What do you look for during a property inspection?

Property inspectors are looking for areas that need repair, possible safety hazards, and that the home is up to code. Property inspectors should be up to date on local building regulations and can serve as a guide on how a home can be approved. Here’s a list of things that property inspectors look for.

What to look for:

  • Leaks and plumbing issues
  • Electrical system
  • HVAC condition
  • Roofing and flooring
  • Foundation
  • Hazardous materials, i.e., led paint
  • Insulation and energy efficiency
  • Basement, attic, and garage conditions

The main concern of a property inspector isn’t the value of a home, and their report cannot serve as an appraisal. A property inspector looks for issues that need repair and structural faults.
