What to Look for During a Home Inspection There are a lot of homebuyers out there who know home-buying backwards and forwards. They will march along with a home inspector from attic to basement, chuckling over chimney design and debating the pros and cons of in-floor heating. If that isn't your home inspection style it's perfectly fine. If you hire a home inspection professional, you really don't need to know exactly what to look for during a home inspection.
