My Parents' house needs a lot of work. They have neglected it for over a decade and it shows. Rotting wood, horribly peeling paint, weeds and termites. The list goes on and on. It's ugly and very embarrassing. My question is: is there an optimal order in which these projects need to be taken care of? I'd like to hire a home inspector but my mom is a hoarder and she does not like to let people in the house. My mother gets in the way and keeps things from getting better. What should I do? I'm not handy. I'd like to hire someone for everything .
