THE HOME INSPECTION
Once the terms in contract are accepted by boths parties, the buyer at his own expense have 10 days after the contract is acepted or 5 days before the closing to make all inspections.
Some buyer prefer not to have the home inspected because they want to save some money. That is a big mistake. Do not waive the rigth of having the home you are buying inspected by a professinal home inspector.
You do not want to buy a home and find out later that there are problems that cost thousands to be repaired. A home inspector can detect those problems at the right time so you can go back and have the seller to fix them for you, or give you the money to do it later.

A couple hundred dollars can save you thousands down the road.
