We did not have a naked buyer running away but we were left wondering WHY the Home Inspector SCARED the living pants off both the buyers? You see there was a recent home inspection on a new home in relatively really good. The few things the inspector found, made it look like it was the end of the world on this Manchester NH area home.
A couple of examples:
The 10 year old roof: The roof is 10 years old, it could have a 30 year life or start leaking next winter.
The 10 year old furnace: Although we see it was maintained yearly. This type of furnace can have a life of 25 to 50 years. The furnace though could go any time.
PESTS: There is no signs of termites but you should sign up with XYZ company who charges around $3000 a year for yearly monitoring and treatments.
Dining Room Wall. You will want to repaint the dining room, it will affect the homes value and cbh company can be hired to paint.
These were few of the most outlandish and needless to say, the buyer was scared to death. Everything was the worst case scenario. A home inspection should search for those major things that can not be seen with the naked eye. All items found should be communicated in a non alarming manner. NEVER should an inspector refer their friends for work. LASTLY the buyer agent should have been there to let the buyer know what to expect and comfort and inform them wen such matters happened. NOW this is why i say all listing agents should attend. I saw. I heard and I was able to directly question the inspection afterwards where he said "there ws no critical violations". I also called him out on be alarming pointing at the weeping buyer who should not have had their pants scared off them.
The MOST IMPORTANT message is to share with every consumer that my philosophy is simple, provide more personal and professional service to guide clients through each step of the buying or selling process. All Agents are not created equal and every buyer or seller should take the time to hire the BEST not just the biggest.
