What to look for In home inspections..

Water was coming up underneath some carpet in a bedroom from a leak from the air conditioner. The seller fixed this problem and addend new carpet.

The siding should come all the way to the brick
this is not a brick house just a brick front so the brick
was pulling away from the house.
The plumbing lines were not all pulled together in this shot, when we turned the water on at the kitchen sink the water was draining in the sink in the laundry room 
The electrical box was enclosed by drywall and then the door wouldn't shut correctly so they cut the corner to shut it which is not code for a electrical box. It needs to be able to shut completely for safty purposes

  Tory gets on the roof to check it to make sure that it's not sagging, or there are missing shingles, and to determine the age of the roof.

   The downspout needs to have an extender so the water drains away from the house.

These are just a few things to look for in a home inspection, so make sure you hire a good home inspector. The home inspector should provide you with a report that has pictures and clear explanations of all the items found in the house so it can be presented to the seller.

Questions, please let me know! I would love to feature your queston on my blog. If you are moving to the Washington, DC area or already live here please call me to help you buy or sell your home.
