A home inspection is a visual and non-exhaustive evaluation of a home’s condition and potential safety issues. Home inspectors not only identify problems within the various systems of the home; they can give buyers valuable information that will help them with the maintenance and upkeep of the house as time moves forward. If you’re planning on getting, or need a home inspection, here are five mistakes home buyers, and home sellers make that you should avoid when buying a home or selling a house.

  1. Not Doing Your Due Diligence On The House Inspector
  2. Not Preparing The Home To Be Inspected
  3. Not Getting A Pre-Sale Inspection (AKA Move-In Certified Inspection)
  4. Not Reading The Inspection Report To Completion
  5. Not Attending The Inspection As The Client
