What should you expect from a home inspection when buying a home?

People tend to think a home inspection is more of a pass/fail process, but it’s not. It’s a visual inspection of your home by a licensed professional. They’ll test the appliances, check for any leaks, measure the air differential created by the A/C system, and inspect other items you and I can’t.

However, you still need to modify your expectations, because they don’t check behind anything. It’s purely a visual inspection. If there’s a rug on the floor, they won’t pick it up. In this way, it’s not as comprehensive as you might assume.

If you have questions about this or any other real estate topic, don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I’d love to help you.
