97: When Buying a Starter Home Goes Terribly Wrong - Chris Harrison
By Sam Marks / Johnny FD
Chris Harrison and his girlfriend just got their new home. But, instead of cutting down expenses from renting, they spent more on fixing the house they just bought. While the inspection went perfectly well, they discovered so many shortfalls few days after they moved in. The house failed in so many aspects that the couple had to take legal action against the people who apparently ripped them off. On this episode, Chris shares the appalling experience of buying their first home. He enumerates the flaws they discovered in the house including the electrical system, the plumbing, and the termite infestation. He sheds light on the idea of buying a starter home and gives his takeaways from the experience that will surely help those who are planning to buy their own house.
