1. The Rushed Decision

or: "You must have the front porch repaired before someone falls off and sues you."

or: "If you sign the contract today, we will reduce the price by $800 and give you a set of pots and pans!"

or: "Every hour we wait produces more termite damage."

HINT: If the house is on fire, call 911. If not, take the time you need to make a calm and informed decision. Help is available. Most of this information is free but even if you need to bring in an independent expert, you will find that consulting fees are a fraction of the cost of most disasters which result from rushed home repair decisions.
