Basically, a home inspection is meant to detail problems with a house. The three main points of an inspection are:
*Items in need of repair or replacement
*Remaining useful life of major system.
During the home inspection you can ask questions and request the inspector to point out areas of potential trouble and offer maintenance tips. Also, an inspection can take 2-5 hours and cost $300-$500, depending on size.
I would highly recommended having a home inspection because it is money well spent. At the conclusion of the home inspection not only will you have a detailed report, but you will also have gained even more knowledge about your home.
Until next time,
