Knowledge Is Power With An Advance Inspection

Knowledge Is Power With An Advance Inspection

The advance home inspection process in  Centennial  Cherry 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 attractive price.

   
 Whether you are buying or selling, here are a few tips to help you have a trouble-free final inspection this fall:

Minimum scope for a home inspection in Centennial    Cherry 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, give me a call 720-446-6301!
