Lipstick On A Pig - Always Get A Home Inspection When Buying A home in Springfield MO, or anywhere else for that matter!

We recently got a home under contract for a buyer in Springfield MO.  It was an older home but very cute and had a good price. It had many items that were new:  carpeting, paint, interior doors, windows, light fixtures, porch, bathroom and a brand new A/C unit.  It appeared that someone knew what they were doing and fixed it up right.

You can probably guess the rest of the story... When the inspections were done, all kinds of things were wrong with the home.  Bad wiring, extensive mold in the attic and basement, and structural issues. Needless to say, the buyer was able to get out of the contract and move on to a much better property.

The inspector said it all. You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig! That's why we always recommend a home inspection when buying a home in Springfield MO, no matter what the age or appearance of the house!
