Buyer Beware in Bend

In today's litigious society it is time for full disclosure.  Seller's are required by law to disclose any know defects whether hidden or otherwise.  One case where this is not true is with BANK FORECLOSURESBanks sell their properties in "as is" condition so it's up to the buyer to make all necessary inspections to protect themselves.

Whether buying bank owned homes or homes direct from the owner I always advise my clients to have a professional inspection.  A good professional inspector will inspect under the home, on the roof and everything in between.  I sold one home that had not had any insulation blown into the attic!  Wonder why the seller's heat bills were high!

The bottom line is that you should always have a home inspected before you close escrow.
