How Home Inspection Can Benefit You As A Seller And A Buyer

George Sterling | Wednesday, September 26th, 2012

Home inspection plays a key role in the buying and selling of estate. This service is usually provided by a professional home inspector who is authorized to inspect the estate in question. The inspector provides a report of the estate to the client which tells the client the true condition of the estate. Having your home inspected benefits you in many ways even if you are a seller.

Home inspection can often help the seller decide the cost of the property or alternatively for buyers, it can reveal the benefits they would be getting if they buy the property. Home Inspection is limited and non-invasive in a way because the inspector is not authorized to have a look at every corner of the property, but he/she is expected to inspect most of the estate.

Before you call for home inspection, it is important to know the list of things the inspector will be checking. Few of the things on the inspection list include the ceilings, walls, floors and the entire foundation of the house. If a certain element is alarming, the inspector may advice repair. He will also inspect the exterior of the estate which includes doors, drainage, driveways and windows.

If possible, complete all repairs that are needed before calling an inspector. Also keep in mind that the inspector has the right to check the taps, drain and waste pipes of the house, so it is very important to keep your plumbing in check.

When the inspection is completed, a report is handed to both the seller and the buyer. The report will reveal the true condition of the estate. If there are any repairs necessary, it will be included in the report. If everything in the house is up to the inspector’s standard, the seller may be helped in deciding a great price.

Home inspection is very beneficial for the seller as the inspector lets the property owners know what price they can close on with and without repairs. The inspector will reveal the possible sale value of the estate after you have done the repairs. It is always a good thing to get everything repaired according to the standards of the inspector. This can directly help you increase the sale price of the house. Alternatively, if you are a buyer, you will find out the actual worth of the property that you are purchasing.
