Some things are beyond explaining. Home inspect in Artesia New Mexico.

At Desert Sun Home inspections in Carlsbad New Mexico.

We inspect homes for the buyers and the sellers.

There are times when the sellers should have called you for a pre listing inspection.

But then, in my opinion. Most sellers want the buyers to pay for a home inspection and then see what the home inspector comes up with in the report that the buyers may want to get repaired. The most common of all things is the missing smoke detectors and C O detectors.

Although this home did have a smoke detector. It was not properly located and there was only one in the home.

But the inspection turned up plumbing issues that needs to be addressed by the sellers.

Take a look at this area below the kitchen sink.

Kitchen sink plumbing drain.Maybe the installers of this mess didn't know there are the proper parts to hook up a double sink to the drain line.

Pipe clamps and rubber boots? Oh boy.

By the water heater we have a leak that has been there for some time. The valves had corroded to the point that

they could not be turned at all.

Main water cut off corroded.

I think replacement is a warranted issue.

And why was the valves like this? A loop back to the water heater? Maybe there was a water softener at one time!

Hello Anita.

Just a starting point for any seller to consider. Even new homes need a pre listing inspection.

Have a great Christmas day in Warner Robins.

Hi Debbie,

That's O.K. The home should be ready if everything was taken care of when the first inspection was completed.

Have a nice Christmas in Clarksville.

Hi Charles.

Here is the same way. But the agents are the ones who need to push for the pre listing inspections.

Enjoy the Christmas season in the Seattle area my friend.

Hello Wayne,

So true. If the issues if any, are taken care of before they show the home for the first time. Then the buyers will feel a lot better about the home.

Have a really relaxing Christmas in Chicago with the family.

Hi Adrian,

I have had only Two homes in 30+ years of inspecting that there were no issues. There is always something to have repaired r replaced.

Have a nice Christmas in Seattle with the family and friends.

Hi Jay,

Maybe the owners were getting wild on the counters in the kitchen. This would explain the need for a bushing to obsorb the vibrations. LOL

Have a really nice Christmas with the family in Bristow my friend.

Hui Michael,

This could be. We have over 500 earthquakes a year here in New Mexico.

One never knows what they were wanting to do under there.

Enjoy the Holiday season and a very Merry Christmas in Brentwood.

Hi James,

So true. But what about when it finally starts leaking, then what call Uncle bob back? I don't think so.

Have a really nice Christmas day with family in Rogers my friend.

Clint, I ALWAYS suggest a pre-listing inspection.  It saves so much more money in the long run and can avoid a stigmatized property if it turns out that there are a plethora of items that need to be fixed.

After 25  years in Real Estate, you seem ti have the right approach to a pre listing inspection.
