Buying a Home is a stressful decision. You hire an Inspector to avoid unpleasant surprises down the road. Instead, you get a lot of negative information on the day of the Inspection, but try to keep things in perspective. No house is perfect. A good Inspector will explain defects in an easy to understand manner and may even be able to offer possible repair solutions. Keep VALUE in mind when making the final decision about whether or not to buy a home.
