What is the difference between an appraisal and a home inspection?
appraiser is not a home inspector nor does he/she do a complete home
inspection. An inspection is a third-party evaluation of the accessible
structure and mechanical systems of a house, from the roof to the foundation.
The standard home inspector's report will include an evaluation of the
condition of the home's heating system, central air conditioning system
(temperature permitting), interior plumbing and electrical systems; the roof,
attic, and visible insulation; walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors; the
foundation, basement, and visible structure.
