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 can make the experience even more overwhelming. What should you do?
First, call Global Home Inspections. Then, relax and let Global take care
Why should you go with Global? Because we at Global have a lot of experience and will take good care of you and your home. Global is also a member of National Association of Certified Home Inspectors. Our membership in N.A.C.H.I. means that we have passed a comprehensive, all inclusive test
assuring that we are adept at a variety of the home inspection service functions.
Most of your inspection with Global will be maintenance recommendations, life expectancies and minor imperfections. These are nice to know about. However, the issues that really matter will fall into these four categories:
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.
3)Things that may hinder your ability to finance, legally occupy, or insure the home.
4)Safety hazards, such as an exposed, live buss bar at the electric panel.
Anything in the above categories needs to be addressed. Often a serious problem can be corrected inexpensively to protect both life and property (especially in categories 2 and 4).
Most sellers are honest and are often surprised to learn of defects uncovered during an inspection.
However, realize that sellers are under no obligation to repair everything mentioned in the report. No home is perfect. Keep things in perspective. Don't kill your deal over things that don't matter. It is inappropriate to demand that a seller address deferred maintenance, conditions already listed on the seller's disclosure, or nit-picky items.
Having your home inspected by a NACHI inspector before you list is the recommendation found in the new edition of the book, Sell Your Home For More by Nick Gromicko.
Eventually your buyers are going to conduct an inspection. You may as well know what they are going to find by getting there first. The author points out that having an inspection performed ahead of time helps in many other ways:
It allows you to see your home through the eyes of a critical third-party.
It helps you to price your home realistically.
It permits you to make repairs ahead of time so that defects don't become negotiating stumbling blocks later.
There is no delay in obtaining the Use and Occupancy permit.
You have the time to get reasonably priced contractors or make the repairs yourself, if qualified.
It may encourage the buyer to waive the inspection contingency.
It may alert you of items of immediate personal concern, such as radon gas or active termite infestation.
It may relieve prospect's concerns and suspicions.
It reduces your liability by adding
professional supporting documentation to your disclosure statement and
alerting you to immediate safety issues before agents and visitors tour your home.
Copies of the inspection report along with receipts for any repairs should be made available to potential buyers.
