You think this could be the one. The home you’ve been hunting for, with just the right amount of space, and the master bathroom of your dreams. You like the neighborhood, and think you’re ready to make an offer. But before you sign on the dotted line, you want to make sure there are no lurking time bombs that might turn your dream home into a nightmare. Buyers can be blinded by the gleam of a stainless steel kitchen, but a faulty gas line could burn a hole in your finances for years to come.
From a few missing shingles to a massive termite infestation, you could be shocked at the things going on with a home right under your nose.
