New Home inspection Hobbs New Mexico 88242 Contrary to popular belief by a lot of Realtors in My areas.  A brand new never lived in home needs to have a home inspection.

Where do you start with the issue on this home. Shaking my head. There are times when I have to stand back and take a deep breath and try to find the words to install in my report. I can hear the conversation already. "I want a garage". But we have a carport honey, that's not the sa...

Making changes could cost you. Desert Sun Home inspections Hobbs, N.M.  So you want to heat the garage. What do you want to heat it with?

Stone roofs and Pipes. Desert Sun Home inspections Hobbs N.M. As Inspections go I don't get nervous about too much. But I do dislike inspecting a gravel topped home. These stones on the roof add un needed weight to the structure. And in most cases it will cause the decking to start to sag in ...
