Here is a greatarticle from the Washington Post about why it’s important to hire the right home inspector.

From the article:

Checkbook’s undercover shoppers were astonished by how often many of the inspectors missed obvious defects. Before the inspections, Checkbook staff identified or created 28 problems they thought any inspector should catch — including a big leak under the kitchen sink, inactive electrical outlets, roof damage and signs of a rodent infestation. As a group, inspectors caught these problems only half the time.
