    Sometimes there's enough evidence to do a home visit rather then you go to them. Home visits don't really mean anything other than they are coming to you instead. Wait a week after the assessment then if you live in the UK give DWP a ring to request a copy of the assessment report. This will give you some idea what the decision is likely to be because they mostly go with the report. Good luck.
