Over the four and a half decades in which I have been guiding buyers through the technical aspects of their new homes, I have observed two distinct trends:
- Increasing complexity of the subject matter, particularly in the area of environmental concerns;
- A growing compulsion among home buyers to do everything in the very best way possible for their families.
Together these two trends have taken much of the fun out of buying a new home. Most buyers are stressed rather than excited through much of the home buying process.
I try to put things into perspective by answering commonly asked questions. I also philosophize just a bit. After getting feedback from over 10,000 home inspections, I feel qualified to do this on your behalf.
Hopefully this guidance will help you sort out priorities in your own mind so you can have some fun during this adventure!
