The main purpose of a home inspection is to give you the information needed to make an informed decision on the purchase- most home inspections focus on the major defects that will cost the buyer a lot of money above the purchase price to repair.
>Home inspections are not mandatory, but it is a good idea to invest in one, however, the cost of
a home inspection is worth it.
It is better to pay $400-500 for a report you don’t need than to ship it and pay $3,000 for a new roof within a year of buying your new home.
As the Seller, you can legally refuse to make the repairs in the alternative, the seller can agree to fix some things and not others and the Buyer can accept or reject the compromise.
