What should Ryan and Jessica do?

- 2Go ahead with the inspection.
Ryan and Jessica should definitely go ahead and pay the licensed home inspector. An appraiser will take a look at the overall condition of the home, study comparable sales and determine the home’s value. A licensed and experienced home inspector, on the other hand, spends significant time examining the home’s structure and systems. If problems are found, Ryan and Jessica may have a chance to have the sellers fix them or to renegotiate their contract.
Uncle Charlie’s probably a lovable know-it-all, but his advice to save a little money today could cost Ryan and Jessica thousands of dollars in the future.Elizabeth, when the time comes, I encourage you to hire a licensed and experienced home inspector. If you’d like a reference to someone you can trust, please let me know. I’ll be happy to make an introduction.
