A Closer Look at Home Inspection

Hiring a home inspector is a must before you purchase a home – even a new construction home. And being aware of any problems with your home before, rather than after, you own the home will cost you much less and reward you with much more peace of mind.

Based on a full inspection report, you can trust one of our Sands Realty agents and recommended home inspectors to help you request repairs, renegotiate sale price or back out of a contract before it’s too late.

A typical home inspection checklist includes:


The Foundation:

checks for evidence of any cracks, uneven grades, erosion, water pooling and drainage efficiency.

The Roof & Attic:

checks on skylight quality, evidence of any water penetration in roof, attic’s ventilation, insulation, degree of completion and ease of access will be reported.

Walls, Ceilings, Floors & Doors:

checks on efficient escape routes and evidence of any water penetration.

Porches, Balconies, Decks, & Carports:

checks on solid footing, guardrail construction quality.

Plumbing Systems:

checks for any leaks, drippy faucets, finicky toilets, low water pressure or lack of water supply to showers and sinks


checks for any problems with the stove, dishwasher, garbage disposal, range exhaust vent, oven, microwave oven, trash compactor, garage door opener, doorbell and dryer vents

HVAC & Electrical:

checks that electric panels are grounded, insulated and not in a hazardous location; HVAC equipment is functioning, and valves, coils and thermostats aren’t corroded

Home Extras:

checks on working order of pools, sprinkler systems, termites and septic systems
