Home Inspection Guide For Buyers and Sellers . Home inspections are an essential component of real estate transactions for millions of buyers and sellers. Whether you are shopping for a previously owned house or a brand new house, an inspection provides insight to the condition of the home you are buying. If you are putting your house on the market, a pre-sale inspection may help hasten the sale and could generate a higher price.

In essence, a home inspection is a visual examination of a house and property. When performed by a qualified professional, it includes:
-A thorough visual inspection of the structure (inside and out, from foundation to roof).
-An examination of all major systems.
-An objective evaluation of the condition of more than 400 items.
-A printed report covering all findings and identifying potential concerns.
The following pages provide a more detailed description of a
