Bobbie Scopa’s First Home Story

The Story

This hilarious first home story from my great friend Bobbie Scopa reminds me how much the home buying process has changed over the years. Back in the day, professional home inspectors didn’t even exist. Bobbie’s story helps explain why the professional home inspection industry became a thing.


  • “The pipe coming out of the wall has a flame about a foot long shooting out…”
  • “We haven’t even left the kitchen yet!”

And Bobbie gives you her first-time home buyer tips learned from buying a dozen homes over the years, “Buying a house is a series of compromises.”

The podcast finishes with Bobbie telling you what it’s like to live on a boat in Portland.
