Got a good home inspector for Maryland?

4 Replies

Does anybody have a recommended home inspector that'll work in the Laurel, Maryland / Howard County area (North of Washington D.C. 20 minutes).

I've searched old forums and haven't seen any suggestions for this area.

I'll also need a termite inspection - I was planning on just calling Terminix. Is that a decent plan?

UPDATE:

Outside of BP, I was referred to Sandy Spring Inspection Services.  They did a great job and were very knowledgeable.  After looking at the house, he saved me $300 bucks by recommending against a his chimney inspection (his visual convinced him there were no problems) and his radon inspection (he recommended I just buy my own kit).  

I'd recommend them.

This thread is a bit old....but I highly recommend Hollis Brown (http://www.hollis-brown.com/) for inspections in the DC Metro area.  He is a little more expensive than most inspectors....but Ive just found most home inspectors to be terrible.  

Although if you are going to be a serious investor...over time as you learn, there is very little information a home inspector will give you that you wont already know.
