Home Inspection Checklist

A house is not something we buy often. So obviously when we venture out to buy one, we want the best for our money's worth. It would help a great deal if we have an inspection checklist at hand while considering the options available for purchasing a home.
The points mentioned in this checklist are the most common and basic things that need to be checked for when buying a house. It can happen that specific cases do not need all these checks, or in fact need some other things checked too. Nevertheless, you can use this checklist as an important reference tool in your quest for looking out for that perfect home for you and your family.

Clicking anywhere on the form will allow you to print it out for use.

Referring to a checklist lets you check all the aspects that you are looking out for while buying a house. It makes the whole process so much simpler. Otherwise you will either miss out on checking the important things you need to, or will take the word of the seller and later find out certain problems, or even may have to hire a professional to check the house or property on your behalf.
