Real Estate Resources
Whether you're selling or buying a home, the last thing you want is to have problems arise after the closing. Having a professional home inspection done before you buy or market your home can alert you to any potential problems.
Look for a professional with extensive (at least 3 years') experience in reviewing residential property, and schedule the inspection within the time frame indicated in your contract of sale, usually 10-15 days. Don't hesitate to take advantage of the inspector's experience by asking questions.
If you're selling your home, schedule the inspection prior to placing your home on the market. This allows time to correct any problems before potential buyers come calling.
If you are the buyer and have scheduled the inspection within the allowable period, the seller is typically responsible for correcting any problems that are uncovered. If the work cannot be completed by the closing, you may agree to a discount in the price to cover the repair cost.
