Buying a home can be one of the most important financial investments you will ever make, and maintaining that home after you buy is of top importance. But how do you know if the house is everything it appears to be? If your home has hidden structural issues and needs major repairs, you may be falling into a money pit and sleepless nights. A home inspection is one of the smartest ways to educate yourself about the physical condition of a property before you buy, and after you buy, a regular inspection can keep you on top of any hidden repair needs.
