Let's Talk Albuquerque!


Ever Play "skip a rope"? You could with this power line.

Pay close attention th hazards around your homes.  As Clint McKie discovered during one of his routine home inspection, the utility wire was way too low for comfort...and presented a hazard to children living at that address..  Thanks to Clint for bringing this to our attention

Ever Play "skip a rope"? You could with this power line.

When we inspect homes for our client's we are diligent about the safety of the buyers or sellers.

Even if the seller has an issue with safety. And they are present at the inspection, I will tell them about the safety issue so they can get the concern resolved as soon as possible.

On a recent Home inspection in Carlsbad, New Mexico. I found this power line in the back yard that was so low, I could actually reach up and touch the power line. It was about eight foot from the ground.

Way, way too low to be safe. Not only  for the residents of the home but for any children that may visit the home.

At Desert Sun Home Inspections in Carlsbad, New Mexico. We strive for the best inspection we can provide. And safety is paramount when inspecting.

Lets take a look at this power line that is way too low.

Power line too low.

It was simply amazing the power company would even allow this home to have such a low power line. Even the power company has limits on how low the power line can be.

Low power line.

There is no Sixteen foot rules here. And there are no Five foot rules in play either.

I hope the seller will have the issue resolved before the home goes to closing.

Have a great day every one, and have a wonderful New Years Celebration.

Remember everything in moderation.

Hi C.Lloyd,

I have been inspecting homes for a long time. Every now and then I get a wake up call for the buyers and the sellers.

I can't imagine why the seller had not had this repaired a long time ago. They are an elderly couple but I'm sure they had been in the back yard and had seen the low power lines. It's simply mind boggling the things I find when inspecting. Have a very happy New Years celebration.

Have a great weekend in the Duke City my friend.

All my best, Clint McKie
