A home inspection usually occurs after the sales contract has been signed by both parties and between the contractual time that has been given. The cost of the inspection varies based on the size of the home. No matter what home you buy or who you work with it is essential that you have a home inspection. No one wants to move into a home with unknown issues. Depending on the size of the home it should take 2-4 hours.
