Job Description for Home Inspector

Home inspectors are responsible for evaluating properties, either currently or previously owned. They determine the quality and functionality of homes’ structures and systems. They most commonly work for potential home buyers who are looking to evaluate a prospective property and need to find out if there could be any undisclosed problems in the future. The main task for home inspectors is to check for defects. They inspect every aspect of the home: the plumbing and electrical systems, roofing, foundation, and heating and air conditioning systems. They check these areas for potential problems, such as water damage, electrical faults, structural issues, or building code non-compliance. Then they report these problems to the potential home owner quickly, before the buyer has made any offers or entered into any contracts.
