Should I have a home inspection before I list my home?

Dear Pearl Realty,

I am getting ready to list my home very soon and I wanted to know if I should get a pre-inspection prior to putting it on the market.  A friend of mine recently sold her house without this and the final inspection proved to be very costly.  While I know my home is in good condition, I do not want to be in the same bind as my friend.  When she wen through her inspection, she says they found things in places she never thought to look.  Before I meet with my agent, should I push for an inspection right away to avoid any unforeseen surprises?
