Are you buying a home and wondering if the home inspection is necessary? The simple answer is, yes. A home inspection assesses the condition of a home. 

What does a home inspector look for?

While it varies from state to state, inspectors generally look for major items in a home that may need repairs. A few of these include:

  • Roof Condition
  • Plumbing and electrical
