I highly recommend having a whole house inspection before closing. Definitely hire a home inspector that is reputable. Ask your Realtor for inspector references if you do not know any inspectors. Experienced Realtors know who to hire to do a detailed inspection. Inspection reports are approximately 20 pages. Normally, an inspector finds a few items that need repaired on existing homes. Your Realtor can help explain which items are defects. Defects are the sellers responsibility to fix, or pay for repairs. Routine maintenance items are the purchaser’s responsibility. If the inspector finds major problems with the home that cannot be corrected to your approval, then your Realtor and purchase agreement protect your best interest.
