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!
Unlike most buyers or sellers, who have to compare their Realtor in a vacuum, we hired David to sell our home after firing a bad Realtor. Since a picture is worth 1,000 words I've uploaded the difference in photography between the two - the two pics I uploaded show the night and day difference between the way a good Realtor represents your property and how a bad one does. (The bad Realtor just showed up with a crappy camera, while the first thing David did was pay for a professional photographer to take pictures of the house and made slick flyers). Good pictures is just one example of the service David provided. He worked his ass off to sell our home, holding open houses every other week until we got multiple offers. Also important, David gave us good advice consistently through the process but always let it be our decision. After the experience of dealing with a shady incompetent Realtor, I can't recommend David enough for being the exact opposite. If you need to buy or sell a home David and Coastal Real Estate Group should be your first choice. Rob M
