Why Get a Home Inspection When Selling Your Home?Thinking about selling your home? If you're like most home sellers, you have probably lived in your home for more than 5 years. It is in these last 5 years some major changes have occurred in the sale process of a home.Sellers Disclosure- The biggest change is the requirements of providing a "SELLERS PROPERTY CONDITION DISCLOSURE." You, the home owner must list all the known defects in the home.Home Inspectors- The home inspector is usually hired by the Buyer and arrives at your property after a contract is negotiated to inspect and list any defects, questionable areas, upgrade suggestions and maintenance.When significant problems are found by the Home Inspector the Buyer may:-Terminate the contract.-Or ask for inflated amounts to have the problems fixed.Either way your house is back on the market and the problem is still there!More sellers are getting a home inspection in order to repair or determine the condition of their home and to use it as a sales tool. A Seller's inspection will virtually eliminate all the hassles and the blown deals inspections cause when the Buyer brings their inspector. It gives the leverage back to the Seller.If an inspection is performed and significant damage or defects are found there will be disappointment, but no hysteria or regret. You can then fix any problems, and call for a re-inspection of the home. The home inspector returns a clean report. Next, a Buyer enters a contract agreement with the Seller. The Buyer will have the option of selecting another home inspection done by a Home Inspector of the buyersâ€™ choice but there should be no major issues that arise from the second inspection.February 03 2009 - Anderson00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
