    Default In all seriousness

    Yes folks. People really post things like this about home inspection tied into Real Estate Sales

    The importance of a Home Inspection. Seriously, does anyone really think this home needs a home inspection. How about a give away instead.

    I'm surprised that TJ did not tell his viewers to get a mold test!

    I think I lost brain cells just watching that.

    Unfortunately I am sitting here board enough to scout around the net and find these things. I had one for today that fell thru and they are looking for another home. Luckily I had one yesterday and one for tomorrow.

    "If you see mushrooms and green fuzzy stuff, well, that is not good" or what ever he said.

    "You should walk away or go for a reduced price. There is still value in something like that"

    How about the entire home gutted and 300 gallons of bleach to wash the entire home and then fix the water leaks and then rebuild the entire inside of the home.

    How about 25% of what homes sell for in the area or even less. With that much mold on the first floor you know the second floor has mold all thru it.

    That is funny Ted. Reminds me of an answer a friend gave when taking a first aid test for ski patrol. The question was, "what is the first aid for frost bitten lungs". His answer was, "Inhale two gallons of tepid water and treat for drowning".

    The beatings will continue until morale has improved. mgt.

    Putting the mask on upside down was a nice touch.

    Too funny.

    I could inspect that place from the front door.

    Does anyone think the banks are losing even more money now by not checking on the conditions of their repo's? Maybe there's a niche there for underemployed HI's?.

    Mold is Gold, close to the end they give a web site for taking a sample for $100.00
    It's news cast like these that feed upon fears.

    Hi Everyone,
    Foreclosurer, Forecloser, Foreclosurer.
    Turn off the electricity, and the sump doesn't work.
    Add having the house closed up and being in a low spot or flood plain and this is what we have been seeing. It is a toss up between a fifty dollar a month electric bill or a total loss. I see the mortgage company making the decision when they foreclose. Next comes someone taking all the copper pipes out.
    Then the windows and doors. Good luck with the neighborhood
