Flipper home. Home Inspection in Artesia New Mexico.

The last post about the flipper home was about the roof issue with the mis matched shingles. But what about the rest of the roof?

There are other issues that need to be addressed with the roofs condition.

After the repairs are made to the roof. Make sure the repairs are in place and good to go. Don't simply "Fix it and forget it".

At Desert Sun Home Inspections based in Carlsbad New Mexico. We strive for the best home inspection for the buyer or seller. If the buyer knows of issues with the home they want to purchase, then they can make an informed decision on the purchase of the home.

This will also help the sellers of the home. By listing the issues with the home if any, the seller will be notified as to the required repairs by the sellers agent.

Take for instance the repairs to this Flipper home.

As in the last post showing the roof repairs that had gone bad, the seller probably did not have a clue the roof ws in this shape. He was probably told by the repairman the roof was completed and the repairman was paid in full. But the seller did not confiorm the work was completed in a satisfactory mannor.

Take a look at a few Other issues with this roof.

The repairs are all over the rear slopes of the home. These will nopt remain in place and the winds will remove a lot of the shingles as shown in the first picture.

The second picture shows shingles that were "Replaced but never removed".

A very unprofessional repair to say the least.

When flipping a home make sure the work has been inspected by someone that knows what the repairs should be like when completed correctly. It is cheaper to get a Trust But Verify Inspection than to have to go back and repair the work time and time again.

This is why you always get a "Trust But Verify Inspection" by a certified inspector. For the peace of mind.

Have a great day every one.

If you're flipping a home and you're not a contractor, find one.  A very good one!

Clint ...If I were a flipper I think I would go overboard to make sure everything was done right ...so the word would get around to buy the homes I had a part in!

Clint-lots of red flags on this job, this is actually why its important to get a third party inspection.

Hi Marc,

Sound advice for anyone doing work on a home, let alone a flipper.

Many things can and will go wrong. Don't leave money on the table.

Have a nice day in Pa.

Best, Clint McKie

Hello Rob,

That is what you want to be known for. Offering homes that are move in ready.

After all your reputation is at stake.

Have a great day in Bristol my friend.

Hi Adrian,

This could have been caught if the inspection would had been done a month ago.

But many flippers want to save money and end up paying for it later.

Have a very nice day in Seattle.

Hi Donald,

We see way too many for my taste. Cutting corners is not the way to go.

Have a really good day on the West Coast.

Hi James,

Just too much at stake not to. Verify and they will be honest when knowing you do verify everything.

Have a good day in Rogers my friend.

Hi Sally and David,

These homes need  a more close inspection, knowing the flipper situation.

Have a good day in Wisconsin.
