Okay, I harp on this a bit, but you don’t want to become a home buyer horror story! Do what Betsy and I always insist our home buyers do…spend the money on home inspections, from whole house to radon! It is the best money you will spend during your home buying adventure! It will make you chuckle as you read what some sellers will attempt to fool home inspectors, but you don’t want to be a home buyer that becomes fodder for someone’s article on the probable tribulations of not having a home inspection! Home inspectors are trained professionals, and they can save you a lot of money in the long run. Check out Karen Aho’s article for MSN Real Estate, Home Horrors: Lessons from home inspectors, and keep your home buying experience one not fraught with expensive repairs!
