Home inspections are a very important part of the home buying process!
Inspections and appraisals are different because while an appraisal gives the current value of a home, an inspection will give you the current condition of the home.
This is when you find out all of the defects and things that need repair. It's also a really good "get to know you" session with your potential new home. Most inspectors will show you where the emergency water shut off is, clean outs are etc.
Getting an inspection is necessary because costly issues could arise later on that may surprise you. When you find out any concerns from a home inspection this is your opportunity to negotiate with the seller to either fix some of the most concerning issues, or even negotiate a fair price for the repairs that need to be made before the sale is finalized. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
