Once you find the house of your dreams, it is so important to call a licensed home
inspector. Home inspectors will tell you the CONDITION of the house so your
dream does not become a nightmare!
If you are buying a property “as is”, — as is what ? —- $ 5,000 in repairs or $50,000?
Even “as is” needs to be inspected.
Be informed, be happy.
