The house-buying process can seem endless: Attending open houses. Separating your must-haves from nice-to-haves. Identifying your (sort of) dream home. Making an offer. Negotiating the final price. So when you get to inspection day, it’s tempting to heave a huge sigh of relief now that your work is basically done.

But not so fast. The home inspection is one of the most crucial steps for buying a home, and it shouldn't be overlooked or rushed. In fact, the inspection process has the potential to be just as nerve-racking for the buyer as it is for the seller. What if you've fallen in love with a beautiful home that has major problems lurking beneath the surface?

That's why it's extremely important to pay attention during this (sometimes confusing) process, and take steps to avoid common pitfalls. How can you possibly screw it up? We're here to tell you. Avoid these mistakes when you get an inspection on your dream home.
