The ProfitDig guys talk with home inspector, Wally Rankin, about why you need a home inspector when purchasing a home. Most legitimate real estate agents want accurate home inspections and will advise their clients with regard to inspections.
If a realtor supplies you with a list of inspectors, do your research and pick the best one, even if he is the most expensive. With home inspection, you get what you pay for. A good inspector will begin his inspection even before arriving at the property - he will be looking at other properties in the neighborhood!
An inspector can also provide year-later inspections for warranty purposes, which is an excellent idea that can identify structural or engineering issues that will affect resale down the road.
