What really matters?

Buying a home? The process can be stressful. A home inspection is supposed to give you peace of mind, but often has the opposite effect. You will be asked to absorb a lot of information in a short time. This often includes a written report, checklist, photographs, environmental reports, and what the inspector himself says during the inspection. All this combined with the seller's disclosure and what you notice yourself makes the experience even more overwhelming. What should you do? Relax. Most of your inspection will be maintenance recommendations, life expectancies and minor imperfections. These are nice to know about.

1) Major defects. An example of this would be a structural failure.
2) Things that lead to major defects. A small roof-flashing leak, for example.

Let me tell you how you can easily obtain full asking price for your home.

The biggest mistake that most Sellers often make is waiting for the buyers home inspection day to assess the condition of their home. One of the main reasons that home purchase transactions fall apart is due to defects that materialize during the course of the buyers home inspection. Every buyer has a personal perspective as to which types of defects constitute deal breakers. Some buyers are not deterred by issues as large as major foundation cracks, while others will run from seemingly routine disclosures. Some walk away at the mere mention of asbestos in th…

Purchasing a home?

Locating any defects now is crucial because buying that home does not give you a money-back guarantee a buyer receives with most purchases.
