March home sales up 54 percent over February

My home inspection was up 33% for March 2010 when compared to March 2009. With the market up 24% for March 2010 vs 2009, it looks like I gained some market share. Thankfully I have great clients and associates that give my information to others. I do not believe that the tax incentive ending this month will "halt" business.  (Apr 22, 2010 | post #2)

Inspect that house!

I am a home inspector and a larger percentage of my inspections have been on foreclosed homes. I wanted to state that just because a home is a repo does not mean that the property is automatically has a lot of issues. All house have issues even new homes. I have inspected repos that are in great shape and fantastic deals. Do not discount a house because it is a bank owner property.  (Dec 2, 2008 | post #1)

Study: Increase In Ladder-Related Injuries

A good rule of thumb is that for every 4 feet in height the base of the ladder should be 1 foot away from the wall. Example ladder goes 24 feet up the side of a house and the bottom of the ladder shoudl be 6 feet away from the side of the house.  (May 5, 2007 | post #1)

Product Recalls

Maytag recall becomes troublesome

Home buyers should consider having the home inspector perform a recall research investigation on any of the appliances in the home. Jim Troth http://www.homeins  (Feb 3, 2007 | post #1)

Illegal with AK-47's ????

"Illegals are not immigrants they are criminals" Come into the country if you want but do it legally. Coming in illegally shows lack of respect for laws.  (Sep 8, 2006 | post #20)

Buyers in Control

With home buyers being rarer these days buyers are better able to control the process. Unlike a year or two ago, home sellers are less likely to turn down an offer because of a home inspection contingency. All home buyers should include the home inspection contingency on the purchase offer. With a lack of numerous potential buyers sellers may have to wait several months before another interested buyer comes along. Not wanting to lose the sale the contingency is more likely to be accepted. Any home seller who rejects an offer because of an inspection contingency may be hiding a problem with the property.
