Take A Peek With A Pro To Get To Know Your New Home
It’s always wise to rely on a home inspection to know the home you’re buying won’t surprise you with unexpected and/or expensive repairs after settlement/closing.
We can help you find local, trusted home inspectors to be sure you get inspections done quickly after the purchase offer is accepted.
If at all possible, arrange your schedule to accompany inspectors during the home inspection. It will give you an opportunity to ask questions and understand the home before home inspection reports are issued.
In most cases, home inspectors provide a report shortly after the inspection is completed. If you have a special timeline to accommodate, inform inspectors ahead of time. If an inspection or report is delayed, we can work with the seller to ensure that your home-purchase offer isn’t canceled or delayed further.
After reports are delivered, whether or not you accompanied the inspectors, prepare a list of questions for the inspectors and arrange a phone conference with them. After your questions are answered, your real estate professional can work with you to address any new questions with the home seller.
The key information to know is what time frame you have to negotiate with the seller for price adjustments and/or repairs after the inspections are complete. Remember, in some cases, inspection reports will not yield any surprises, and the home purchase will proceed as planned to closing/settlement. In other cases, you may have just cause to walk away from a home due to inspection-report findings. Our experience and knowledge will help you make the best homebuying decisions for your situation.
