All is not what is seems- Chelan and Wenatchee Home Inspections
When you are looking at home you wish to purchase there will be many things going through you head. Can I afford this home, what repairs will be needed, does have enough bedrooms and bathrooms, what shape are the appliances in etc, etc...
But for most we take for granted that the home is what is being sold as. If it is a traditional stick built home or a manufactured home we can make that observation fairly easily.
On a recent home inspection my client was looking at a bank owned property. I was just finishing the exterior evaluation which left me with a few questions on why they did some things with the exterior finishes. The basement was partially finished so I was going to be able to further evaluate my observations.
I was taking a picture of the EPA well head tag for my client's report when a neighbor drives by and starts asking some questions. She asked is the home being purchased? I give some very vague answers then she informs me that they were thinking that their daughter may want the home, but they had questions if the Kitchen addition had been permitted. I said I did not know. Then she informs me they were curious because when they brought the home in on a truck the kitchen was not like it is now.
Sometimes it is very good to be friendly with the neighbors because you can glean some very interesting information from them. Well this information just answered a whole lot of questions I had.
I went into the home talked to my client went downstairs and sure enough there was the final evidence.
This home was being listed as a conventional home but in actuality it was modular home.
