What is a Home Inspection? Is it Required?

If you are house hunting, you may have heard the term “home inspection”. Spending a little money for a home inspection could save you a lot of money down the road!

Is it required? No, but it could save you money in the long run.

Think of it like a test drive of a car you are considering buying. Most people would not purchase a car based on appearance alone. Don’t you want to take a look under the hood and give it a spin first?

Not a bad idea to do the same for a home you are putting an offer in on. It’s one of (if not the) biggest purchase you’ll ever make.

Unlike an appraisal, you select the inspector you want to hire! I can recommend someone if you are not sure who to hire.
