Quoting Love my 3 kids:" An estimator/appraiser DOES NOT do this. They only tell you what the house is worth. You need a home ... [snip!] ... and anything that you can;t see with the naked eye. They can be kinda pricey but keep in mind that you get what you pay for!!!"
Quoting Moon*Siren:" my dad works for a contractor could he do that?"
Quoting Love my 3 kids:" I would stick with an actual home inspector. Contractors sometimes have no idea what they are looking ... [snip!] ... all of his inspections and it's amazing at some of this things he finds. I definitely recommend this since the house is so old."
Quoting Moon*Siren:" Yeah that would be better lol. My hubby wants to try government grants for old home restoration its a 1900s so I think we are in the range for it."
Quoting Love my 3 kids:" That would be pretty cool if you could get that. Maybe they would even spring for the inspection. Where do you live?"
Quoting Moon*Siren:" we live in williamstown ky, a small little rural town."
