What about older houses?

When it comes to the inspection of a house from the 70s or earlier, you can expect that there will be more to look at than in new homes. Now, they will both have their own problems, but the older homes will have more stories to tell. Additions, previous repairs, unsatisfactory repairs, outdated wiring or heating and air systems are just some of the stories that need to be interpreted. The foundation and framing of the older home is likely more stable than that of a new home. The reason is Mother Nature has already inflicted the majority of her damage to the house. The home is comfortable in its settling and has generally stopped moving and adjusting.
