Do you really need a home inspection?

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Results

The short answer is YES! Of course.

In recent years with the increase in FHA financing and the like there is a potential "yearning" for some to think that regular "general" home inspections are less important. Reason being, FHA insured financing requires an appraisal with a small home inspection component, which can lull a homebuyer and even agents into thinking that there is no need $250 to $400 more to get a standard home inspection. First, agents should NOT be recommending EVER, that you skip a thorough private home inspection, and that is according to the National Association of Realtors Code of Ethics.

I always, always, recommend a home inspection. When clients balk at spending a few hundred dollars for this service, I always remind them that it makes sense considering the hundreds of thousands that they are about to invest. Better safe than sorry.
