5 Checklist Points For Home Inspections

Learn what to expect from an inspection and tips to make sure your inspector doesn’t overlook defects.
Keeping your home clean and free of clutter will ensure the inspector can easily access all rooms. While inspectors provide a vital service, both buyers and sellers should understand their limitations. An inspector isn’t going to recommend how a house can be improved.

The cover to the electrical panel will be removed and wiring inspected to determine if the workmanship meets industry and state standards.
