Just like real estate agents, some inspectors are better than others. Your Realtor should know the best home inspectors in the area and help you choose one that you can depend on to give you the low down on the true state of any home you are interested in buying.

Don’t have a buyers agent yet? Here is a great guide on how to pick a home inspector. Use this advice to make the best choice possible.

Your Realtor can also advise you on any additional inspections that may apply to the home you are looking at, including radon, mold, water, lead paint, etc. These are all potential stumbling blocks that could cause issues in your sale. They are important enough, however, that you will want to be sure there are no problems.
