Home Inspection:

Home Inspection: A Home Inspection Is Different Than A Home Appraisal. An Appraisal Gives You A Rough Estimate Of How Much A Home Is Worth, But An Inspection Tells You About Specific Problems In The Home. An Inspector Will Walk Around The Home You Want To Buy And Test Things Like The Heating And Cooling System, Light Switches And Appliances. They Will Then Give You A List Of Everything That Needs Repaired Or Replaced In The Home. Most Mortgage Lenders Don’t Require An Inspection As A Condition Of Getting A Loan, But It’s A Good Idea To Get An Inspection To Make Sure That Your Home Doesn’t Have Any Pressing Issues Before You Buy It.
