Deciding on a property by the looks 

This is one of the mistakes people make while inspecting a building. They tend to judge the book by its cover. A lot of people decide on the property by merely looking at the exterior.

Also, you may not be able to carry out adequate pest inspection from outside. You need to get into the building and inspect essential parts of the building. It looks good does not mean it is good. A home inspector will confirm the actual status of the building so that if there are issues, you can factor that into your decision.

Pleasure over safety 

Another mistake people make when carrying out building, and pest inspection on a property is to underestimate the importance of safety. Your safety should be your priority when inspecting a house.
