Should you hire a Home Inspector?

House 45

Home inspections are an essential part of the home buying process. It allows you to get impartial information about the house you are about to buy so you can avoid potentially pricey pitfalls. When you make an offer on your home, you can request an inspection contingency. This will allow you to back out of your offer without penalty within a certain timeframe if you are dissatisfied with the home inspection and are unable to resolve any inspection issues with the sellers. It should be noted that most inspections are able to be negotiated successfully between the buyers and sellers.

A qualified home inspector will pinpoint health and safety problems and look for any conditions that need specialized attention. An inspection includes physical elements such as roof, walls, foundation, insulation, attic and basement. It includes heating and cooling systems, plumbing, electrical and even examination of appliances. A home inspector provides a comprehensive report that details any issues found in the inspected home.

There are 3 things to remember about home inspection reports:

  1. A home inspection is not a warranty. The report details the issues found on the day of the inspection and cannot predict issues that may arise in the future. No matter how skilled your home inspector is, he can’t see the future and predict when an aging system may fail.
  2. No home is perfect– Even newly constructed houses can have issues. Some home buyers make this mistake of not having their new house inspected by a professional.
  3. It’s not pass or fail–  The home inspection report gives you all the details you need to help you make a decision whether or not to proceed with the sale of the home, negotiate with the seller to have the issues fixed or to reduce the  purchase price.

The Bottom Line

The home inspections can reveal problems that you may negotiate with the sellers to fix before the closing or before you move in. It may cost you some money, but you’ll be glad you did it because, in the long run, every penny spent is worth it. Home inspection can give you peace of mind that the home you are about to move into is safe and in a good shape.

IS SELLING “FOR SALE BY OWNER” A GOOD IDEA?

Some sellers think that selling “For Sale By Owner” (FSBO) will save them thousands of dollars by not paying agents’ commission. However, there are several reasons why pursuing a FSBO might not be a good idea.

  • FSBO Homes Pricing Problems- One of the most common reasons FSBO don’t sell is because homeowners tend to overprice their homes. They are not aware of the current housing prices and changing market conditions as well as an experienced Realtor. Real estate agents, however, have an understanding of the current market conditions and data about recent sales in your neighborhood that can be used to price your home appropriately.
  • FSBO Marketing vs. Realtor Marketing- Homeowners often underestimate the time and work that goes into marketing a home. Agents are experts in marketing homes. They can pool resources to maximize exposure and have marketing budgets where homeowners usually don’t have.  With their experience, they have an idea what type of marketing will work to sell your home in the shortest amount of time for the most money.
  • Tricky Negotiation and Legal Paperwork- Homeowners don’t understand the paperwork involved in the sale of a home. Often, they are unaware of the mandatory industry disclosures and regulations, which can lead to costly legal problems. An experienced real estate agent knows what to do to address standard real estate contracts, closing documents, and appraisal issues. They can handle all the delicate nuances of negotiations between sellers and buyers. Having no emotional attachment to the house means real estate agents can be nonsubjective and negotiate the sale of the house effectively.It doesn’t come as a surprise anymore that the percentage of people doing FSBO have dropped down from 19% to   9% over the two decades.

Bottom Line

The typical FSBO home sold for $184,000 compared to $230,000 for agent-assisted home sales. Before making the jump to becoming a FSBO seller, sit down with a real estate professional so they can answer any questions you may have about getting your home sold.  A qualified real estate agent brings expertise to a complex transaction with many legal and financial pitfalls.
