Step cracks
Commonly know as stair cracking due to the resemblance to stairs. The cracks appear in the mortar of the brick veneer. The mortar is the weakest area of the wall and cracks easier when settlement begins. Stair cracks usually continue to the bottom of the wall. Stair step cracking with cracks wider than a quarter of an inch need to be evaluated by a structural engineer.
Foundation cracks
Not all cracks in the foundation are a concern. Shrinkage cracks and hairline cracks are mostly not a concern , but should be monitored. Separating cracks may need further investigating by a structural engineer. 
Lifting headwall Flashing
Lifting flashing can allow moisture into the structural. This can cause damage to your home and a favorable condition for mold to grow. This inspection defects needs to be address as soon as possible before wind driven rains can enter into the structure of the home.
Lead roof boot flashing
Although this is a good product a common problem with lead roof boot flashing is that squirrels like to chew it. This damages the flashing and can allow moisture to enter at roof vents.

Fire hazards at dryer vents
Dryer vents often go unnoticed and maintenance  is very important. Most home owners neglect the dryer vents and it is too common to find them clogged with lint. This creates two problems and both issues are serious. The first problem is the dryer vent becomes a fire hazard. and the second can create a moisture issue. Lots of times if the vent becomes so clogged that it can't vent the dryer vent will become disconnected inside the wall or attic. Than all the moist air venting from the dryer either vents into a wall or the attic space. This creates a moisture issue and mold can grow as a result. Dryer vents need to be cleaned and depending on how often depends on how large your family is or how often you do laundry. It is recommended to have your dryer vent cleaned at least once a year.
Flexible gas line
Some times during a home inspection Houston tx I find a flexible gas line run through a heating unit cabinet. Flexible gas lines should not be ran through heating unit cabinets. The heating unit can vibrate and damage the flexible gas line causing a gas leak. Instead hard piping is recommend.
Combustible vent strapping
Strapping missing from combustible vents like a gas heater or water heater. This often happens after roof replacement. The roofing replaces the roofing and forgets to re strap combustible vents. This can be a hazardous condition because a lot of times when the roofing lift the vents the vents are out of place especially at the water heater. I have seen this many times the water heater vent is not in place and carbon monoxide is now venting into the attic space. The other issue is when vents are not strapped they can move and break connections disconnecting or moving the vent out of place and cause carbon monoxide to vent into the attic space. It doesn't seem like a big deal ,but it can be a life saver. Many times it's the small things that can save a life.  
Moisture damaged fascia boards and soffits
Fascia boards and soffits can have moisture damage due to a roof that's leaking or over flowing gutters that are full of debris.
What kind of tools
Is the home inspector your hiring carrying?
