Home Inspection

Well, we finished the home inspection process. Overall, the house is in pretty good shape. No structural damage. There were a few minor plumbing repairs here or there and a few tiles that need to be taken care of on the roof that we will ask them to take care of, but nothing else that needed immediate attention. One big thing to consider, though, is that everything that makes the house run will need to be replaced within the next five years: the roof, the furnace, the water heater, air conditioner, and the appliances. Everything is in working condition now, but they are all towards the end of their lifespans. We also got the radon report back and there were high levels so we will have to figure out what we will need to do with that. My understanding is that there is a pump system that you install that will remove the radon from the basement and make it safe. We are thinking about asking them to take care of that as well. We have to go over the numbers again and figure out how we want to change our offer, but we are still going to go forward with this house.

And now, for pictures:
