As we’ve already mentioned, buying a home is a huge expense, perhaps the biggest expense you will have, so you want to know that the home you are buying is going to be a good one. If you skimp on the home inspection, you could be costing yourself thousands by not finding out about any major issues with the home before you bought it.
Another way you might think about saving a few dollars is by hiring a less than qualified home inspector. This, again, would be a bad idea for the same reasons as above. Its always worth it to choose an InterNACHI qualified home inspector, this way, you know you are getting the best and most thorough home inspection. Yes, it might cost you a little bit more than someone who is not so qualified, but when it comes to such a big investment, it’s worth it to pay the extra. Its important to know where to cut costs and where to spend the money, your home inspection is not something that should be skimped on.
