- the location of the main water, power, and gas shut offs
- point out recommended maintenance issues
- highlight any hazardous conditions, major defects, or expenses

Questions We Can’t Answer
How Much is it Worth? That one is between you, the appraiser and your bank!
Would You Buy This House? Just a loaded question!
Is There Mold? The short answer is… Yes. Mold is present all around us. Considerations for health risks are not addressed. However the inspector can detail moisture conditions with the house envelope, existing conditions, and affects of mold and fungus on the structure and house components and what causes elevated levels in the home.
Are There Termites? Second Look will identify any visible damage or signs of Wood Destroying Insects (WDO) that may be visibly evident. Your termite inspector will determine if the activity is live and in need of treatment.
