Article Summary: 

This article provides a checklist for first-time home buyers to conduct their own DIY home inspection before hiring a professional home inspector. The checklist covers various aspects of the property, including bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, basement and crawlspace, attic, outside landscape, structure, roof and gutters, windows and doors, HVAC, plumbing, and electrical systems. It helps potential buyers to identify any immediate attention or repairs required before moving in and gives them something to check against the inspector’s final report. The article also advises hiring a licensed, experienced, and qualified professional home inspector and being present during the inspection to ask questions. The overall goal is to ensure that the property is in good condition before making a significant investment in buying it.
