Your Questions About Small Appliance Repair Training

Michael asks…

I have submitted an offer to buy a foreclosed home here in AZ. The house needs some repair work?

such as: missing appliances, dirty swimming pool, tile/carpet in one of the closets, a few shingles on the roof and the wood siding on the outside of the house needs replacing in two very small areas. My real estate agent told me these repairs could keep the loan from going through because it is an FHA.
Is this correct? What does the bank look for in an inspection? Can the repairs be made before the inspection? My agent has not been helpful in answering my questions and seems to give me more reasons why the loan can’t or won’t go through rather than reasons why it can or how it could. I do not want to get financing for the repairs as I would like to do them myself if possible.

James Conley answers:

Foreclosed homes are usually owned by the bank and the bank will not do repairs. FHA loans do not let the buyer get a second loan for any repairs. You need to have your own home inspector (This must be paid upfront around $450) check the property as he will give you a full report so that you know exactly what repairs are needed. The inspector checks the roof, any cracks in inside/outside walls, foundations,basements if there is one, attic insulation, proper wiring and receptacles (kitchen need GFI’s),etc. If there are missing appliances those you would have to take care of as well as the dirty pool. The pool could be inspected for leaks, drain problems, etc. Usually if a pool is drained and no upkeep, it could be a large problem later after closing. No repairs can be done before inspection by you or the bank. Please be Buyer Beware with this property. You can do the repairs only after you take possession of the property.

Somewhere on your contract (please re-read all the fine print) it should state property sold “AS IS”.

Your agent really doesn’t know anything in regards to what your asking and the bank is not legally bound to repair or replace anything.

He doesn’t know how loans actually are done as he was probably trained on basics only.

I bought a foreclosure but I had an advantage of knowing more than the average buyer. See Below…..

Lisa asks…

what is this?

I am a dynamic figure, often seen scaling walls and
crushing ice. I have been known to remodel train
stations on my lunch breaks, making them more
efficient in the area of heat retention. I translate
ethnic slurs for Cuban refugees, I write award-winning
operas, I manage time efficiently. Occasionally, I
tread water for three days in a row.

I woo women with my sensuous and godlike trombone
playing, I can pilot bicycles up severe inclines with
unflagging speed, and I cook Thirty-Minute Brownies in
twenty minutes. I am an expert in stucco, a veteran in
love, and an outlaw in Peru.

Using only a hoe and a large glass of water, I once
single-handedly defended a small village in the Amazon
Basin from a horde of ferocious army ants. I play
bluegrass cello, I was scouted by the Mets, I am the
subject of numerous documentaries. When I’m bored, I
build large suspension bridges in my yard. I enjoy
urban hang gliding. On Wednesdays, after school, I
repair electrical appliances free of charge.

I am an abstract artist, a concrete analyst, and a
ruthless bookie. Critics worldwide swoon over my
original line of corduroy evening wear. I don’t
perspire. I am a private citizen, yet I receive fan
mail. I have been caller number nine and have won the
weekend passes. Last summer, I toured New Jersey with
a traveling centrifugal-force demonstration. I bat
.400. My deft floral arrangements have earned me fame
in international botany circles. Children trust me.

I can hurl tennis rackets at small moving objects with
deadly accuracy. I once read Paradise Lost, Moby Dick,
and David Copperfield in one day and still had time to
refurbish an entire dining room that evening. I know
the exact location of every food item in the
supermarket. I have performed several covert
operations for the CIA. I sleep once a week; when I do
sleep, I sleep in a chair. While on vacation in
Canada, I successfully negotiated with a group of
terrorists who had seized a small bakery. The laws of
physics do not apply to me.

I balance, I weave, I dodge, I frolic, and my bills
are all paid. On weekends, to let off steam, I
participate in full-contact origami. Years ago, I
discovered the meaning of life but forgot to write it
down. I have made extraordinary four course meals
using only a mouli and a toaster oven. I breed
prizewinning clams. I have won bullfights in San Juan,
cliff-diving competitions in Sri Lanka, and spelling
bees at the Kremlin. I have played Hamlet, I have
performed open-heart surgery, and I have spoken with
Elvis.

But I have not yet gone to college.

James Conley answers:

That was very, very good. You could very well become a very good fictional writer; so why are you on here???
Get going and put your God-given talent to good use!

Hey does that small bakery in Canada you saved do vanilla cupcakes? I have to know! Oh and would you be interested in selling me any of those clams?
