Still, unless you trust this "friend" with your life, or in this case, $25,000 of your hard earned dough, I would STILL pay the $100-$150 to get it checked out elsewhere, away from any biased opinions and potential money making afterthoughts. Sorry to sound skeptical, but this a downpayment-on-a-house kinda dough, and you can't be TOO careful!!!
Just my .02.
Good luck! If it works out, you got the ultimate deal of a lifetime and Congratuations!
