Does a Home Inspection Cost More Than it Saves?
When buying a home, the added costs to the purchasing process can sometimes feel like death by a thousand paper cuts. Often, any opportunity to cut some of these costs is a welcome one.
One up-front cost that is technically optional in many instances is that of the home inspection. And, depending on the seller, you may be put under considerable pressure to forego an inspection to speed up the process and cut costs for both parties.
However, the up-front price tag of a home inspection is far far less than the costs a buyer could find him or herself stuck with, should they go without one. Fox News has more on why the potential savings of a home inspection far outweigh the negligible initial cost.
