Appendix B

Example of a Good Inspection Report

In Chapter 13, we show you an example of a lousy inspection report. This appendix gives an example of what you should expect to see in a good inspection report.

Like our sample, your report should paint a vivid word picture of the home you may purchase. The inspection report should be brimming with in-depth explanations — not merely a list of checkmarks, generic boilerplate, and hastily scribbled notes.

Tip.eps Get the most out of your inspection dollar. Find a professional inspection company that will thoroughly inspect the property’s mechanical and structural systems inside and out, from foundation to roof, and present you a solid report on which you can make an informed home-buying decision. (See Chapter 13 for advice on finding a great home inspector.)
