Wednesday Wisdom, Inspections? Apr 7, 2022 | 0 comments Shares Facebook Pinterest Are home/pest inspections (or any inspections for that matter) required to purchase a home? The answer is YES and NO. Yes, a VA loan will require a copy of the pest inspection report. In any other situation, the answer is no. BUT…As agents, we HIGHLY recommend getting them. A licensed home inspector can provide both buyers and homeowners with an unbiased report of a property’s condition to inform them about health and safety issues and other defects that affect the value of a property Conducting a pre-purchase pest inspection will help you know all about the existing or potential pest problems. A professional will also give you an estimate of how much you will have to spend to resolve the pest problem.
