If you didn’t know, my primary vocation is real estate. You can learn more about that by visiting The Silva Group. When I take clients out to see homes and they find one they really like, I tend to disappear. They’re wandering around the house, dreaming about where to put furniture and what they’ll do in their new home, so they usually don’t notice.
Where did I go? 9 times out of 10, you’d find me under the house poking around. You can learn a lot about a house by carefully observing the foundation upon which it was built. I’m no structural engineer, and I’ve never to pretended to be one, but I know a solid foundation when I see one. If I see excessive cracks, displacement, poor craftsmanship, etc., you better believe we’re moving on to the next house.
