Do I need a home inspection?
Having a realtor that is representing you through the home buying process, they are going to recommend any and all inspections. This is to look out for your best interests in this transaction. What a home inspector is doing is checking from the basement up to the roof, looking to see any safety and maintenance concerns that the home may have. When we’re going through looking at properties before we have made any offers we’re envisioning different things, maybe looking at where furniture may go. We may not be paying attention to those things that home inspectors have more of an objective view at. I highly recommend that you have a home inspection during your home purchase.
