When buyers tell me they want to wait until a sunny day to see a home, I show them this nice puddle in the hallway!
This is an extreme example of a failed roof, as the property had been sitting empty for many years. Even a home in seemingly good condition can reveal active leaks when rain is falling.
I say it is better to show the home on a rainy day, the buyer can see a leak, or poor drainage, (see photo below) with their own eyes before they write an offer, and then spend few hundred non-refundable dollars for the whole house inspection report to show, "home has a leak in roof, further inspection by a licensed roof contractor is recommended."
The agent spends valuable time backing the buyer out of the contract, and showing more homes.
....In the meantime, the dry and cozy home the buyer should have bought in the first place, shows it is now pending sale with another buyer!.....
