Absolutely! We often hear that buyers are not sure if they are invited to the inspection. Remember that the buyer is the customer who is hiring the home inspector and yes, the buyer should attend the inspection. It is a great opportunity for the buyer to get a close-up view of this very important investment. Also, it is a perfect time to ask questions and to learn about your new home.
Sometimes the inspection reports can appear daunting and filled with a lot of technical information that is not easily understood. It makes things so much clearer to the buyer to be there in person, speaking directly with the home inspector and asking questions. It does make the inspection take longer, but it is well worth the time spent.
