Today I want to talk about a few specifics regarding the home inspection process when you are buying or selling a home.

When you’re buying a home, we always recommend getting a home inspection done, even if it’s a brand-new home. There are always going to be issues that you won’t be able to see with the naked eye. A home inspector will check the foundation all the way up to the roof to make sure everything is in proper working order.



 Keep the repair list to major items only.

When you ask a seller for repairs, try to keep the list to major items only. A blemish on the wall or carpet isn’t worth getting hung up about. Your inspector will go through the home with a fine-toothed comb and be able to tell you any and every imperfection.

If you’re a home seller, don’t freak out about the inspection list. A lot of the items are minor. Realize that the inspection is just a part of the home buying process and you will have the opportunity to make repairs. In fact, you might be able to save quite a bit in repairs by having a home inspection completed before you list your home.

If you have any questions for us about home inspections or anything else related to real estate, don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
