Whether this is your first home or 6th home, the bottom line is, it costs a lot of money to buy a home. Is a home inspection worth it? Yes! Is it worthwhile for you to be present at the inspection? Yes! The price of a home inspection is very minimal compared to the cost of the entire home. If I only find one problem with your home, it?s worth it! If I don?t find any issues, then you have the peace of mind that you are purchasing a very sound home.
