What to Know About Home Inspections

Buying a home or property is probably the biggest purchase you will ever make. It's important to make sure your inspection is done by a highly qualified and educated professional.
 
You must understand the condition of the property before completing your purchase transaction. Home inspections give you the opportunity to have the home thoroughly examined by a professional trained to find significant defects and safety hazards. 
 
Investing in the cost of a home inspection can be well worth it for peace of mind and to avoid the cost of repairs not disclosed by the seller.
 
Join Pete Sabine and Leslie Whitney as they interview professional home inspector Shaun Lenhart with LHS Inspection Services.
