Hi Mathew, your Real Estate person should have a list of inspectors. Don't take this step lightly. Is the house bank owned or a short sale, and being bought 'as is?' Have you consulted your mortgage person about what would cause the bank concerns? Are you, or your RE agent prepared to negotiate repairs that might need to be made? If the house has major issues then, be prepared to walk away and start the whole search process again and you are out the $300-400. You can go tohttp:// http://www.ma.gov to do a search of licenced inspectors. Ask if the seller has filled out a property condition report, which should give you some clues as to how it has been maintained, in addition to your own visual observations. Again you should be relying on the expert advice of your Real Estate professional here.

The best source will be for you to check out on the Commonwealth of Massachusetts http://www.ma.gov website the many licensed home inspectors in our area - also on this site you will find many of the questions, concerns and suggestions for consumers purchasing a home. Choose three in your area, do not be afraid to ask for references, insurance, websites, costs of the inspections and as to what will be covered in the inspection, is a lead paint inspection included, are they certified to do this, is there an additional charge? for example...also you may need a pest inspection for specific types of loans, check with your mortgage/bank officer to as to what is required for your loan and make sure the home inspector you choose is qualified in that area. Good Luck, Marybeth

Mathew,

I have used Micos at Tiger Home Inspection several times. He will keep you there for 4 hours, but you will be happy with the results.

http://www.ashi.org/ This is the website for the American Society of Home Inspectors. Unbiased, high ethics, and the most highly trained inspectors around. Simply go to the website and hit find an inspector.
