A home inspection is a residential assessment that should be performed by a highly trained, qualified, and state-licensed home inspector. A thorough home inspection serves as the basis for a buyer to continue with a potential house purchase, negotiate the sale price, allow the seller to make the necessary repairs, or withdraw the sale altogether. According to Forbes, nearly 72% of Americans believe home inspections are advantageous and have greatly helped them avoid potential problems when moving into a new residence. Following are several key factors for home inspection success.
