This is not about the scam but for anyone thinking of buying property (or maintaining your own) I highly recommend it. I love all his shows and I have learned a LOT but this one is specifically for buying. He points out the problems then tells you how much they will really cost to fix correctly. Some are a lot more and some are a lot less.https://www.diynetwork.com/shows/holmes-buy-it-right
A few things that stood out to me -
Never go in the front door, always walk around the house and go in a back door or garage checking the foundation as you go.
Take a golf ball or marble with you to check for grading around the house and the driveway and if the floors are level.
If you can, take a heat signature camera to look for moisture leaks.
And never EVER let a "home inspector" inspect without you and go with them every step of the way from roof to crawlspace. Ask questions, take your own pics.
