Buying a home could be the largest single investment you will ever make. Homebuyers should learn as much as they can about the house before buying it to minimize unpleasant surprises and unexpected difficulties.
A home inspection may identify the need for major repairs or builder oversights, as well as the need for maintenance to keep it in good shape. Through the home inspection process, homebuyers will have a better understanding of their prospective house, which will allow them to make decisions with confidence.
If a homeowner is planning to sell their home, a home inspection can allow them to make repairs that will put the house in better selling condition.
