There’s no requirement for you to hire an inspector. However, it’s a good idea to have an inspection before purchasing any home, whether it’s new or 100 years old. Hiring an inspector makes it more likely you’ll uncover any problems with your new home before closing.

But a home inspection isn’t just about finding defects. It’s a great way for you to learn more about your property, as inspectors will discuss their assessment and give you an opportunity to ask questions.

An inspection is only one step you should take before closing on your new house. Talk to one of our agents for more information about the homebuying process.
