BUYING OR SELLING A HOUSE/BUILDING?
One of the biggest investment one makes in his/her life is buying a home. Los Angeles county real estate dates back to over 100 years ago and many private houses have been standing for a long time.
If you are a realtor buying or selling properties for your client you should inspect the house foundation. You should ensure that the house foundation is structurally sound and stable.
As a buyer, finding an issue with the foundation can save your client hidden costs that can be avoided. A flawed foundation can be a costly expense to repair. As a seller, you are responsible for these costs retrospectively.
