Why do I need an inspection?

An inspection report tells you a lot about the home you are looking to purchase. If you bypass the inspection, you may have less information than you need to decide. You could overlook issues that are not easy to assess that a home inspector would be able to discover. The results of a home inspection can be enough to make some people back out of a sale. Skipping the inspection is not advised by most realtors or mortgage originators.
