“As a homebuyer or seller, if you had the “inside scoop” on the home inspection process, wouldn’t that make you feel less anxious? If you’re looking to get into this line of work, this book will help you know what to expect and how to get as much information to further your career as well. Think about it like this: the buyers want you to find everything, the sellers don’t want you to find anything, the realtors don’t want the home inspector to “blow the deal”, and the home inspector, who’s in the middle, has an obligation to do a thorough and professional job and stay neutral. The home buying process is complicated enough, but being prepared, knowing what to ask, knowing what to look for in a home inspector, knowing what everyone’s roles are, that’s the easy part when you have access to the right information. If you’re going to seek advice from someone, make it someone who’s got the extensive background to be off ering such advice. Read more so you can be prepared for this house, your next house, or a future career. • Know about your home inspector • Be prepared as a home buyer • Be prepared as a home seller • Be prepared as a realtor • Be prepared as a contractor • Looking into a home inspector career • Home maintenance tips”
