I am planning on purchasing a home from a US Home community...provided it passes inspection. Is there anything that US Home won't tell me, something that they don't have to mention or disclose, but should? This could either be regarding a potential problem with the community or the area; or this could pertain to a perk or something to write into the contract that would add to my value. What do you think?

I am not sure about the US Home Community, but my only advice is to get a good REALESTATE attorny. Check around they are worth the fee. I paid $350 when I recently closed. It takes a lot of stress out of signing all those documents.

My suggestion is to hire a home inspector who is NOT a building contractor (conflict of interest). Ask him what type of tests he does on the plumbing, electrical and gas in the home you are interested in purchasing. Do not hire the home inspector who just drives up takes a looksee and says everything is fine.
