Which inspections should I do?
Since home inspections are not required in many situations, buyers often wonder if it’s a place to trim expenses; they are not. While the cost of inspections can add up, they rarely rise to the level of a major repair. Common inspections include pest/termite, water, septic, chimney, radon, and then the general home inspection. When hiring a home inspector, insist on one certified by the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI). ASHI has a list of what’s covered in each phase of a general home inspection. If circumstances and personal needs call for other types of inspections, don’t hesitate. Hire the appropriate inspector to put your mind at ease and prevent unknowingly buying a home that doesn’t meet your needs.
