How Home Inspections Benefit Buyers And Sellers

Today, we’ll discuss the home inspection process. The home inspection is a crucial part of the process for both the buyer and the seller, although it is designed primarily to protect the buyer.

When you’re looking at a house, you want to be able to focus on whether or not it’s the right house for you. You don’t want to worry about the nuts and bolts of the home. Once you have your house under contract, there will be a contingency that allows you to have an inspector examine the nuts and bolts for you.

Inspectors keep an eye out for safety concerns and things that will affect the home value. The inspector will climb up into the attic and check insulation, and look out for wiring issues as well, among other things.

It’s important to choose the right inspector. You want someone thorough, but also someone who won’t cause unnecessary alarm. If there is a major issue with the home, and the seller won’t fix it, you do have the option to back out of the house.

From a seller’s standpoint, it’s important to understand that you should designate some money for inspection repairs. No house passes an inspection 100%. An inspector will find something, and it’s smart to have a budget set aside. Some sellers even have an inspection ahead of time so that they can make the repairs before an offer has even been made.

The most important thing is to choose the right inspector. Listen to your real estate agent, because they will have an inspector they know and trust to work with you. If you have any questions, give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you!
