Homeowner Series Vol. 1, Identifying Problems throughout your home, a Home Inspection resource
This informative DVD is wonderful because it shows you, the homeowner, how to walk through your home, or properties, and find damaged areas without spending needless thousands. This resource is perfect for anyone planning on buying a new house, or just wanting to find problems in their own home! Just think about the money you will save not having to consult someone else every time a question comes up. Unlike other movies and books that only describe the problem, Identifying Problems actually shows you first hand what these damaged spots really look like. There is footage taken from over 100 different homes!
Don't be confused, Identifying Problems is not meant to replace a Contractor or Home Inspector's walk-through, but it is here to enable you to ask the right questions and to know what to bring to their attention.
Identifying Problems is made for the sole purpose of teaching homeowners how to find hidden problems in their home that they are unaware of, and therefore neglecting. Instead of being totally clueless in most aspects of a home, Identifying Problems gives you a visual checklist of everything to look for. This way, you are already pretty sure about a property or a problem before you spend time and money having a professional come and take a look.
Identifying Problems is a must have for homeowners, future homeowners, and property owners! Get yours today!
From the Contributor
The most current and up-to-date Home Inspection movie on the market, Identifying Problems contains tons of information gathered from professional builders, home inspectors, building scientists and government building codes. All of this important information is neatly organized onto this amazing DVD.
The movie is presented in 16 main sections that include additional sub-sections totaling around 120 topics! All together, you have over 105 minutes of Home Inspection information!
Consider this... Say you want some information on your Asphalt Fiberglass roof because you are not sure if you need to replace it. All you have to do is go to the main menu and select "Roofs." The Roofs sub-topic menu will then be displayed. Now just select the sub-topic "Asphalt Fiberglass" and you will be taught everything you need to know in order to inspect your roof!
Have you ever wanted a Contractor or a handyman to come by and find problem areas in your home? Or have you neglected to call a home inspector to view the properties you are looking at because of the cost involved with each-and-every inspection? If you have, then this DVD is for you because Identifying Problems does just that!
Top customer reviews
I had bought this dvd just to see if it could help beginner's or first home buyer's learn the basics. This dvd is not even useful for something as basic as that. If you want to learn about real estate or repairs then buy well-known books on the topic written by authors who are experts in their field. Don't waste your time with books/dvds written by ghost writers that copies sections of other people's work and pastes them together to create a "book" or "dvd".
If you're not sure which books are the best then go to your public library and browse them to decide which books you want to buy on Amazon.com. Amazon is a great place to buy books/dvds when there are honest product reviews. Unlike the exaggerated 5 star reviews written about this dvd. After viewing this dvd it's obvious that the only reviewer's comment that I should have believed before my purchase was the one that wrote:
"It's a headache to buy online with only perfect customer comments to base your decision on and then later being disappointed with your purchase.You have to be weary about products sold online with customer comments that are all positive and no negative."
With hindsight I agree with that statement completely!
Look at the obvious exaggerations and comments from the glowing positive "reviews" - you would think they watched this dvd and found the cure for cancer!
"Absolutely Outstanding!!, absolutely awesome, enormous about of information in it, Amazing, I can't wait till they come out with more"...
Do yourself a favor and search through Amazon.com for well-known and established authors and get a good book on your topic of interest. Always be very wary if you find all glowing, exaggerated, positive reviews.
Watching this reminds me of the adage " people do not see, when they do not have a language to describe". I have a much more critical eye now, and am much more fluent in the language of identifying problems I may be stuck with for a long time. I look at this video each time my wife and I go out looking for new places to live. I can't wait for the subsequent "how to fix..." volumes.
Additionally, this DVD would have been an unbelievable resource to have when I was buying my first house. It's an absolute must for any new homeowners or homebuyers. The animated diagrams are also pretty interesting. You get to see how a lot of thing function in the house. Overall I give this DVD 5 stars.
I'm a house wife and recently got interested in learning more about my home and how to fix things around the house. I am SO glad that I got this DVD. It's so easy to watch and real professional. I couldn't believe it was only 20 dollars! I also bought the toilet repair DVD. That's great too. I can't wait till they come out with more.
I would definetly buy this DVD if you want to know how to find what's wrong with your home. Real Quality. Super fast shipping too. Altogether excellent!
