15 Most Common Inspection Items

When you’re buying or selling a home and the purchase agreement is freshly signed and you’re officially in escrow, things move fast.

Just how important are home inspections to buyers? An annual American Society of Home Inspectors reveals that 88 percent of respondents say home inspections increase their confidence about the condition of the property, 72 percent of U.S. homeowners said that a home inspection helped them avoid potential problems when they bought their home, and 64 percent of homeowners said they saved a lot of money as a result of their home inspection.


But home inspections don’t have to be nerve-wracking or a stumbling block to a home sale closing as planned.
