I recently had a inspection on a FSBO house other day. I got to the house about half hour early and introduced myself to the couple who owned the house. The wife looked and acted nervous asking if I pass or fail houses I inspect, I told her I report on present condition of the house and do not pass or fail a house  or building I inspect. After that was over I begun to ask the couple questions about the condition of their house. They stated the house had been newly renovated. I started inspecting around the house and saw all renovations were done only on interior of the house. Nothing on exterior of the house, there was no curb appeal to this house. If this couple had hire an inspector or engineer prior to putting their house on the market. They would have found out everything they needed to fix on the house. Second thing they should have done was hire a appraiser to find out what their house is worth. I personally would never sell any property without a real estate sales associate or broker.

I am a real estate agent and I own property thousands of miles from where I live. I never buy or sell real estate without the help of a professional agent, either.
