Re: What to expect on a 50 year old house

said by LazMan:

Yes, home inspections are visual, for the most part - but a good inspector can at least see signs that will tell you where you need to look further... An inspector with a background in the trades (electrician, roofer, etc) will have a leg up on someone who took their 2 day course, and - BAM! -are now a home inspector... I also recommend against using an inspector suggested by the buying or selling agents - they have 'skin in the game' - and have a motive for the house to sell. But that's a WHOLE 'nother conversation...

That is outstanding advice right there.
