What will the home inspection cover?

What will the inspection cover?  Both sellers and buyers often wonder and ask this question. The home inspection can vary based on the type of home you are selling/purchasing.  It can also vary if you add on items like stucco inspection, meth, mold, radon, infra-red  etc.  Make sure you ask your home inspector about any additional test.  Do not assume the inspection will cover “everything” because your “everything” and the companies “everything” may and probably will vary.  I always suggest you ask a lot of questions before the inspection so you know what to expect from your chosen inspector.

*I also suggest that new construction buyers get a home inspection.  A lot of buyers will question me on this, but the buyers who have taken the advice have been grateful in the end. *

Below is an outline of items that you will want to see if they are covered.  The list is just that a list of items that may be covered, I am not an inspector I have only been to a lot of inspections and read over a lot of reports.

Exterior:  Do you have big trees in your yard? you might want to ask about having a plumber run a scope of the drains to make sure tree roots are not wrapped around the pipes running from the house to the street this can be a very expensive issue down the road.  Other items they may look at sidewalks, driveways, steps, windows, doors, drains, gutters. Decks, balconies, porches etc.  just to name a few.

Structure: Foundation and Framing

Roofing: Roofs age, condition, flashing, draining system, skylights, chimneys.

Plumbing: Drain pipes, sump pumps, poor water pressure, leaks, rust, corrosion, banging pipes, examination of the whole water system.

Electrical: Service panels, entrance wires, breakers and fuses. They will check for lose wires and/or wires that are not grounded, outlets etc.

Heating: Vent system, flumes, fireplace, water heater, furnace

Air Conditioning: Weather permitting they will run the system to check for performance, age, wear and tear.

Interior: another looks for leaks, insects, defects, walls, ceilings, stairs, garage doors, check for cracks.  Attics ventilation, insulation.  Crawlspaces, water damage. Overall condition of the home to make sure all components are functioning as they are intended.

A home inspection is a professional set of eyes trained to look for problems.  They will alert you of major issues and also of “to-do” items to consider down the road.  Make sure you read the whole report and talk it over with the inspector, your agent and anyone else the inspector suggest you contact.  

The inspection is so important.  What I have provided is just a small glimpse of what you will benefit from when you have an inspection. Please make sure you get one! I hope this helps.  Let me know if you have any questions about what to expect when you buy or sell a home.

What happens when I sell my home? Question #2: Showing Feedback

What happens when I sell my home? Question #2  Showing Feedback.  When a seller puts their home up for sale the majority of sellers want some feedback after showings.  More often then not, they will not get it.
I like to warn all sellers that buyers will provide feedback thru their agents.  If an agent chooses to pass it on to us it is completely up to them…unless the buyer has requested the feedback be sent/given or of course the best feedback of all would be an offer.

I have setup showing services before where they request feedback with mixed results.  I will also call agents for feedback and also received mixed results.

 

But when you do receive feedback, you need to be prepared.  It might not be what you really wanted to hear.  The hardest part for a seller is to listen with open ears and an open mind.  What a buyer tells you needs to be thought about and taken into consideration, not quickly dismissed.

You will hear comments on everything from pricing, location, cleanliness, style, color and of course how its decorated.  That is why it is soooo important to listen to your agent.  Clean and declutter your home before it goes on the market.  Neutralize the home colors and decorating.  Take care of your animals and their smells.  Take care of everything you can control.

 

Your goal is to be the home they love not the one they are laughing about and sharing to their friends as the “pink house” or the “cat house” or the “1970’s home” or the “Brady bunch house”   I’m sure you understand what I’m saying.

 

If you get feedback, great! Take it with a grain of salt, listen to it and know that feedback will not always be kind.  If you do not get feedback its  not your agents fault. We ask, we beg and we hunt down the buyers agents but ultimately if they do not provide it we can’t force them to.  Try to relax, price your house right and keep it clean.

Good luck!

What do I need to do to sell my house? Tips for the inside

What do I need to do to sell my house? Tips for the inside of the house.  My first and the easiest suggestion is to start by taking pictures.  This will allow you to see your home from a different view.  Snap pictures of your closets, pantry, the bedrooms, bathrooms and all rooms of the house.  Try it, you will be surprised at what you see.

