Should you get a home inspection when you are buying a home? The answer is a resounding YES! When buying a home you never know what is going on behind the walls, in the attic, condition of plumbing, electrical systems, etc. You should always have a home inspection performed by a licensed individual. I thought a fun way to illustrate this would be to show you some photos from actual inspections to show you some of the things that have been found. Most times you will not find issues like this but they sure are funny to look at!
Looks like they ran out of 2x4's. Good thing somebody was drinking!
It would almost be funny if it was from the same house as the picture above.
Apparently someone hasn't really quit smoking and felt that the electrical panel would be a good place to put out lit cigarettes.
Is that a spork, or a fork, I can't tell. Either way it definitely belongs there!
You should always have all the fuses labeled.
"Honey, while you are in the shower can you check the main electrical panel?"
1001 uses for duct tape. Would you trust it to hold up your roof?
Those would be wasp nests. Hope you don't need to get to the electrical panel in the dark!
We couldn't have asked for a better realtor! My girlfriend and I moved to SoCal from New York City and had very little exposure to this side of the country. On my first call with David (I found him on Yelp!), he asked a few detailed questions regarding our expectations and then gave a great overview of the various areas/cities in Orange County that would be a fit for us. He went on to set up a search for us which we reviewed online. After David had narrowed the properties down for us, based on area, view, year built, etc., we scheduled a day to look at the options in person with him. Only 1 out of 7 properties was a bad fit, the rest was pretty much what we were looking for. We decided on what should be our new home, David guided us through the paperwork, and we moved in shortly after. I'll refer David to friends and business partners and we'll certainly use David if we decide to stay on the West Coast and we're ready to buy a home! Thank you, David! Mag D
