An Independent Assessment and Expert Help

An independent assessment of the proposed project by a home inspector, contractor, real estate professional, loan officer, designer, or architect will help you decide if the project "makes sense". Are there problems with the structure, property, location, or proposed design that should be considered? This assessment should be made by an independent party not involved in any other aspect of the construction.

As I edit this, I am reminded of the recent "sub-prime" loan fiasco. In my opinion, one of the reasons why so many people bought homes that they cold not afford and took out bad loans that were based upon bad appraisals had to do with "free" advice. The advice they got was not free, it was too often given by people who's income was based upon a commission. No sale, no commission! My advice? pay for information and get the information form qualified experts!
