Second to having your offer accepted, the inspection is probably the most stressful part of the homebuying process. Whether it’s a brand new or century-old home, there’s no way to know the scope of possible problems until you peek behind the paint.

And remember, there’s no such thing as a perfect home. But the information you discover during an inspection may help you negotiate a lower price with the seller. It can prepare you to tackle issues once moved in or aid in your decision to walk away from the deal. Make sure you’re getting the most out of the inspection by asking these 10 questions.
