When someone finds that perfect home to purchase, they're most likely going to get a home inspection.  I've found the most common problem that comes up in the inspection is problems with the electric outlets. 

  1. The outlet isn't grounded.  Keep in mind, not all 3 prong outlets are grounded. 
  2. The outlet is loose from yanking cords out and can now cause a fire.
  3. Too many extension cords going to one plug.
  4. They don't have a way to turn off the electricity if they get wet.

Everyone should look for these problems and correct them before they put their home onto the market.
