I read so many articles about what to do or how to prepare a home before putting it on the market. Most folks do a pretty good job, but many are surprised when a home inspector comes along and points out items that need to be repaired to a prospective home buyer. I have seen so many transactions fall apart as a result of a home inspection.
I have been flipping homes for a long time and a number of years ago, I started having a home inspection done as soon as the renovations are done. I know, you might think it is a waste of money, but I see it as a good investment. I would rather be made aware of an issue that we might have missed sooner rather than later. Even though we have one done, we will still recommend the buyers have their own done.
I recommend the same to folks who talk to me about their plans to sell their home in the near future. It will make the Realtor’s job easier and there will be fewer issues once the property goes on deposit.
