LIVEVALUATION , September 2010 Issue Submitted by Michael Connolly, CI  Smart Move Inspections, Inc.

Last month’s installment touched on how a home inspector might address sections of the Uniform Residential Appraisal Report “URAR.”.  Having already reviewed the “Subject”, “Contract” and “Neighborhood” sections, we continue to the “Site” section of the report.


Home inspectors do not evaluate lot shape or dimensions, and typically ignore any improvements to the lot, such as fountains, ponds, playground equipment and storage barns.
