Home Inspection

posted in: HOME BUYERS | 0

A home inspection is one of the key elements of buying a proper home. Pre-purchase home inspections reveal present condition of a home that clients are planning to purchase. Usually, it takes from 2 to 4 hours to complete a thorough inspection, depending on the size and condition of a property. An inspector goes over the main parts of a home outlining the condition that the home is in – from its foundation to the roof.

I always attend home Inspections. It is imperative to understand the real picture and see the condition that the house is in. A good home inspection can reveal many deficiencies that are important to address before buying a house to either use it to our advantage of a bargaining power, address the issue to a seller asking to fix a problem, or accept it and be prepared for future renovations once the home is purchased. Either way, at this point, we can still renegotiate with the seller and exercise our options.

At the end of the home inspection, an inspector will issue a full report with his or her findings that will be delivered to the clients in a timely manner. We will go over the report together with the inspector and will discuss our next move. At this point, as I said earlier, in case the inspection revels deficiencies,  we may address our concerns to seller agent and offer to renegotiate a price to cover the deficiency or will ask the seller to bring the condition of the home to an acceptable condition. In case the seller refuses to cooperate to fix or give a discount we may elect to exercise our legal option and exit from the contract. The contract will be terminated upon which a seller will return your deposit. The deal is off.

At the end of the day, everyone has their own vision. Our job is to assist you with your home search and home buying process in every possible way to a point where you can come to a weighted decision!
