Although, not mandatory, I do highly advice on having the inspection completed! A home inspection is something that protects your financial interest in what will likely be the largest purchase you make in your life – one in which you need as much information as possible. It is better to pay $400 – $500 for a report you don’t need, than to skip it and pay $3,000 plus for a new roof within a year of buying your new home.
Additionally, considering the health and safety of you and your family is important. Home inspections can uncover potentially hazardous items in a home – such as pests, bad wiring, unsafe heating or cooling equipment, or even structural issues. These are things that the average person won’t likely notice with a quick look around.
