Buying a home or investing in property is the largest transaction you're likely to undertake. Not only are you parting with a lot of money, you also probably don't really know how much more money will be required to fix the problems you just can't see.
For peace of mind, a home inspection is essential if you are selling, buying or investing in property, or even if you’re building a new one. Countrywide, houses are being sold and bought every day with various hidden defects. If you are not a building expert, you won’t know what to look for. You’ll probably only focus on the features and obvious signs of things needing repair. But It’s unlikely that you’ll climb into the roof or check for any underlying source causing damage. This is why you need a home inspection.
