In Colorado, it is always recommended that the agent refers you to 2-3 inspectors. The agent should be able to tell you what inspector is used a lot and what to look for. Also ask other buyers who they used and if they have any recommendations.

Good luck and be careful in selecting your home inspector.

Thanks and make it a great day.

Home inspectors have different background: general contractors, engineers, etc...
Talk to couple of them, feel them out, ask them to tell you what will they do for you, ask about their background and see whom do you feel comfortable with... Home inspectors are different background: general contractors, engineers, etc...

It is best to look up their state license and make sure it is valid. Also they may be associated with various national home inspector associations, check into those. Finally, check on their years of experience in the business and ask for local referrals.
