Many times buyers walk into a home to find it the one. It meets all their requirements, checks all the boxes. They are in love! The offer is sent and accepted. Can it get any better? Maybe, but it can certainly get worse.
I have a listing that is the best maintained, cutest house in the neighborhood. Not a single showing has happened where the agent did not call or text,"Great House!" So what's the problem? It's what's under the hood, or in this case the roof.
An inspection turned up a possible leak in the roof. I brought in my roof contractor and he confirmed the problem. Looks like a new roof is in order. The seller was shocked because there were no signs of a roof leak inside the home and she never went into the attic.
Just like you should never buy a car without checking what's going on under the hood, a buyer should never buy a home without having a thorough inspection. At least the good news in this situation is that the buyers will be getting a great home AND a new roof.
