While the Property Inspector will do a thorough, professional inspection of your new home for you (discuss this with your real estate agent), it is a good idea for you to check a few things yourself when considering a home purchase. Some general considerations include:

Age,Ceiling Height,Waste Disposal

Floor Plan, General Appearance, Wiring

Square Footage, Heating System, Insulation

Traffic Pattern, Air Conditioning , Number of Entrances

Stair Width, Plumbing , Attic

Hall Width, Water Supply

You should always check /inspect these items - room by room - when considering your purchase:

1) Try all lights and switches

2) Turn all faucets on and off

3) Flush the toilets

4) Turn on the furnace and air conditioning

5) Test all of the stove burners

6) Turn the oven on bake and broil

7) Test the garbage disposal

8) Run the dishwasher

9) Open and close all windows and doors

10) Try everything else you can think of!

You need to make some notes on these interior features. Record important details and note anything that needs changing, repair or special maintenance. You'll avoid costly repairs by making this extra effort.

Walls, Floor Covering ,Appliances

Woodwork, Doors, Fixtures

Wall Coverings, Windows, Built-ins

Paint, Window Treatments, Storage

Ceiling, Lighting, Ventilation

Floor, Electrical Outlets, Closets

In addition, investigate any signs of structural or water damage (such as wall cracks, moisture, etc). When you've actually bought a home, you'll be doing a walk through of the property before closing to determine if all of the conditions in your contract have been met. However, the time to inspect and note defects you want corrected by the seller is during the "Option Period" after initially signing the contract. This is the time for the "Home Inspection". Your Realtor can assist you with any questions or concerns you might have. If you look, your realtor looks, the inspector looks, and any special inspections are made like air conditioning, pool, roof--you will be more confident.
