Inspections and Appraisals
Buying a home is probably the biggest single investment you will make. A home inspection will protect you and your investment.
A certified home inspector will give your house a thorough examination, checking the heating and cooling systems, plumbing and electrical systems, the roof, attic, walls, ceilings, floors, windows, doors, foundation, basement, and visible structures of the home.
The inspector will point out the need for major repairs, identify areas that may need attention in the near future, and explain what maintenance will be necessary to keep the house in good condition.
Home inspections are relatively inexpensive considering the size of the investment and many people consider this a small price to pay for peace of mind.

An appraisal is a report containing an estimate of the value of the property. Appraisals are conducted for the purpose of mortgage lending by certified appraisers. The appraisal should not be confused with the home inspection or the market analysis.
