What is a home inspection?

Buying a home is a big move. Literally! So, before you sign on the dotted line and make the home legally yours, it’s important to know exactly what you’re inheriting from a previous owner.

The best way to avoid surprises down the road is to have a licensed professional conduct a home inspection. In the video below, Jessica Edwards with Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Advantage walks us through what is involved in a home inspection.
