There are many risks not getting an inspection, and a good home inspector.

  1.  You won't be alerted to real safety issues. 
  2.  You're giving-up a handy negotiation tool.  
  3.  Protection from expensive repairs and replacements. 

There are a number of safety issues you might not discover without a home inspection 

 If material defects or small problems are not found during a home inspection, a buyer can't use these to his or her advantage by negotiating the selling price, repair costs, and/or share of closing costs. Without knowing, it will be you in most cases, who will have to deal with said problems well after the seller is gone. 

 Home inspections are conducted by experienced, licensed professionals to uncover what's known as "material defects." These are problems with a home's components and systems, such as the roof, foundation, electrical wiring, HVAC, plumbing, and the like. 

Material defects are issues which negatively affect a home's value and/or pose safety and/or health hazards.

Thinking of Skipping the Home Inspection?

Even if your home inspection turns up clean, it is nice to have that peace of mind. It can seem like an unnecessary expense, especially when your new home purchase is already squeezing your budget. However, the cost of a home inspection is worth it. It is better to pay $300–$500 for a report you don't need, than to skip it and pay $3,000-$5,000 for a new roof within a year of buying your new home
