Via John Mulkey, Housing Guru (TheHousingGuru.com): Regardless of whether you’re buying a new home or a resale, you’ll want to have that home thoroughly inspected by a competent home inspector. All homes will have some hidden defects, and it’s the job of the inspector to discover as many of those as possible. I’m not referring to the superficial or cosmetic defects that you’ll find during a new home walk-thru. The kinds of problems you want your inspector to point out are those with the potential to create significant problems and which may be expensive to correct.
