When you are a buyer, the home inspection is one of the most important things you need to have done during the due diligence period. You need to know what you are buying.
When you get the inspection report – usually 30-50 pages – don’t be overwhelmed. Most of those pages are pictures! And we are here to help you navigate through it and focus on what is most important.
In this time of low inventory, sellers are less likely to make many repairs so we advise asking for health and safety issues to be fixed. Some examples of these are mold, an overloaded electrical panel, high levels of radon, rodents in the attic, etc.
The goal is for the transaction to be a win-win situation for the buyer and seller. After all, you will be sitting across the table from each other at the closing.
Call us at The Peters Company to make your due diligence period run smoothly – after all, we went through it over 200 times in 2017!
