What is a home inspection?
The Bankrate.com financial term of the day is: "home inspection."
A home inspection is a buyer's way of making certain that a home does everything it's supposed to do. It's a thorough examination of a house's visible parts and systems, conducted before purchase. Buying a home is a big step and big financial commitment, so you want to know that the heat heats, the air conditioning cools, the toilets flush and the roof doesn't leak. A home inspection can result in things getting fixed before the sale goes through, or might even save you from buying a very troubled house.
Could your dream house turn into a bad dream? A home inspection might be the way to find out before it's too late.
