Will someone please explain how Numb3rs gets canceled and Fringe stays?
So you are buying a home, a foreclosure or a HUD house. You need to get it evaluated/inspected by an impartial 3rd party! There are lots of reasons but the main one is to make sure that your dream does not turn into a nightmare. Not to scare anyone but MANY (not ALL) the vacant homes that are on the market are in need of work. Even if they look good on the surface, they have issues. A furnace that needs work can run you $200 – $1500 and a new water heater will run you $600 – $1000. Those are just some of the little “routine” replacement items. What about replacing a roof or repairing a crumbling foundation? Thousands easy! Get them ALL inspected.
What about the inspection report? I recommend one with lots of photos and diagrams. Why? Because if you need to get something repaired or replaced, how do you know what to tell a repairman or contractor? Sending a contractor to the back corner of the house or to the right window, will not cut it. Use the report like a google map for the contractor to pinpoint the defect. You need an inspector who cares enough about you and your house to give you the report you need. When you choose an inspector, make sure you ask him about the type of report that they provide.
