The inspection is the first thing you should order during the contract option period after the purchase agreements are signed.  The buyer has a limited opportunity to have the house inspected and negotiate repairs with the seller.

The seller in a real estate transaction is not required to obtain an inspection, so the buyer is responsible for the cost.  Although, it is not uncommon for sellers to have their homes pre-inspected when listing to help sell their home.

The top four issues to correct in an inspection report are foundation issues as your entire house depends on it, electrical systems which lead to fires, HVAC systems for comfort, and plumbing issues which could lead to flooding or worse exposure to waste.

A typical home inspection starts at approximately $375.  Options like termite, septic, foundation, and well inspections generally include additional costs.
