Penny wise, pound foolish

I don't know if it's because more homes are selling now, but we're getting more calls about home inspections where there's been improper, unsafe work done in the house.
Of course it could have been done before the current owner bought the house, but then usually the problems are listed in that old home inspection report.

"Oh, I had a neighbor friend help" or "the carpenter(/handyman/painter) said he could do it, no problem".
Well, it does become a problem when you're under pressure to sell your house and the work, time and expense to correct jeopardizes the closing.

Remember that a shortcut today can come back and haunt you when you least want it. 
And don't loose sight of the big picture: safety for your house and family.
