Because buying a home is the single most expensive purchase most of us make, having a home inspection can bring small and large problems to your attention before you buy the home. This puts you in a position to renegotiate the terms of the sale or just walk away from the deal. You may prefer to have the seller make repairs, or you may negotiate a price cut. The choice is yours. You will be in a far more difficult position if problems are discovered after the deal is closed. Just remember: Buyer beware. If the time allowed for the home inspection is unrealistic then insist on having it extended — three weeks should be enough.
