Although this is optional, it’s really not. I strongly advise against buying a home without getting a home inspection. You need a trained professional to go through the house and test all systems to let you know what’s deficient about the property. Trust me....even brand new homes have deficiencies.
Expect a home inspection to cost you approximately $400. It’s worth every penny, if it saves your ass from a $200,000+ money pit. Check out my video on home inspections for more guidance on what you should expect from a home inspection for VA loan, and how you should respond to the inspector’s report.
