The house looks good, the seller says everything's fine so why..
So why bother with a home inspection? There are many things that even a seasoned professional can't catch by looking. Good home inspectors have many tools in their bag to look for issues. They also are knowledgeable in local building codes and how the property you are under contract to buy measures up. IRC code certifies inspectors. In my opinion, when purchasing a property if it is possible be present at the inspection. Inspectors form an opinion, based on examination, of the houses systems. For further info you can check: CMI(certified master inspector), A.S.H.I.(American Society of Home inspectors) or ashi.orgÂ , nahi.org and other references. Best of luck and get it inspected early during your option period!Â
