One of the most important steps in your home buying process is to have a home inspection. So what can you do to make this crucial step easier? Hire the right home inspector.

To make sure you hire the right professional, make sure to work with someone who’s a member of ASHI. Members of ASHI (the American Society of Home Inspectors) subscribe to a high standard.

Also, you should inspect what you expect. If you suspect your roof is not in sound condition, get a roofing contractor to verify that for you. Do not just leave
