Should I attend the home inspection?
It is not required that you attend, but it is highly recommended. During the inspection tour, you will be able to discover the problems with the property that your inspector is trained to find. Seeing and discussing the property with a trained professional gives you a much better understanding of the overall condition of the home. Even if there are few problems, the home inspector will show you some of the systems and devices in the home with which you should be familiar. Your inspector will also point out some of the positive aspects of the property that may help you in your decision-making. He may be able to make recommendations or suggestions that can ease anxiety about the purchasing process.
