Buying a house may seem like an endless series of critical,
important decisions. When you find the house that is right for
you, you need to find a home inspector to educate you about the
condition of your new home. This is a commonplace and a wise
decision, even when buying a newly constructed home; the additional
peace of mind that a professional home inspection offers is invaluable.
Find an Inspector That You Trust
Choosing an ASHI inspector means choosing someone you can trust
to objectively and independently provide you with a comprehensive
analysis of the home’s major systems and components—apart from
anyone's interests other than your own.
