Excerpt from Home Inspector Insurance Cost - A Cheap Form Of Insurance :
My son decided to not spend the money & repair it. He wound up selling the house for the same price he paid for it 7 years prior. It cost him $32,000 or more in equity and appreciation. The sad part is that all of this could have been avoided...If he only would have asked for a little help. A home inspection would have turned up all of these concerns BEFORE he signed on the dotted line. How many of you would have gladly invested 300 bucks to avoid losing $ 32,000.00? I can assure you he will NEVER make that same mistake again.

That's right -- he bought it without having it inspected by a certified home inspector. First, he noticed the little quirks about the house... like how the doors and windows didn't close properly. Then there were the drafts in the winter that could not be sealed. Finally, there was the old "marble on the countertop test". You would not believe how fast it rolled down to the other end and under the fridge. It turns out that the builder would not have won any ethics awards. Instead of dumping all of the construction garbage...he merely buried it of all places...under the front right corner of the house. As you can imagine, after a few years the garbage began to decompose & the house began to settle. And settle it did. Believe it or not... upon closer examination I found that I could stick my entire head under the foundation at one place. Unfortunately for him, it was a very expensive lesson. A lesson that cost him over $32,000 of lost appreciation when it came time to for him to sell. For you see, this house had some major structural problems. Problems -- that could only be fixed by driving (4) concrete filled posts into the ground 80 ft deep and jacking up the entire house.
