A home inspection is almost automatic for homebuyers during the escrow
period. The goal is to uncover issues that present either an unsafe
environment, potentially expensive repairs, and other challenges the new
buyer may not expect. The cost and depth vary widely in the real estate

The quality depends not only on the expertise of the inspector but
the time they spend on the property and the kind of tests they perform.

Some inspection items are typical, such as electrical and systems, but
others are not performed unless requested. These less common
inspections may not be necessary in all instances but should be considered
when hiring an inspector.

· Radon Gas Inspection
· Electromagnetic Radiation Testing
· Geological Survey

· Mold Inspection
· Water Quality Inspection
· Drainage Check
· Pool/Spa Inspection
· Soil Analysis
· Energy Efficiency Audit

These uncommon inspections may require hiring specialists to ensure a

can save thousands of dollars in repair or retrofit costs later.
