Buying a home is likely the most expensive and largest investment most of us will ever make. Likely it will be one of the most stressful decisions also!
Was it done right?
How do you know it was built right? Were the renovations done well by a competent, licensed contractor? Is it a good investment? What should I know about the property to keep it up so that my investment grows? These and so many other questions percolate throughout the whole process making this one of the most exciting and stressful times of our lives.
Property Disclosure Lists
Property disclosure lists are a great tool for a potential home buyer. Yet these lists are reliant on the current home owner who may or may not realize some of the conditions in their home. Let`s face it, most of us do not have the experience and education needed in order to build a home. This lack of experience makes it problematic at best when it comes to maintenance and renovation issues that invariable come up.
