An offer to buy a home in #Winchester #Virginia can include a “subject to” clause that is dependent on a home inspection. Not all buyers elect to include this clause because they may be purchasing a new home that is already under warranty, they may know enough about homes and building that the inspection is unnecessary, or they may want to save money. I alway suggest a predrywall inspection and a final home inspection prior to settlement.
Home inspections give you a professional assessment of a home’s condition. With such a major purchase as a home, an inspection gives you peace of mind in knowing whether there are any deficiencies that need to be dealt with now or in the future.
When writing your offer, include a clause that purchase is contingent on a satisfactory home inspection. Also include a clause for a final preclose walkthrough to ensure the property is in the condition you have agreed to and that any required fixes have been made.
Types of Inspections
A number of inspections are common in residential realty transactions. They include
- structural inspections (which may also include the foundation, roof, boiler room, furnace, heating, plumbing, appliances, etc.)
- termite inspection
- property boundary survey
- preclose walkthrough

Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
