You should have hired a professional...

A few weeks back, My buyer had an offer accepted.

We ordered a home inspection.

We then made a list  of issues (not petty ones.)

After the repairs were made we had the right to re-inspect.


The home owner did the repairs himself...   BAD DECISION!!!

Most of he issues were worse than when we asked for repairs.

The guy admits he is no handy man.



Said that he could not afford to.

Well, we offered to  take the home  As-Is.  At a price reduction.

The seller agreed and his loss was around $10,000.


A professional would have cost under $1000.


Trying to save a dollar by pinching a penny seldom works.

We don't need a Realtor…
My wife and I were having dinner and I over heard the guy in the booth next to me… Honey, we don't need a Realtor, I can sell the home myself. My dad did it so can I. So I turned in my booth and I asked the man if he had a house to sell. "… more
Fishing isn't always about the fish…
I so many people get upset when the fish do not bite. But they forget it is not the catching of the fish only, it is also the experience. Tonight while fishing this fine loon surfaced next to my boat. He stayed for a minute and then under he went… more
