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!
