Who or What is a Home Inspector?

Most states, including the State of Washington, don't license the service of home inspections. As such, home inspections may be performed by anyone with a business license.

There are many home inspection training schools and trade associations but too many of those are businesses who's primary purpose is to make money from the training and certification of home inspectors. Many of these businesses and associations concentrate their efforts in marketing their services to people who want to enter the home inspection trades.

Experience and reputation are the keys to finding a good inspector.
