Whether you’re selling or purchasing a home, a whole house inspection will allow you to make well informed decisions. An inspection can help sellers decide whether to repair or disclose any potential hazards and having an inspection report on hand could help speed up the closing process. As a buyer, getting a trusted inspection is the best way to decide whether or not a purchase is safe and fair.
