Are you looking for your dream home? The Waypoint Real Estate Group certainly understands your excitement. Finding the home of your dreams is a big deal and we can help get you under contract. But before you start packing, you will want to get a professional home inspection. A good home inspection can give you both piece of mind and raise any red flags about the property you are about to invest in. Taking the time to have your home properly inspected is a very important part of the home buying process.
What should you expect from a home inspection? This is a great question and a very important one to understand. According to the American Society of Home Inspectors, a standard home inspection should cover central air-conditioning systems, interior plumbing, electrical systems, the roof, the attic, visible insulation, walls, ceilings, floors, windows, doors and the foundation and structural components of the home. The cost for a home inspection will vary depending on the size of the home and amenities included such as a swimming pool.
When your home inspection report is completed you may see a variety of items identified in the report. Here at Waypoint, we will carefully review each item with you to determine which ones are urgent and which ones are minor. Our team will then negotiate with the seller regarding any items that need repair.
Examples of urgent fixes could include roof repair, foundation repair, or an air conditioning unit that requires repair or replacement. These are examples of the type of repairs that are important to negotiate with the seller.
Minor repairs typically fall into the cosmetics category and we can help you decide which ones you may want to ask the seller to address.
