professional society of home inspectors. ASHI’s goals have always been to build customer awareness of the importance of a quality home inspection and enhance the professionalism of home inspectors. ASHI is the oldest, and still the most stringent, home inspector association in the world. We recommend that you only use ASHI member home inspectors. HERE AT MOVE SMART, WE ARE A MEMBER OF THE AMERICAN SOCIETY OF HOME INSPECTORS. ASHI member inspectors follow rigorous Standards of Practice and must take continuing education classes each year to maintain their proficiency and to keep updating their knowledge about homes and the home inspection industry.
