Is there value to having a home inspection done prior to a home purchase? That is a question that many people ask themselves when they are looking to buy a home. A quality home inspection can tell you many things about your home, from the potential health hazards (mold, asbestos, radon, methamphetamine, and lead), to the structural integrity, to potential repair costs to expect in the future.
When considering the cost of most homes is a couple hundred thousand dollars or more, paying a few hundred dollars to have an expert give his/her opinion should be a no brainer. If you choose the right home inspector, the information gained will be invaluable.
