People live in them, weather effects them, people work on them (some do a good job, some, not so good), fires and damage happens, investors fix up and sell them, owners remodel them (with and without permits), people buy and sell houses for different reasons.
Every reason has a strategy or goal to accomplish with the property. Our job as a good home inspector is to give you the key pieces of information to make a good choice with what to do with the property.
I have 20 years experience in custom home building and remodels.
There is a story
to every house
Old house but good bones
Good builder, well built home
Old house fix and flip. (Was the work done correctly or did they cut corners to save cost.)
Turn of the century homes, built with older building codes and standards. How has it faired over the years?
Remodeled or added onto. Who did the work? Did they get a permit? Did they use proper materials? Bottom line, will it work or last for the test of time, and how much will it cost if it needs to be replaced?
What can’t you see and where are the critical areas that need your attention? Is it life threatening, or something to just monitor?
