A home inspection is the buyer’s last opportunity to discover problems with the house before purchasing. And it’s a chance for the seller to address those problems and negotiate pricing with the buyer.
Here’s what to expect on home inspection day as a home seller or buyer. Learn what the inspector will look for and how you should handle any issues that are turned up in the process.
Here’s a full list of what the inspector will review, according to the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI):
Central air conditioning system (temperature permitting)
Interior plumbing and electrical systems
Attic, including visible insulation
Windows and doors
Clearly, the inspector isn’t going to tear your home apart to inspect piping and wiring. But the more an inspector can access, the more complete the final report will be.
