Re: Questions about buying a house

there may be a decent amount of sales for sale, but the good ones are gone in under a week, most of them above market without inspection... I would take a friend whos either a civil engineer or construction (design/oversight type) if you need to ditch inspection and know someone...

but i know my mother uses home inspectors that are good, not silent, cause if you move in and your roof breaks, she gets no referals from you, and that's just bad business.

there are some houses that stay on the market forever because of serious problems or people asking for too much money... the big thing is to know what the absolute max you're willing to spend at the start... cause if you decide to move up for a house after seeing it, it'll probably be gone by the time you get a new loan or work out a way to pay for it. oh yeah, try to avoid variable rate loans, they tendd to be backloaded and can end up costing you a ton of money in the end.
Who says shameless self promotion is stupid? oh yeah, that was me... Click For Tunes!

45 minutes? You're about 4 hours away from me!

I did not intend to bash Realtors I just feel that if you want an inspection just hire one on your own.That inspector will be just working for you and not the person who provided the referal. That will take any chance of them letting stuff slide so they don't blow the closing. I'm not saying the realtor knows this is happening but it does go on so the realtor will keep sending them business.
