Should Buyers Have a Home Inspection?

Should Buyers have a Home Inspection for the home they are purchasing?

The short answer is YES.

The longer answer is WHY.


Buying a home is likely one of the most significant investments you’ll ever make. You want to make sure it’s a good one. A home inspection can help with this. The inspection can reveal home defects that you would otherwise remain unaware of until after you move into the property. Then, it’s too late. By using a home inspection to discover issues up front, you can either walk away from a potential money pit or negotiate with the sellers to make the repairs or for the price of repairs to come off the purchase price.

Considering the amount of money and time you’ll be pouring into your home, a little extra of both up front are well worth your while. And if the inspection reveals no concerns? That’s great too. You can then have peace of mind knowing you are buying a property with no hidden issues. It’s a win-win.
