Pre listing inspection. Some times all you have is a good laugh.
When I got the call for this pre listing inspection, I was a little surprised. I don't get many pre listing inspections.
At Desert Sun Home Inspections in Carlsbad New Mexico, I have been trying to get as much information out to the public about getting a pre listing inspection as possible. There has not been a big response, but the calls are starting to pick up a bit for pre listing inspections.
I did find a few funny things on this inspection that,
Some times all you have is a good laugh.
Here we have a handy dandy support for the water heater's exhaust vent.
I asked the home owner who did this. Her response was "I did" I asked her if her name was Bobby LOL
She said no and I told er the story of all the Uncle Bob's working in the area.
She laughed at my story and we moved on.
Here we have a water heater that was installed by a professional plumber just Two years ago.
Can you tell what the problems are?
Here is the "other side" of the water heater. The TPV valve was plugged by the plumber saying that the valve would nevr be used. What a major safety violation.
Even the best of the best plumbers cut corners. This is why you need a pre listing inspection. The inspector will find the defects of the home and after you get them repaired or changed out. The home should be ready for the open market.
Have a great day every one.
