The Role Of A Home Inspector

Before you close on a home, a home inspector will conduct a review of the property to ensure safety, let you know what needs to be repaired or what will need to be replaced in the near future, and more.

A home inspector is hired by the buyer, and examines the house thoroughly for non-functioning systems, damages and repairs that may be needed. A thorough inspection covers various items, and typically takes a few hours depending on the size of your home.

What do home inspectors look for? Here are the most common things a home inspector will check during the home inspection process:

• Foundation and structure
• General construction overall
• Plumbing
• Electrical
• Heating and cooling
• Roof
• Windows and doors
• Kitchen and bathroom
• Appliances — Be sure to turn on utilities in a vacant home.
• Interior walls and ceiling
• Air conditioning
• Basement
• Ventilation and drainage
• Gutters and leaders
• Garages and carports
• Patios and decks
• Walks and driveways
• Lawn sprinklers
• Pools and spas
• Termites and wood destroying organisms

During the home inspection process, keep in mind that every house is going to have issues. Once you know about repairs and potential problems, it is then up to you to decide what is a deal breaker.

It’s important to have a home inspector for a few reasons:
• Knowledge — Know what you’re buying.
• Peace of mind — Know you’re making a sound buying decision.
• Fewer surprises — Limits the number of problems you may find after moving in. If an issue is uncovered, there is still time to negotiate with seller to have them pay for repairs.
• Education — Learn the basics of your new home, such as main systems.

How To Make An Offer On A House

Once you’ve found a house you’re ready to purchase, the next step is making an offer to the seller. There are many factors to consider when deciding how much to offer.

When deciding how much to offer, you should:

• Determine the market — If you’re making an offer in a buyer’s market, you may be able to negotiate with a seller because there are fewer buyers.
• Find out how much the seller paid.
how to make an offer on a house• Determine the seller’s mortgage balance — If the mortgage balance is high, the seller may be more motivated to sell.
• Look at comparable sales — Take a look at the sales price of properties in the area that are similar in age and size.
• Look at list price to sales price ratios — This will show you what homes were listed at and how much they eventually sold for in your area. This will give you an idea of what percentage below the asking price a seller may accept. Ask your real estate agent for this report.
• Check out the average square foot cost – See if the home is listed above or below the average cost per square foot.
• See how many days the home has been listed on the market or if it was relisted — If the home has been on the market longer than 30 days, the seller may be willing to negotiate.

Stephanie, a real estate agent, advises: “You want the offer to be clean, you want to ask for the important things. You don’t want to nit-pick on the offer. You don’t want to give the listing agent too many things to counter you back at if you’re going to be in a multiple offer situation or if it’s a very competitive situation. Whenever I write an offer, I give the agent—the listing agent—everything that they need, so they want to pick my offer. I will include verification of funds via bank statement from my client, verification of a credit report of my client, and a written preapproval letter”.
