In his new book, Mike Holmes is on a mission. The star of the incredibly popular Holmes Inspection program, Mike shows you how to spot problems that could be expensive or even catastrophic, giving you the information you need to judge a house wisely. From the mechanicals (furnace, electrical and plumbing) to the "envelope" (floors, walls, doors and windows) to issues of location and siting, this book includes real case studies, "red flag" sidebars and hundreds of photographs, and alerts you to the ugly realities behind the "lipstick and mascara" that many vendors use to cover up problems when selling their homes.

Great book for beginners. It helped us know what to look for during our home inspection and was easy to understand. We did wish we could have had the actual Mike Holmes there! I think this book would go well alongside something more in depth, I don't think I would recommend JUST this book by itself. But it is definitely an excellent reference and starting point!
