Why It's Important to Find a Qualified Home Inspector

It’s crucial to use a trustworthy and qualified home inspector because a home purchase is one the biggest investments people make. In hot markets, like San Francisco, California, home buying can be especially stressful. Finding a reliable home inspector can help make this process easier. 

Home inspectors in California are not required to have a special license to perform inspections. This makes it even more important to find an inspector who is willing to go the extra mile to get certified through an organization. 

Many Californian home inspectors adopt a specific Standard of Practice set forth by associations such as InterNACHI when inspecting homes in California.  

San Francisco Real Estate Market

During 2019, the San Francisco real estate market saw an almost 11% upward trend year over year in median listed home prices. Because of this it was a strong seller’s market meaning the demand for homes was much higher than the supply. Home prices took a hit in value during the first months of 2020 due to the effects of COVID-19, but are expected to remain above the national average.  

What This Means for Your Home Inspection

Home inspections are as important as ever, but will provide little negotiation power due to maintained demand of homes. This means that your home inspection report will mostly be used as a tool to maintain the health of your home. 

If your home inspection shows no major issues, you should most likely act fast because more offers could be coming!
