ne of the hardest things for homebuyers and homeowners to come to terms with is that no house is perfect. As one home inspector liked to say, "An old house has older problems, but new houses have problems, too."
Moving into a brand new space is magical. And many homeowners want to keep it that way. But inevitably, the shiny new stainless steel sink gets scratched, as do the chrome bath fixtures. The grout in the floors gets stained and windows get dirty. Your kids leave handprints on the walls and here or there you might find the wood molding has cracked or the paint is peeling.
