A home inspection is an excellent tool for you, the home buyer, to help determine not only the condition of the home, but to also help foresee any immediate costs that may go unnoticed without the help of a home inspection.

Q: Why can’t I have someone in my family who is very handy or a contractor, inspect my new home?
A:This is the biggest mistake many potential new homeowners make when purchasing a home. Although the person you are considering may be very skilled, they are not trained or experienced at professional home inspections. Professional home inspection is a unique skill like no other. Professional inspectors get what we call an inspector’s instinct for problems. That instinct takes extensive training and field experience doing inspections to develop.
