A home inspection can help you avoid any costly surprises that may come up when purchasing your home. It can give you, the buyer, an opportunity to arrange any repairs or negotiate the selling price before you sign on the dotted line.
When you’re waiting on your mortgage loan to get approval, you should avoid making any large, out-of-the-norm deposits to your account. Your lender may question the additional funds, or possibly deny your loan if you can’t prove the deposit is legitimate.
