When I got to the house, I asked my client what process she had gone through to select Brad Albin - Rainier Inspections, Inc. She said - “He is on your list of preferred inspectors.” I said, “I know, but how did you choose him? “Oh,” she said. “That was easy. I just took your list and started calling. The first inspector that answered, that cared about me enough to personally answer the phone - I chose!”
So that is how Brad Albin - Rainier Inspections, Inc. was chosen for this particular job. She had already read the 12 posts I had done about home inspections, so was well versed in what to expect out of the inspection.
One of my criteria for a home inspector to make my preferred list is that they be highly competent. Brad Albin - Rainier Inspections, Inc. actually has a Bachelor of Science in Building Construction from the University of Washington - Seattle.
Another of the criteria I insist on for an inspector to make my preferred list is that they belong to ASHI - which stands for the American Society of Home Inspectors. It has high standards and a code of ethics which Brad Albin - Rainier Inspections, Inc. subscribes to.
I insist that my clients be at the inspection. If there is more than one buyer, I want them both, or all, to be there. I tell my clients to ask lots of questions about everything, because the greatest value from a home inspection is the training on knowing and caring for your new property. Brad Albin - Rainier Inspections, Inc. shines in this regard. Instead of being perturbed at the questions, he takes delight in educating and training the new home owners in the care and maintenance of their new home.
I also insist that an inspector I recommend be thorough. Brad Albin - Rainier Inspections, Inc. went over every part of the house, inside and out, upside and down. At the end, of course, he delivers a comprehensive report of every part of the house.
Here is a short video of Brad Albin - Rainier Inspections, Inc. hard at work, doing a home inspection for one of my clients.
