Hi Everyone at Zillowland, I am brand new to Zillow but you all probably guessed that. I apologize about the self promotion. I am becoming aware of the good neighbor policy. Will be more respectful in the future.With respect to what to look out for when buying properties, most people can use common sense. The details are in your eyes. Look at the condition of the property, you can see if its been properly maintained. Don't let old confuse the eye for abuse.Every buyer is different and has different needs. If you are buying a property for rental income, obviously your agenda is different from someone who intends to occupy. But, to be safe, Inspectors are trained to look beneath the obvious and to give you and overall assessment of the conditions. Roughly 3200 items from foundations to roofs.Remember, many Inspectors right now are hurting for work. Most believe that the cheapest on the street gains the most business. But for everything there is a cost. In other words, is an Inspector who gives you the best price is he the most qualified? Will they spend the time looking at the details and pprovide the details and photo's on the reports. I doubt it.The old saying about "getting what you pay for" is it.Remember, any Inspector worth their salt is willing to provide you a sample report from a recently completed inspection. Then all you need to do as the client is use your eyes, apply some common sense and read the details.Folks, there are a lot of good Inspectors out there. I'm proud to be one. Just remember its your money and your investment and your property. So do what you need to do and because the few dollars you spend today will save you thousands in the future.Good Luck.
