• Exterior: The exterior of the home is of course part of the home inspection. The exterior is always exposed to the elements and depending on the age of the home is likely to have a few potential issues. While your inspector is sure to check these items it is helpful for your own piece of mind that you take a look while you are at the property as well. Make sure you take a visual inspection of the gutters, roof, foundation, windows, and doors. Check to make sure that all of these items appear to be working properly.
• Interior: As you enter the home check for any odd smells that could mean there is a greater issue. Of course you will want to check the heating and cooling systems, plumbing, electrical, and major appliances. You can do these items yourself alongside your inspector by simply turning on and off all light switches and faucets to make sure everything is working as it should.
