OUT OF STATE REAL ESTATE INVESTORS- TAKE NOTE

By
Home Inspector with H.I.S. Home Inspections (Summit, Stark Counties)

The front of the house does not tell the whole story

Pictures of the front of houses are nice, but they don't tell the whole story... NOT EVEN CLOSE!

Many out of state property investors are now springing up, due to the recent foreclosure crisis, and the seminar gurus who are teaching people how to do this. This is great news for the market, generally.

The thing is, how sure can you be that you are getting enough information... and accurate information about the property you intend to purchase, without seeing it for yourself?

This is the very reason that I recently started a new service primarily just for this type of investor, and this situation. Investors can now call on me in the greater Northeast Ohio area, and I will perform a pre-buy inspection, which will inform them of the current condition of the house, the approximate costs involved for any major repairs, and an analyisis of the general neighborhood as well, noting things like vacant or boarded up houses in the vicinity, traffic flow, businesses, schools, and anything else that can affect the value of the home being considered.

Negative and positive aspects of the home will be adressed in the report. A total for major repairs figuring local average prices is also included, along with extensive digital picture files.

All of this to help the investor make an informed, wiser purchasing decision.

I have 37 years of construction & rehab experience behind me, as well as over 22 years inspecting homes. I also rehab homes for re-sale myself. Cost estimates are always up to date with current market prices.

If you are considering purchasing in this area, put my expertise to work for you. You will have more confidence in your purchasing for investment when you know all the facts. ( I have saved many investors thousands and thousands of dollars to date).

You can call me for a free consultation, and pricing for your specific needs at 330-644-3000, or

toll free 800-860-6909 any day up to 9 PM EST.

I've worked with out of state investors who purchase these home having only seen a few photos. Typically the photos are not a true picture of the condition of the home. Last year, in a rough part of Detroit, I pulled up to one of these investor properties only to call my client and say it's not gonna happen.

It's not my business to tell them not to buy but when squatters are there I don't go in.
