HOME PREPARATION TO PLACE ON MARKET

By
Real Estate Agent with AIRBORNE REALTY

 

DO YOU PLAN TO HAVE REPAIR WORK DONE BEFORE YOU PUT YOUR HOUSE ON THE MARKET?

YOU MIGHT WANT TO GET A HOME INSPECTION PRIOR TO HAVING ANY WORK DONE.

JUST EMAIL ME TO GET A LIST OF CERTIFIED AND STATE APPROVED INSPECTORS.

MOST BUYERS ARE NOW HAVING INSPECTIONS DONE AS PART OF THEIR OFFER. BY HAVING ONE PRIOR TO MARKETING YOUR HOME, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO REST EASY DURING THEIR INSPECTION.

BEFORE YOU START YOUR REPAIR, PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT ANYONE WORKING ON YOUR HOME WITHOUT INSURANCE MAY RELY ON YOUR HOME OWNERS INSURANCE IF INJURED. THIS COULD BE EXTREMELY IMPORTANT IF IT IS ROOF WORK, ELECTRICAL OR ANYTHING DANGEROUS.

MORE THAN ONE QUOTE IS ALWAYS HELPFUL. YOU SHOULD ARRANGE YOUR PAYMENTS IN ADVANCE, AND PAY THE FINAL PAYMENT ONLY WHEN YOU ARE 100% SATISFIED.

Thanks for your contact.  The roof can accumulate mildew or fungus that will be very unsitely.  Many sellers overlook their roof, but the buyers will inspect the roof in some fashion.  The roof is cleaned with chemicals and should be done by a professional.  Since this is dangerous work, the seller should insist on proof of insurance.  If the contractor has insurance they will be glad to provide a copy.  The do-it-yourself person should do a lot of research before attempting this chore.

I am a real estate agent and do not profess to be knowledgeable of roof cleaning.  However, I do know what buyers have to say about the condition of a roof.  Most all buyers are much aware of the expense involved with roof repair.  A good looking roof can go a long way toward eliminating that concern.

Please let me know if I can ever be of any service.
