When you move into your dream home you want it to be perfect. It is important that before everything is signed and the keys are in your hand that you have your house inspected by someone who knows what they are doing. Some discoveries during an inspection could save you a lot of money in the long run.
Of the roughly 30,000 U.S. home inspectors nationally, those in about 15 states don’t have to be licensed. Lucky for you in Indiana you do. Home inspections are not required to buy a home, but most buyers like to ensure that they will not be surprised by an expensive problem after closing. Also, if there are issues they can be used in negotiating the price down.
