  1. i've learned from renovation shows; stay away from asbestos abatement, foam roof insulation, lead paint, water & foundation damage, wood ants or termites, electric & water pipe age & capacity, roof leak. Good info to learn from others on the internet

  2. Wow… Im 30 years old I was just pre-approved for 200k Im a business owner….. But boy was I clueless about first time home buying. THANK YOU SO MUUUUCHHHHH!!! That one person who needed this video was me.

  3. I'm not buying a home yet, I plan to do so in the next two years or so and until then, I am doing a bunch of research on home buying. This video was super super helpful so thank you so much. My only question is: How much of this does not apply to buying a brand new home. I'm assuming that the inspection and the contingencies would not be a thing in that situation; but I would still like some clarification. THANK YOU!
