Should I be present for the property/home inspection? Can I just rely on the report? And if so (or not), why?
The short answer is YES. The long answer is your house is an investment just like your car ,you wouldn't just have anybody ,whether there certified or not tell you the car you wanted is good to buy without you first test driving it yourself.Your investment property is no different, you want to see what you are buying, what needs to be fixed, and how much repairs are going to cost you.
