Home Inspection Checklist

When D and I were house hunting last Spring/Summer, we had a lot of questions, like most first-time homebuyers do.  One of the most important questions that we had was, "What should I expect from a home inspection?"

If you've watched any show on the DIY Network or HGTV, or you have purchased a home before, you know a little about what you should look for in a home inspection.  But, for all of the other things that you may not know you should have checked, here is a comprehensive list.


While you may not know what all of these items are, your home inspector should cover each item on this list.  If they do not, make sure to mention it to them, so they can take a closer look.

If you are looking for suggestions on Home Inspectors, you should talk with your realtor, who has likely worked with many different inspectors.  The Better Business Bureau (BBB) and Angie's List are also great resources for finding home inspectors.

I hope that you find this checklist helpful! Please leave me a comment if you notice anything missing from this list, or if you need clarification on any of the items!

I agree with you. By checking each and every items in the house then only it can be said that the home is safe for living.

This checklist would be a great help especially for a first time home buyers. But I guess even if you have this checklist, there is still a need to hire a professional home inspector. They could really tell you what areas that really need immediate repair and how safe the home is.
