It’s important that buyers don’t forget about the fact that the only negotiating point when purchasing real estate isn’t just the price. Prior to closing, numerous processes and contingencies can come into play. The one that is often responsible for causing deals to fall apart are the home inspections that lead to negotiations regarding repairs.
There are a number of aspects to Home Inspections In Orange County that can impact a real estate deal and they include the following:
- Environmental hazards like mold
- Insects and other pest infestations
- Mechanical equipment
- Septic systems
- Water quality and wells [where applicable]
Although your specific real estate transaction might not require every one of them, I always make it my job to order all of the necessary inspections. Then I also schedule those Home Inspections In Orange County and ensure that they are all completed in a timely manner. It’s important to stay on top of them, since failing to complete all inspections and challenge their results within the deadline parameters could end up resulting in an inability on the part of the buyer to take any action therein due to the results being late. It’s my responsibility to make sure that it won’t happen under any circumstances.
After Home Inspections In Orange County are completed, unexpected problems may be uncovered that you want the seller to take care of. I will take care of this second stage of negotiations by going over the results of the home inspection with you. The next step is preparing the documents that are necessary for requesting corrections by the seller. Bear in mind that the seller is generally under no obligation to correct the issues; therefore this becomes a part of the negotiations that is quite critical, especially in the face of significant issues.
The key to overcoming inspection issues and keeping the transaction on-track is for me, as your representative, to remain involved throughout every step of the deal. Remember, I do this a number of times each year, so I’ll be there for you, ensuring that we utilize every resource available to us to get the seller to make every possible concession.
