Default Panel Safety and Load Question

Hi, I am purchasing a home and the inspector told me that I needed to buy a new panel system b.c it was only 150 AMPS. The house is 2900 Sq/ft with regular appliances. Also, he suggested that I get a longer return strip for all the white return wires. See below for pictures. Does any have any thoughts on his suggestions?

Have your electrician do a load calc.

You need to hire an electrician in your area. These issues arent something that can be determined through pictures.
