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!
