The easiest part of arranging for a home inspection is contacting the inspection company. Once you have scheduled your inspection, the inspection company will contact the necessary parties to coordinate the inspection with them.
Contact the inspection company to schedule your inspection as soon as possible after acceptance of your offer to purchase the home in order to give both you and your inspector maximum flexibility in scheduling. During periods of heavy real estate activity, it is not unusual for inspection companies such as ours to be “booked up” as far as seven days in advance. Once you have agreed on the appointed inspection date and time, it is imperative that you honor your commitment to your appointment. After all, by making your appointment, your inspector has committed that valuable time period to you and, in busy times, it may not be possible to reschedule your inspection.
