A Carpenter's Advice on Buying A Home
By Greg Evans

Size: 5x8     Pages: 180


A Carpenter's Advice on Buying a Home is a concise, practical book on how to identify quality when buying a home.

Whether considering a modest rambler or something more elaborate, this quick read will enable the prospective homebuyer to recognize key features that distinguish a low maintenance, comfortable living home from one that will involve on-going repairs and headaches (saving thousands of dollars). To facilitate the process, a checklist is included to guide the homebuyer.



The reader will learn:

  • What pitfalls can disqualify a home
  • What’s lurking/lacking in newer homes
  • How to evaluate a home's electrical, plumbing, heating, and air conditioning systems
  • What kind of siding and roofing is best
  • How to do an EASY personal home inspection (saving $$$ by avoiding multiple home inspections)
  • And more vital information
