What is a home Inspection



This is a topic that often generates long and rambling responses from home inspectors.  The short answer is that a home inspection teaches you about your house; What is right or wrong, what needs to be done and how soon, what is a big deal or isn't and what you can do to keep the home in top condition.  If you want the long rambling answer about what a home inspection is, checkout the wikipedia page here.
