Home inspections are a key part of the home buying process and choosing the right home inspector will benefit all parties involved. It provides the opportunity to get an evaluation of the true condition of the house being sold.
It’s crucial to find a reputable, experienced, and trustworthy home inspector. With higher customer loyalty survey scores than most recognized consumer brands - it’s no wonder savvy home buyers and top real estate professionals throughout the US and Canada rely on HouseMaster for their home inspection needs.
Both buyers and sellers need a home inspector for several reasons. When buying a new home, a home inspector can find issues that need to be disclosed before making the decision to buy. When selling a home, a home inspector can alert you to issues that should be fixed before the home hits the market and buyers try to negotiate a lower price to accommodate the repairs.

What to Look for When Choosing Local Home Inspectors
The number of years a home inspector has been in business can determine their authority on home inspection services and procedures. Although experience isn’t the end all be all, it can give you a better idea of their scope of knowledge.
Certifications and Licenses
Having certifications and licenses means the home inspector went through the proper training to perform an evaluation of your home. Scott and Dan are proud member inspectors of the American Society of Home Inspector (ASHI), The international Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI), The Greater Harrisburg Association of REALTORS® (GHAR), members of PRE Linglestown and have been certified as professional home inspectors via the NHIE.
