One of the most taxing parts of the selling experience is dealing with the buyer’s inspection.
After you have negotiated a contract on your home, the buyer does a home
inspection. After reviewing the report, they send you (the seller) a copy of the report along with the request for repairs. There is typically just a few days for getting estimates and making decisions. This can be stressful for both seller and buyer.
Inspections are very detailed and include anything and everything the inspector sees that he or she deems not up to par … and some items noted will seem very picky. This doesn’t mean that the inspector intends that the buyer would ask the seller to repair everything. It’s a matter of full disclosure on the inspector’s part.
Unfortunately, the inspection report always comes at what is a period of high stress … the seller is making plans to somehow move out on time and is sometimes living out of town. Remember … it’s a process, and we just need to work through it.
The first order of business will be to get estimates so that you can make informed decisions.
Fortunately, we have a list of vendors who are honest, reliable and responsive: paint, wood repair, electrical, plumbing, heating and air, flooring, masonry, roofing, landscaping and more. This helps enormously in both preparing homes for sale and with requested inspection repairs. Our vendors do quality work at the best prices!
Just as important … You need an experienced and skilled negotiator to help guide you through the process toward the best possible outcome, and this is exactly where The Lund Group excels.
