Housing Counseling addresses the unique circumstances of the client relating to these topics. For example, group education may discuss the difference between a home inspection and an appraisal. The housing counselor can further discuss with a client during the one-on-one session options for paying the cost of a home inspection, and what will be covered in the inspection based on the type of property the client is interested in purchasing. The counselor can also ask the client if s/he has any additional questions concerning the home inspection materials provided during the education class.
