Complacent home owners.

Complacent home owners.

You buy the home, then you remodel the home possibly several times over the years of home ownership.

Many home owners get used to the way the home is. They don't think of the issues the home has as much as time goes by. Less and less infact. Unless there is a person who come forward to inform them of the defects they don't think it is a defect at all.

This could be as small as a door that sticks, missing safety chains on the screen doors and non working smoke detectors just to mention a few.

There is help available. One call away.

There is help out there for the home owners who don't have a clue as to what may be wrong or an issue with the home they live in.

Give your local Home inspector a call for a home maintenance inspection.

These issues could be as small as a shower diverter not operating properly to a electrical outlet that is a major safety issue.

Broken diverter.Loose outlet in bath.

These are simple issues but still need to be repaired. Safety is number one concern for all home owners and for Desert Sun Home Inspections.

Even home owners that are not selling their homes need a periodic home inspection.

This is why you always get a "Full Home Inspection" by a certified inspector. For the peace of mind.

Have a great day every one.

Clint this is so true. Many home owners just don't realize how run down or out of date their homes become until it's pointed out to them what needs to be fixed/repaired/replaced in order to be ready for market - or just safe living as you suggested. Great post!

Good looking receptacle!  Maybe they could pull that wiring out of there and use it as a little wall safe!

Hi Dorie,

All the home owners can say is "I was going to fix that". Maybe they should have fixed that years ago.

Have a great day in Canyon Creek.

Hi Tom,

Both you and I do this every time we inspect a home for the client. Unbiased is the best way to go.

Have a great day in Placerville.

Hi Tanya,

This is all too common. Bad or missing bulbs and the buyers think the lights don't work at all.

When listing a home, install bulbs in all the lights. Makes for a easier sale.

Have a good day in St. Thomas. Thanks for the comment.

Best, Clint McKie

Hi Debbie,

There are a ton of these  homes that are in need of repairs. Simple fixes that could end up costing the seller in the long run.

Have a nice day in Clarksville.

Hi Rob,

I hear the sellers say all the time "It's been like this for 30 years, why is it an issue now". Because it has always been an issue that had never been taken care of.

Have a good day in Bristol.

Hi Joan,

Making repairs are a good thing. making a bad repair is a bad thing, and yes I have seen a lot of bad repairs as well.

Hi Anna,

It's amazing the amount of repairs needed by the homes. Owners don't think of any repairs till it's too late or there is a dangerous situation.

Have a nice day in Phoenix.

Hi Jay,

This could be done. The wires were the only thing holding this recept on the wall.

Not good, no GFCI, GFI, ground nothing.

Have a good day in Bristow.

Hello Vegas Bob,

Thank you very much. Some times it's easy to write "to the point" posts. You get to the point rather quickly.

Have a very good day in Las Vegas.

It's sad that some homeowners wait to address the repairs right before they are going to put a home on the market.  At that point, the list of required repairs is pretty extensive.

Hi Clint.  It is amazing how the status quo exists in most homes.
