Is certified home inspectors a scam?
Filed under: Home Inspection
Posted by: @ 11:34 pm

We think it is. Let’s look at the facts. Any person can contact a school offering this course and for less than $1,000 they can become “CERTIFIED“. So think about this, a person with no experience in any building trade can sign-up, pay the fee, take a few online tests, and become “CERTIFIED“. Your certified inspector could have been someone with a background in fast food or even criminal behavior. This same person is charging an outrageous price for something they really know nothing about. In order to inspect a home you need to understand the codes that relate to the home. How can a person who has never wired a home give you information on electrical? Look at all the systems in your home and ask yourself: “Is the fry guy really the right person to inspect the largest investment most people will make?”
