Websters Dictionary Defines a Gimmick as:
"a method or trick that is used to get people's attention or to sell something"
Recently, many home inspectors have started offering various warranties, memberships in homeowner networks, free stuff, house by-back guarantees etc.
Most, if not all, of these products have little or dubious value to the home inspector's client. It is reminiscent of free toasters many banks offered when you open a checking account.
So why do they offer them? Many times newer or unqualified home inspectors are trying to "set themselves apart" by offering these add-ons.
Don't be fooled. Always ask for the inspectors references. Ask how long they have been in business.
