Home Inspection Books

From the Author: When I was 21 years old a real estate professional took advantage of me simply because I was ignorant and trusting. It ended up costing me a small fortune and ruined my credit for quite some time.   I wrote this book to prevent future home buyers from following in my footsteps. If you could only walk away with one thing from this book that could save you thousands of dollars, this book would have been worth it.   Even if you could only walk away with one thing that would save you $100, this book would have been worth it   If you're planning on purchasing or selling a home in the future, make sure that you have this one in your library.   I can't tell you how many homeowners I've worked for, with similar complaints. If they would have only done that, then they wouldn't need to do this and that's how it usually works.   In other words, if you don't know what you're looking at or what you're looking for, there's a good chance that you're not going to find it. I created this house inspection checklist, to provide property owners with a few more clues.   When are you going to quit giving all of your hard earned money to contractors and learn a little more about your home and some of the problems that could end up costing you, a ton of money in the future. The only way that I could make it any easier for you would be to actually inspect your property, myself.   Obviously, that would defeat the purpose of the book and still cost a lot of money. If you don't have a lot of money to waste, you don't have a choice, you need to learn more about your home and property.   You've heard it before, but I'm going to tell you again, you can pay me now or you can pay me later. The only difference is you can pay a little now, but I guarantee that you're going to pay a lot later. This easy-to-understand, straight-forward, approachable book, which is based upon important engineering concepts is intended to advance knowledge on the subject of shelter, one of man's basic needs. The reader can glean standardized information about the field of pre-purchase home inspections. This information will assist people in determining the condition of a home and in living a safer and happier life. The book includes a multitude of house plumbing, electrical, roofing, heating, foundation, and structural problems commonly encountered when scouring a home for potential purchase. Some building code and safety items have been presented as well. Many illustrations assist the reader to understand home inspection concepts. Additionally, it is THE guidebook for both professionals and novices alike, which serves to integrate the sound, relevant context of the issues oftentimes identified when purchasing a home. Practical Guide to Home Inspection will act as an invaluable resource to utilize when in the midst of the often challenging home buying process.
