Never, never, never buy a home without an inspection. Period. It is the best $500 you will ever spend and it could save you thousands down the road.
When you are looking for an inspector a few things you should look for:
- What are their credentials? Were they a builder before? Are they certified with CAHPI?
- What is your take away? What you want is a book or report outlining any potential upcoming expenses.
- Can this person talk to you in a way you can understand? In plain English, not builder speak.
