If you are looking for a home for sale in Terrell Hills, the 2016 hail event might provide you with a few delays and complications.
Homeowners: have a roof inspection so that you can get on the repair waiting list in the event you have a damaged roof. You may not know you have damage.
Sellers: have a roof inspection done and contact your insurance company immediately so that you may have it repaired. Most of the time, this will be a lender required repair before you close on the home. A lender required repaired means that a buyer won't be able to have their loan approved until the roof has been repaired.
Buyers: pay the extra $ to have a roof inspection done. This will allow the seller to file a claim with their insurance company.
Work with an experienced real estate agent who knows about the extended amount of time needed for option times and closing times. Be as transparent as possible to the other side of the transaction as we wade through this challenging event.
Here's an example of the type of roof damage being seen here in Terrell Hills as the area received more than 3 inch diameter hail:
My roofer informed me that there isn't enough product in the state of Texas to repair the damage done to the roofs in San Antonio. Basically, get it in line as this will take months to recover from.
And, keep in mind that a house is just a house. Your family and friends are the ones to treasure when faced with these types of annoyances.
