The Basics of Doing Your Own Home Inspection: Advice from a Seasoned Home Inspector
by Thomas OConnor
For years, author Thomas OConnor has accumulated interesting, and often hilarious, stories from numerous home inspections. Many are for first-time buyers for whom he has done several home inspections together before they find one that passes.
Some of the problems an inspector repeatedly sees are obvious to the professional (wet basements, roof leaks, mold, electrical wiring done by a non-electrician, gas leaks, etc.). This book teaches buyers what to look for before they pay a professional inspector to find a house that passes. If buyers knew a little bit more about what to look for, they would save lots of money!
