Getting a Home Inspection

Pennsylvania is the birthplace of independence and the Constitution. One of the original 13 colonies, the Declaration of Independence was signed there in 1776. Its history provides appeal for visitors; tourism plays a significant role in the state's economy. Other key industries in Pennsylvania are farming, steel, service, retail trade, and manufacturing sectors.

A home inspection is a key element to protecting your investment when purchasing a new home in Pennsylvania. A home inspection by a certified home inspector ensures that you are aware of any major issues that could require significant repairs, prior to purchasing the home with an FHA loan. The inspection involves a detailed physical inspection of the home documented in a written report. Select a home inspector carefully: choose one who specializes in residential homes, confirm compliance with Pennsylvania's requirements for home inspectors, and get a copy of the inspection report.

The following list of FHA inspectors has been assembled from the HUD.gov database. Visit the HUD website for the most current list of FHA inspectors.
