I often get asked by buyers of new construction why they would need a home inspection. Doesn't the municipality inspect the homes to give them a "use and occupancy" certificate?

Great article here by Jeff Belonger about the difference between APR and interest rates. Worth reading and understanding if you are looking for a home and will be using a mortgage.

I grew up in the suburbs of London, England and learnt to drive in London traffic, many times making it round Hyde Park Corner and Piccadilly Circus without incident.
