Tweetable Quotes:

 “It all starts when you're purchasing the property. It all starts with your due diligence… The other thing is, you've got some properties that are connected to the city sewer, so they have septic tanks, and many people don't do the septic tank inspection. Sometimes that's critical.” - Ayal Joshua

“You have to exercise the letter buyer beware, you know, the caveat emptor. Do your due diligence, do the inspection.” - Ayal Joshua
