It's in your best interest! You are buying a large asset why not dedicate 2-3 hours and meet your inspector? If work schedule does not allow you to do it during the week, find an inspector who will agree to come on the weekend.
Also, keep in mind, inspectors have their requirements for filling out an inspection report: there are some items they are not supposed to put in the written report but can always talk to you about them if you are present.
This is also your opportunity to ask questions about the home's features, structure and systems.
We have designed a questionair for buyers to ask their inspectors during the home inspection, let me know if you would like a copy of it.
