I hear buyers are waiving home inspections right now, should I do that?

Posted online

It’s not my place to tell you what you should or shouldn’t do but I’ll give you the options, pros and cons to make an informed decision that’s best for you. Everyone has a different baseline: a contractor with 20 years experience will have one view while a 21 year old first time buyer may have a widely different view. I want you to know what’s available (and what’s required depending on your loan), then it’s all about how you want to move forward.
