Find out the real value of a house or condo using the tested techniques in this step-by-step guide. Written by a professional home inspector, The Complete Book of Home Inspection, Fourth Edition, shows you how to determine exactly what's behind, beneath, above, and around a house before you make an offer. 

This comprehensive manual covers every aspect of exterior, interior, and electro-mechanical home inspection—and contains a chapter on green home technology.
