Choosing the Wrong Home Inspector Could Cost You
SEATTLE — For Sale: Recently remodeled home on a quiet street in Magnolia. Attractive concrete siding leaks water. Extensive dry rot around the windows. Want to spend thousands of dollars on repairs? Then look no further.
Unfortunately for David and Susan Hayes, they got stuck with that house. Of course, they didn’t know about those problems when they bought the place in 2002 for $325,000.
“We’re paying for that terrible mistake right now,” Susan said.
They discovered the dry rot when they decided to replace the windows before putting the house up for sale. As soon as the first window came out, they knew they had a big problem.