Remove all the clutter from counters, cupboards and cabinets.  If a buyer walks in and sees the counters covered they will think you are short on storage. The same goes for cluttered cabinets, cupboards and closets.  Also, don’t forget under the bed.  They will notice if your “stuff” is what appears to be holding the bed up.  Enlarge the pictures you have taken you will see a lot of stuff.

Clean: Spend time deep cleaning your home.  Wipe down the baseboards, the shutters, the vents and light switches.  Clean your appliances. Wash the rugs, carpets and drapes. Polish your floors. Patch up any holes in the wall including nail holes.  A fresh coat of paint can do wonders.

Make sure all your light bulbs are working.  A burnt out light fixture to a buyer means something is wrong with the electrical.  To a seller it means I need to change the bulb.

Brighten your rooms.  If you have dark rooms, lighten them up with a different paint color, brighter bulbs or more light fixtures.

Put some color in your house.  Flowers or fruit as center pieces look fantastic.

Bathrooms and kitchens:  Make sure you take extra time to deep clean these areas.  Fresh towels make a great first impression.  Also, please remember to put away all personal items.  The buyers will spend a lot of time looking at these rooms and deciding if they think the areas will work for them or not.  *they do not want to see dirty laundry or your beauty products*

Lock up all your prescriptions and valuables.  Buyers will be looking around and they should see your home not remember your valuables.  Its impossible for a buyers agent to watch everything all the time.  Keep everything locked up to help prevent the possibility of something missing down the road.

When its time to show your home, grab your pets and kids and leave.  Do not stay while buyers look around.  Its uncomfortable and they will not stay long.  You could potentially lose your buyer because you want to show them the great features and all they want to do is leave because they feel very uncomfortable.

What do I need to do to sell my house? Tips on cleanup the outside

What do I need to do to sell my house? I thought of this as I was painting the outside trim of my house this weekend. I had a neighbor come up to me and state “I didn’t know you were moving?” I told them I wasn’t and they said “well why are you repainting your trim..” I had to laugh because my husband had said the same thing to me earlier in the day. “It doesn’t look bad I don’t know why you are wasting your time repainting the trim.”

Preventative maintenance is key to keeping your home in good shape. It also helps it look a lot nicer. It is amazing what some missing paint chips will do to the appearance of a home. So if you have neglected some regular maintenance items of your home here is a small list of to-do’s to help you get started so your home will look better, sale faster and get you top dollar.

Tip #1: Take pictures before, during and after: Sometimes your eyes will not show you how others see your home. For a better feel, take pictures and look at them online. Make sure to zoom in and you’ll really notice the difference. We get used to what we see day in and day out year after year. Your pictures may startle you.

Exterior: Here are just a few tips and items to consider:

Again take pictures from all angles. You will be amazed at what you see..

Make sure your downspouts are fastened and not blowing in the breeze.

Clean up the yard, edge the walkways, trim the bushes

Throw stuff away

During the winter make sure ice and snow are removed from walkways

Summer: make sure the lawn if taken care of and watered

Remove the dog/animal presents from the grass

De-clutter any areas and that includes pulling weeds and removing dead plants/trees.

Paint the trim and any exterior areas that need it

make sure you check your handrails for rust *if rusty paint them

Make sure that they are sturdy.

Clean your windows

Garage: remove the clutter and please make sure all doors leading into the home are clean and well taken care of

Take some time to replace the seals around your doors too. As they walk up they shouldn’t be able to see inside before they open the door.

 

MAKE SURE YOUR KEY WORKS TO LET THE BUYER IN THE FRONT DOOR

Clean up your front entrance. The front entry is key to a first impression. I have never had a buyer say wow this front entry is NASTY …I bet they take great care of the home… lets go inside..

Take time to show pride in ownership. It goes a long ways. I have had a lot of buyers over the years never make it inside because of what they see when we pull up to the home. A clean, maintained home will welcome the buyer and put them at ease as they enter your home. You want them to smile as they walk up and as they walk into the home.
