I'm in need of a home inspector in Pensacola, FL. I've used 2 different guys recently and neither are hitting the mark.
If you are not happy with the service, let them know why. Meet them at the property for the next inspection and let them know what your concerns are. Walk them thru what you expect. I imagine your criteria as an investor vs a home owner is different and i am sure the majority of their business is home owners.
I agree, you need to find an inspector who will appeal to your needs as an investor. I recently spoke to a few here in hopes of getting them to do a walk through with me, no report required, at a discounted rate. This is exactly what I had going in MD and I loved it. Since I was buying as-is I don't need them to spend so much time writing a report, just walk the property with me and we can look together. I found one at the local REIA who will do it but I haven't used him yet. PM me if you want his information.
@Jay Helms - you've likely already got this handled but if you still need a guy call Van Hibberts at SitePro. He does all my inspections for me here in NW Florida. He's a great guy, easy to work with and always does a great job for me.
Best of luck!
