Selling your home? Get a home value report here
From the early 90s to the present, Chris has also racked up a lot of experience building and renovating homes. In that time, he’s built over 100 new homes, done hundreds of additions and kitchen/bath remodels, and that’s not to mention the dozens of whole-house renovations!
Since he’s experienced the real estate process both as a non-professional and an agent, I thought it would be interesting to pick Chris’ brain about what to expect when undergoing the inspection process, which can often be the hardest part of a transaction.
