home buying this halloween

Brought to you by Bent Nail Inspections!

It’s true you easily get attracted to a person’s looks. That goes the same with homes. Ask any buyer, and they’ll tell you how easy it is to fall in love with the beauty outside. On the bright, sunny day, they’d surely say it’s made of sugar, spice, and everything nice. Oh, how perfect that must be!

But soon as the night starts creeping in, the blooming backyard is no longer in sight. You are left with the dark, ugly truth hidden in the closets. Deep, dark, and musty secrets you never even thought existed. Thought Halloween only comes in October? Our home inspection in Boise, Idaho can tell Halloween nightmares are all year round. There are two ways to uncover these hidden horrors. One, move in and wait for them to haunt you. Two, get a home inspection from our licensed home inspectors.

If you are thinking of skipping a home inspection, it can actually save you a few bucks. But, when your dream home turns into a house of terror, you’d soon realize it was never worth the risk.

Dave Ramsey’s Facebook followers shared their slices of frightening home inspection results. Dare to read these bone-chilling home buying nightmares that will surely keep you up all night. 

Black Widow Spiders? For real?

Kids love Itsy-Bitsy-Spider. Even adults sing that too. But what if there are hundreds of them? This award-winning home inspection story could be the best ever. Just as when this client found his perfect home, his home inspector found the entire basement to be infested with black widow spiders. Eeek! Though the client did continue with the purchase, he had to wait until the exterminator vacuumed each and every spider there is. Yikes!

Hickory Dickory Dock. The mouse ran up the AC?

A home seller blocked access to the attic to prevent a review of the HVAC system. The buyers, seemingly indifferent, purchased the property anyway. These new homeowners opted for a ductwork replacement and called up HVAC repairman. Upon pulling the air handler, they found over 40 dead rats with and without fur. Oooh, how long must they have been in there?

Mr. Drac? Is That You?

Enough with spiders and rats. When a home owner’s visual inspection on a 1910 Victorian home called for minor cosmetic issues, he was appalled when his home inspector found a massive bat infestation in the attic. Not only did the bats damaged the furnace, but their droppings caused mold growth as well. Thanks to Mr. Drac’s squad, the homeowner went looking for another home.

Why? Just Why?

Dealing with creepy critters is one thing, but there are people out there who could give you chills in broad daylight.

A 1925 home had been vacant for several months. Eyeing it for quite a time, a would-be buyer called for a home inspection. They discovered that thieves broke into the home’s crawlspace and stole all the copper pipe. Glad the seller agreed to replace the plumbing.

Basements and crawlspaces need some good inspection. Take it from one homebuyer who, upon moving in, discovered an unplugged freezer still full of unrefrigerated chicken, which turned into a rotting meat goo. The seller generously included this freezer in the deal but never said anything about a meat slush.

There are lots of horrifying home inspection results out there worthy of mention. But one thing is for sure; you can keep yourself away from these home buying nightmares if you call us today for a thorough home inspection in Boise, Idaho.
