America’s #1 real estate expert, Robert Irwin’s, has written that he personally prefers to use an InterNACHI inspector in his book Tips & Traps When Buying A Home.
Quoting from page 200:
“Where Do You Find a Home Inspector?Ask your real estate agent. Usually active agents know of one they can recommend. However, also be wary. Although it seldom happens, it might be that an agent recommends a particular inspector mainly because he or she has a track record of going easy on the property, thereby helping to make the deal go through.
Look on the internet. There are several national organizations that can recommend inspectors. My personal favorite is www.nachi.org (International Association of Certified Home Inspectors).”
