Fullerton Real Estate - updates on home inspection.
Now more than ever -- home inspections are critical and even profitable. In the real estate market of today, the initial investment in the home inspection can have a terrific payback. Investing say $400.00 in a up front inspection can yield avoidance of thousands of dollars of unexpected repair costs in the near future, as well as providing substantial evidence to help negotiate repair compensation in the initial sales closing costs. Recently we have seen buyers avoid huge sewer drainage repair costs by asking for repairs right after the formal inspection. This is especially true in the older homes or the distressed properties. Even the banks on short sales are starting to accept the results of inspections as grounds for additional compensation to the buyers.
