Home inspection in Waukesha County Real Estate versus Home Humiliation

Home inspection in Waukesha County

Wow, They accepted our offer! We are going to be homeowners! So many times that is the beginning of a lifetime of joys and memories.  But, sometimes, unexpecting buyers and sellers are confronted with something so aweful, so unexpected that it turns a love story into a horror picture--the home inspectionin Waukesha County.  I am blessed as a realtor to have two super inspectors that I work with.  They take their job very seriously and are thorough, consciencious, but realistic with the buyers they serve.  They point out big and small issues but are careful to explain the difference. 

The Stas Team has also seen inspectors that do not inspect homes, they humiliate them.  What does that mean?  They go board by board and represent each and every scratch, bruise or blemish as a clear defect in the property.  In the current economy, there are many homes that are selling that are not perfect and show their age.  Most times buyers are anxious regarding the condition of their potential home so when an inspector turns the Home inspection in Waukesha County into a shooting gallery where everybody loses.  Defects for Waukesha county Real estate are defined as

“a condition that would have a significant adverse effect on the value of the Property; that would significantly impair the health or safety of future occupants of the Property; or that if not repaired, removed or replaced would significantly shorten or adversely affect the expected normal life of the premises.”

Whether any item listed is actually a defect is determined on a case-by-case basis. When an inspector goes beyond the value, life shrinking or safety issues, then it becomes a home humiliation.

As the listing or the selling agent, it is critical that an honest review of theHome inspection is done.  Neither side wins if the seller is charged with repairs that are no more than maintenece issues.  The agent should come to a home inspection in Waukesha County prepared to address the results of the inspection.  No matter whose agent the realtor is, home humiliation should be honestly handled. 

  • Call the maintenance issues Just that. 
  • Have trades folk information for the necessary repairs. 
  • Read the report carefully and sit down with your client and review options together. 

Home inspections provide a great service to buyers and sellers. They allow Homeowners to start their new adventure with some security.  Overreaching by a home inspector does not serve anyone in the transacton. Do not allow a home inspection in Waukesha County to become Home humiliation.
