I started to do a post about the PHYSICAL tools that I use on a typical inspection, because let’s face it those are important. However, it got me thinking…There are MANY other tools I use on a daily basis that are just as CRITICAL. A great inspector will work to incorporate all of these tools at the inspection. A home is a BIG financial and emotional purchase for the buyers, so make sure you are using empathy to recognize. Being quick to change schedules and adjust between the many pieces and people involved in the sale of a home is also critical. Clarity of clearly articulating findings and recommendations to clients while using language that is easy to understand. Actively listening to the client’s concerns and questions. And you might have all guessed having a great sense of attention to detail to observe and be thorough on an inspection is CRUCIAL.
