Simplified Home Inspections
By Greg Vanden Berge
Before we get into
the book I would like to share something with you that someone shared
with me that I learned after I bought my first home.
“If you don't know what you're looking at and you buy a house from someone who doesn't have your best interests first, you're screwed.”
It might not mean a lot right now, but if you don't know what you're buying or the people that you're buying from, how would you actually know, whether you're getting a good deal or not. I've learned the hard way and trust me, the lessons I've learned will be embedded in my mind forever.
That’s what got me thinking, what if I could share some of the things I've learned about home inspections with other people?
What if I could prevent one person from purchasing the nightmare house on Elm Street?
What if I could prevent one person from buying a home that would need over $50,000 worth of repairs in the near future?
This book isn't going to provide you with enough information to do your own home inspections, but it should have enough information to prevent you from purchasing the money pit.
I was taken advantage of on my first home purchase at 21 years old by an unscrupulous real estate salesman and it cost me dearly. This one purchase, forced me into financial bondage and it's a lesson that I'll never forget.
The years I've spent working as a general contractor on some of these nightmares, has inspired me to do something about it. I'm tired of standing by and watching unsuspecting innocent hard-working people, getting taken advantage of.
If you could just learn a few things from this book, it will be well worth the money you've spent.
