Hawaii Home Inspection Insights for Buyers and Sellers!

There are so many aspects to buying a home in Hawaii, including knowing how the Hawaii environment can wreak havoc on your new investment and how those issues can come up during a home inspection.
I invited Karl Stump, owner of Top Notch Home Inspection Services, to share his knowledge and experience on what you should be aware of, a new home maintenance service he is offering and the things Hawaii has that many other locations in the US do not, such as cess pools/septic tanks, water catchment tanks, excessive moisture and rainfall, fast growing foliage, and sun damage. Karl provides very valuable knowledge in this episode.

Karl mentions a "Professional Vendor List" in the show: Here it is! https://hawaiitopnotch.com/vendors/
