As a buyer, should I be worried about a home inspection?
A home inspection is not a pass or fail. Even the worst home will not “Fail” because everything can be repaired. Also, as a buyer, you want to know everything you can about the home you are potentially buying, so there is no point in being worried because the facts will be the facts.
No home is perfect. Every report will have something on it. Even new construction! A thorough home inspection will give you a deeper understanding of the home you are buying, and from there you can make an informed decision.
Of course, every item on the report should be read, be discussed with your agent, and addressed before going forward with your purchase.
