If you can, be there during the inspection so you can ask questions. That's all I got, been 18 years since I had one.

we used Rick Bowling from BPG inspection services. It may be worth the cash to get the extended radon test. The home we are buying had high readings and the seller is coughing up the cash to get a mitigation system installed. Rick walked us through his findings during and after the inspection. He had a really detailed report with pics to download the next day.

I was present for this today... the owner has figured out how to completely muck up electrical and plumbing in a 10 year old house

The electrical was easy to fix, but absolutely retarded that he did it in the first place.

The plumbing he had places that sewage gasses are being vented directly into the basement.
