If you are a Realtor, thank you for visiting our site and for considering Home Tech as a Home Inspector for your client. If you've already used us, we hope Home Tech has become your Home Inspector of choice.
Article 1 of the Code of Ethics of the National Association of REALTORs defines your duties and requires you to protect and promote your clients' interests. We hope that, in fulfilling your fiduciary duty to your client, you will recommend the very best inspectors. With that in mind, we invite you to review our site, see what we have to offer, and learn why Home Tech is the best Home Inspector for your client and - by extension - the best Home Inspector for you.
Although no real estate agent can guarantee the thoroughness of any particular inspector, there is a strong correlation between an inspector's fees and his/her competence (in other words, you get what you pay for). Moreover, the best way to avoid negligent referral claims, to operate ethically, and to fulfill your fiduciary duty is to help your client find an inspector based solely on merit. We may not be the least expensive option but we do insist that we offer the very best value for money.
Per My Promise to You on our Home Page, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and pricing. Ultimately, a thorough home inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s own effort. And I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort.
