The advance home inspection process in CentennialCherry
Hills Village and Greenwood
Village plays a pivotal role to both seller and buyer.
Correcting problems at an early stage
increases a home's appeal — and its selling price. An advance inspection also
sets the stage for a favorable final inspection report for the buyer (and the
buyer’s lender), expediting a sale. Yet according to home inspection experts,
approximately half the homes on the resale market today have at least one
significant defect! Advance knowledge of imperfections or
malfunctioning systems in a property helps buyers commit if the house is a
worthwhile buy. And knowing trouble spots in advance helps a seller set an
Whether you are buying or
selling, here are a few tips to help you have a trouble-free final inspectionthis fall: Minimum scope for a home inspection in CentennialCherry
Hills Village and Greenwood
Village should include roof, plumbing, foundation,
electrical wiring and central heating and/or air-conditioning. Except under
special circumstances (those would include REO or estate sales), sellers are
uniformly required to provide disclosure information about the property.
Present these disclosures to your inspector, so he can double-check known
issues first, and go over them with you during the inspection. Mold, asbestos, radon and other potentially harmful substances are
not always included in a home inspection: they require a specialized license. If you are concerned about
these elements, or live in a neighborhood where they are known to be a problem
– consider adding additional inspections.
Knowledge is power with an advance home inspection: the more you
know in advance, the stronger your negotiating position will be. Homes that are pre-certified with advance home
inspections are netting 1-2% more for the Seller. If you are preparing to buy or sell in the Denver Area this fall,

"We worked with Karen Venier for a relatively short time for a good reason: our home sold at full price within hours of hitting the market! While it’s true that the Denver housing market is “hot,” credit for the speed and ease of our transaction belongs to Karen. She was great to work with, giving us perfect advice about readying our home for sale and then expertly guiding us from offer to close. Along the way, we came to appreciate Karen for her skillful blend of professionalism and personal touches – like dropping off our favorite beverages during a particularly stressful time in our move or shoveling our driveway in subzero temps after we’d left the state (way beyond the call of duty!). Now that we’ve relocated to Wisconsin, we keep saying that we wish Karen could be our buyer’s agent here. Since that’s not possible, we’ll shout her name loudly to whoever might be looking for a home in the Denver area.
Thanks for the great work, Karen!
