What do home inspectors look for?
Thorough home inspectors cast a wide net, examining both the interior and the exterior features of a property to ensure that everything is in good working order. The American Society of Home Inspectors provides a Standards of Practice document that outlines most of what inspectors are looking into. These include:
- Electrical systems
- Plumbing systems
- Roofing systems
- Insulation and ventilation
- Heating and cooling systems
- Major installed appliances (kitchen and laundry)
- Fireplaces and venting
- Structural components (foundation, crawlspaces, wall structures, etc.)
- Exterior features (doors, decks, surface grading, driveways, etc.)
- Interior features (stairways, window seals, garages, etc.)
A home inspection is a visual examination of a property.
Buying a home is a massive investment, and you want to be sure that you know as much as you can about what condition the house is in and what exactly you’re paying for. In addition to providing you with valuable insight that can help better inform your purchasing decision, a home inspection provides you with possible leverage to use in your negotiations. If you find out that there’s an issue that needs to be addressed, you may be able to get the seller to skim some money off of the sale price to account for the repair cost.
