An investor recently had me looking over a gorgeous 84 acre piece property on the French Broad River with views of both the river and mountains in the background. The whole thing has already received permission for a 65 unit subdivision with sellers ready and eager to make a deal. One BIG problem though, the property is across the road from the county landfill. ( Don't even ask why the county chose to site this within spitting distance of the river!)

And for those who say, "Who's to decide what is a minor or big problem", I say that I wish (3 comments)
I recently did a search on Active Rain for Home Repairs and Home Inspections issues and was not surprised to find over 60 blogs about this issue. My concern about home inspections and repairs is about the entire process itself. My experience has been that purchase price negotiations are the easy part of the equation. After we have the Offer to Purchase Contract done, the real drama often begins.
