Handling a home inspection by yourself might not be difficult, however, as a house is probably the largest purchase you will make, getting a professional to inspect it will avoid any issues that you may face in the long run. A thorough inspection by a home inspector will point out all the flaws and problems that need to be accounted for before finalizing the purchase.
Each state has different requirements for home inspectors. So, it is important to understand that not all home inspectors have the same field training and licensing. An inspector in New York state will require 140 hours of approved training whereas Florida inspectors will need 120 hours.
