    We paid extra for the sewer scope as advised by our realtor only to find out from a neighbor later that the previous owner had replaced all the sewer pipe a year before. For whatever reason, that wasn't divulged by the seller. Buying houses is a crap shoot - there is no perfect. One of our fun surprises was pulling out a built in bookshelf in a stupid place and finding 1970s baseball cards behind it.

    We have had to replace the sewer line on every house we have purchased, it just goes with the territory in Victorian era houses. I am gobsmacked that our Hermann house has new thermal windows in each opening and also a brand new furnace. The furnace was installed since last summer when we saw the house and the day we put an offer in. These are very good and unexpected things.

    A new furnace is a wonderful, wonderful thing, ditto the windows!!
