Once you’ve negotiated your offer and both Buyer and Seller have agreed to terms, the buyer orders an inspection to examine the home’s condition. It’s important to share available disclosures to help the inspector better prepare. The inspection is an inexpensive way to determine if there are any major or costly repairs. It follows a standard format that investigates the home’s main systems – from plumbing to electrical to HVAC and the roof.
It is always recommended the buyer attend the inspection. This is a great learning opportunity as inspectors usually explain all deficiencies found and physically show the location of items in disrepair. Ultimately, this gives the Buyer leverage to receive concessions for fixing the repairs.
We have a short list of several amazing inspectors. If you’d like to be connected with a reputable inspector, please let us know!
