  • Home Inspections

    So when you bought your home did you get one of these done. I ask this because my friend is buying their first home and have chose to get one. I personally think that it only protects you in the end. How do you all feel about this? Would you buy a house without getting one?

    Absolutely not. And most mortgage companies demand you have one. There's no other way, unless you're a pro, to learn about possible problems with a house. Things like settling, wiring, etc. It is the best money spent during the process!

      I do agree with you on this 100%. I didn't know that mortgage company required it though. I thought you could sign something stating you didn't want one. I would never do that though even if you could.

        I think that it is the only way to go. It saves you alot of money in the end. There are so many hidden things that you can't see when looking at a house. A house inspecter can find these and let you know before you buy.

          I worry about things like structural issues along with dry rot mostly. Even though I've bought and sold a few homes, I still wouldn't trust my own knowledge because you get passionate about liking a house and sometimes overlook the negatives. A good inspector can snap you right out of that! LOL
