Do I Need to Get a House Survey Done?

There's no law that says you have to get your home surveyed but it's a sensible thing to do and not just for prospective buyers.

Buying:
If you're about to commit a huge chunk of money to buying a property, you want to be sure that the foundations are sound. Without a proper survey, you won't know if there's any structural damage, or whether it was built with the right regulations. Ultimately you want to make sure that you get what you paid for.

Selling:
If you get a survey done that gives an honest picture of the condition of your property, you can give it to your real estate agent and increase the chances of a quick sell because most buyers will require a survey be done before they complete. (Although be aware that buyers might still prefer to do their own independent surveys in addition to yours).

Disputes:
If you have a land dispute with your neighbor over a possible encroachment issue, you can get a survey done. This will provide certified proof of land zones etc.

There are many good reasons for getting a survey done on your property. It's almost like an insurance policy against potential future problems. Your new home might look great on the outside but for all your know, needs thousands of dollars of work done to it.
It pays to be prepared.

There is a buick for sale in Philadelphia,Pa. and I live in that city and I sent the person 3 e mails that I was interested in his car and would like to see the car. After three e mails still no answer. What can I do? This might be some kind if scam? Respectfully Ron Faries


Hi!

First check if there is an item number (12 digits) and if there is then locate it on eBay.com or at motors.ebay.com. Check if there's a listing like that. You will need to log in to your eBay account so that you can bid or buy it now the item. If you don't have an eBay account, then you need to create one.

If you see the item in a different site, do not continue. eBay will not cover that item under the buying protection if it's not listed on their site.


Here's how the REAL transactions work on eBay:
1. buyer sees the item listed on eBay
2. buyer buys/bids on the item ( Checking an reading the item description with an understanding of the item that they want to purchase)
3. buyer wins item (the buyer can now request the phone number of the seller if the buyers has concerns about the item.)
4. buyer's name appears as winner on the listing
5. item number appears in "Items Won" in buyer's My eBay page
6. seller sends an invoice
7. buyer pays the seller (buyer does not pay eBay)
8. seller ships item/ buyer picks up item


I hope this helps. Have a good one! Don't forget to rate!

PS: Also, do not send check, money order, wire or bank transfer. Check eBay's Accepted Payment methods.
