Should I order a home inspection?

Yes! If you want to use an FHA or VA loan to pay for your home, you must have a home inspection. Inspections are not necessary for other mortgage programs. However, because they can uncover hidden flaws in the house, home inspections are strongly advised. One of the biggest investments of a lifetime is made more secure by home inspections.

Home inspections are essentially a visual check of the critical components of a home: the foundation, the electrical, plumbing, and heating systems. The inspector takes the time to complete a thorough examination of these components. Upon completion, you will be provided with a report that should help you make an educated decision about your home purchase.

Home inspections can be expensive, but they are well worth the money. Not only do you discover important information about the condition of your home, but the inspection can also reveal safety concerns that could affect you and your family for years to come. Determining the severity of these issues then allows you to negotiate a fair price for the home or allow you enough time to back out of the purchase altogether. 

THE BOTTOM LINE

Home inspections are just one small piece of the puzzle. But at the end of the day, they are an important factor to consider when you’re buying a home.
