What Is A Home Inspection?
During a home inspection, a real estate professional called a "home inspector" takes a look around your property. They look for any potential problems with the home that you might need to deal with later. As the buyer, you’re free to attend the home inspection. After the inspector finishes touring the property, they write a report that details everything they find during the visit.
No home is perfect. Your inspection results give you a closer look at the real condition of your property. No one wants to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on a home just to find that it has irreparable structural issues. Be sure to schedule your home inspection before you close on your loan. This leaves time to contact the seller and adjust the sale if the inspection reveals major issues.
