I would recommend you be present during the home inspection. We learned a ton about our house when we had the inspection. It also gives you the opportunity to ask questions and make sure you understand what the inspector finds. I don't know anything about the inspector you listed.

I strongly recommend attending as it gives inspectors an opportunity to put your eyes on the problems. Also, many inspectors provide an educational component at the inspection that may be to your benefit.

I would also suggest you be there for the same reasons as posted above. The inspection could take anywhere from 2.5 to 4 hours so if you can't be there the entire time, you could try to be there for the last hour.

I agree with everyone; BE THERE!! It's like your owner's manual for the house, since there isn't really one. Again, don't know anything about the company. We recently (this month) had our home inspection and use A-1 Home Inspections. Sacredgrooves on here is a part of that business; it is family owned and WONDERFUL!! We couldn't be happier with their services!!!

I would recommend that you not only use a Licensed Home Inspector but use an Inspector that holds a General Contractors License as well.
