Do-It-Yourself Home Inspection that you can do easily!

You need to inspect existing homes and foreclosure properties to make sure that you do not end up with expensive repairs and negotiate a lower price.

  • The defects, missing items, malfunctioning appliances that you find during your inspection will give you justification to get allowances resulting in lower the cost of your purchase; and
  • You can compare properties more in detail leading you to better evaluation of alternative homes and make an “educated” purchase.

  • Foreclosure homes;
  • Homes sold at auctions; and
  • Probate homes

unless we specifically explain one of them in particular.
