What's wrong with this picture??
If ya'll follow me on Twitter, you will already know that this afternoon I went to a home inspection. Turns out the venting for this water heater is not connected to it in any way. Gotta love bank owned homes!
I can not emphasize enough the importance of getting a qualified professional set of eyes (a home inspector) to check out the home you are looking to purchase. Most buyers will not think to open up whatever closet the water heater is hiding in to look at it...and most would not know what they are looking at anyway. My client looked at it and had no idea anything was not as it should be!
This is just one of many things that home inspectors check out...the inspection fee is money well spent!
