A home inspection isn't just usefull when buying a home. It can be invaluable when selling one too!
A home inspection can detect previously unknown problems that you may wish to address before putting your house on the market.
For example, let's say an inspection revels that there is a small crack in the foundation. Getting this fixed in advance could help prevent the "buyer turnoff" or price reduction that could result if the buyers' inspector were to discove the problem first.
So what actually happens during a home inspection?
Here are a few snapshot of what to expect.
The inspector should check the house inside and out, top to bottom. The inspection should include a trip to the roof, a visit to every room in the house, crawl into the attic, a look inside electrical outlets, and more. (If all of these are not done, ask why.)
An inspection is a lot like a doctor's examination. It whould check every system of the house for potential problems: structural, electrical, heating and cooling, roofing, ventilation, grading (to ensure that water drains away from the house), and plumbing.
