Beware of the Quick Flips--Success or Disaster--MK Property can help!

Do you blame Home Depot or LOWE's or how about these fly by night television shows that have regular people remodeling their new home in 30 days!!  Buying a home is and will be your biggest purchase and by taking the right steps investing in a home inspection on your future property will give you a better understanding of the property itself. Especially if the property is considered a flip , the attention to detail could be neglected and replaced with the flipper just looking to make a quick profit....

Now understand me when I say Ive done a ton of homes that turn out to be gems.  I'm actually amazed at what a general you tuber is able to accomplish with little knowledge and skill at times but what I want to focus on is safety first and foremost and structural integrity that gets compromised at times.  

In my line of work Ive seen a 50 gallon water heater get moved to the attic with no structural supports , a water heater of that size, filled with hot water can weight more than 550lbs!  Another common mishaps is electrical gremlins throughout the space from incorrectly installing fixtures, lighting and outlets, more than half the time Im guaranteed to find one of more outlets installed incorrectly.  Areas like crawlspaces and attics tend to get the most neglect , its out of site , out of mind..but having a home inspector , he should enter each space in the structure and provide a overview of the condition of each area.

In the end a home inspector is hired to provide you with a detailed report describing and rating each sector within the structure (Electrical, Plumbing, Structural), give you a overall understanding of what issue are current, and work with the potential buyers if they have any additional concerns prior to buying the home.

No matter if the home is a brand new build or freshly remodel, investing in a Home Inspection is a must , especially with the Interwebs nowadays.  There just too many variables out there that can turn a dream home into a disaster property......
