Most people don’t know what they don’t know about their own house so you definitely want to have a qualified inspector check a prospective house out. I would say that at the bare minimum you at least need to get a general home inspection and the mortgage company will require a termite inspection.
Even if the seller says that they are not going to fix anything, you should at least have the option of knowing exactly what you are buying – warts and all. In addition to the general home inspection, common additional inspections are sewer, roof, electrical , A/C and pool.
