Today's Home Inspector is "In The House"

Nov 7, 2018

How well do you know your home? If you’re like most people, you have a vague sense of all the various systems and components and who to call when they don’t work anymore. Did you know you can avoid expensive repair bills by discovering major defects before you buy a home? If only you knew what to look for before you even made an offer!


Of course, you’ll get a home inspection once the contract is ratified. Then the inspector’s report turns up all sorts of issues that you had no idea would add up to huge investments in repairs and upgrades. So you start the hunt over again. And you’ll pay for yet another inspection.


Instead, take a tip from Welmoed Sisson, an ASHI-Certified Home Inspector in Maryland. She has written this helpful guide that walks you through some of the major issues that appear over and over again in her reports. Most of them are readily visible to someone who knows what to look for. The book is peppered with stories from her career, along with original cartoons and, of course, lots of pictures. While it’s not a substitute for a home inspection report, it’s written in non-technical language that makes complex issues more understandable for anyone wanting to know more about their homes.
