Written by bestselling real estate author Robert Irwin, this book levels the playing field by equipping you with an exhaustive list of questions directed to all the physical aspects of a house that may not be covered in the initial inspection. From the lawn, pantry, basement and attic, this book will lead you through every nook and cranny of rooms, keep, closet, and many more. This book is very useful if you don’t want bad surprises a week or two after moving into your new home.

Well, there you have it. What’s left is to go to your local bookstore and purchase the books for later reading. Best of luck to your family!
