Overview

It’s easy to look at a house and put an offer on it. But it’s harder to make an informed decision based on the potential costs of repairs and renovations that a home needs. All pre-owned homes need repairs, remodeling, and general upgrades. A leaking roof, bad plumbing, or electrical problems can cost tens of thousands of dollars to fix. Without a guidebook telling you how to spot and estimate the cost of repairs, you don’t have the information you need to make good decisions. Written by a general contractor with more than thirty-five years of experience and a former building supply professional, this guidebook provides a roadmap on how to make smart decisions. Checklists, charts, and inspection tips make it easy to find hidden defects so you have all the information you need before buying. You don’t need special training or extensive knowledge of construction and building codes to buy the right home; you just need to empower yourself with the detailed information and data in The Home Contractor’s Home Purchase Guide.
