Explanation of Home Appraisal and Home Inspection

Evangeline Scott of Big Valley Mortgage talks about the differences between a home appraisal and home inspection in this video.

Home Inspections are highly advised.

Home Appraisals are required by the lender.

You as the home buyer hires the home inspector. I have a list of home inspectors that I can recommend to you.

The appraiser is hired by the lender. You as the buyer are not able to select an appraiser.

There is a lot of detail involved when purchasing a home that is why it is important to have a real estate agent and loan officer on your team that you can trust. I have a list of trusted home loan officers that I can refer you to. If you have any questions, I am here to help. Give me a call 916-865-8759.

I am looking forward to getting you in your new home!

      Thank you for bringing that point up. You are absolutely right. Home buyers may select their own home inspector but if they need a referral their real estate agent usually has a list of professional home inspectors to choose from. It is important to select a home inspector that is qualified to do the work and that will do a thorough inspection for the home buyer.
