Choosing a Home Inspector
Homebuyers should carefully consider the basis of selecting a home inspector. If selected based on price the homebuyer may risk utilizing an inspector who isn’t qualified to find all the defects. Dan Flagg, founder of Pinpoint Professional Services, has taught home inspections at Bailey Academy of Real Estate. He is a certified inspector with ASHI, the American Society of Home Inspectors, which is the oldest and largest of the home inspection organizations. Building Code Certification (ICC, CABO) is another certification which Mr. Flagg possesses. This certification is important for both resale homes and new construction homes. Additionally Mr. Flagg possesses a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Georgia Tech. Pinpoint Professional Services utilizes AHIT inspection software which generates the most concise and easy to read inspection reports, with photos, in the industry. The reports adhere to ASHI’s Standards of Practice which can be viewed at www.ashi.org.
Pinpoint Professional Services was founded in 2001 and has performed over 1000 inspections.
