Quoting Love my 3 kids:" An estimator/appraiser DOES NOT do this. They only tell you what the house is worth. You need a home ... [snip!] ... and anything that you can;t see with the naked eye. They can be kinda pricey but keep in mind that you get what you pay for!!!"


my dad works for a contractor could he do that?

I would stick with an actual home inspector. Contractors sometimes have no idea what they are looking for. My husband uses an infrared camera in all of his inspections and it's amazing at some of this things he finds. I definitely recommend this since the house is so old.

That would be pretty cool if you could get that. Maybe they would even spring for the inspection. Where do you live?

My husband knows an inspector that is in that area. If you want to look him up his web address is www.b4uclose.com He is highly qualified according to my husband but he isn't sure if he does the infrared. Good Luck!

I agree two hundred percent. When I bought my house BDs uncle was a contractor and he "inspected" the house. Turns out the took leaked, bad and there wasold in the ceiling from it. It cost a fuck ton to replace.
