Home inspection services reveal problems that can be minor or serious. They may point out overlooked repairs by the previous owner or unforeseen issues that will add up to big costs down the road. They help buyers understand the full cost of ownership and have more negotiating power in the sales process. It is important to find a qualified home inspector that you can trust, says Kevin Brasler, executive editor of Consumers’ Checkbook, an independent nonprofit advocacy group that rates local services. He suggests asking friends who have recently purchased homes for a recommendation or using an online directory such as Yelp, HomeAdvisor, or Angie’s List.
