@ElizaBennett - I had good luck with our home inspection, too. We actually had three to buy one house! The first buyers backed out, and then the report on the second house was so bad that we backed out. (Extensive water damager, like your mom and dad got burned on.)
A lot of people don't realize that it's just as important to get a home inspection for a new home as for a "used" one. An existing home has at least been field-tested, so to speak. But with a new home, it's important to get an inspection to make sure the builders didn't cut any corners, everything is up to code, etc.
Sometimes all the details of a new house are just as shiny as can be, but the structure is junk. A good home inspector will keep you out of that nightmare!
