Today, I’ll answer a question about whether or not I’ll perform additional inspections on your home after we’ve agreed on the purchase price.
Do you want to know how much cash your house is worth today?
Today, I’d like to take some time to answer a question I get from a number of people: “Do I do inspections on your property after we’ve agreed upon a purchase price?”
When I first preview a property and meet a homeowner, the first thing we do is have a discussion about your circumstances. Once that’s all complete, we take a look through the property, during which time I’ll be taking a lot of notes. That’ll give me enough information to put together an offer proposal for you.
Once I have that proposal, I’ll get it out to you in any of a number of different ways: phone, email, in writing, or in person.
When we’ve agreed upon a price and terms, oftentimes sellers want to know if they need to do further inspections. The answer is that it really does depend on the property.
Typically, I will do another run-through on the property, but I don’t have a home inspector like a typical buyer; I do it myself. They get a little bit more in-depth than others, depending on the extent of the work that the property requires. That said, it’s not really a formalized inspection, but rather a second look at what I initially looked at very quickly.
The ultimate answer to the question is, “Yes, there will be another inspection, but it won’t be done by an inspector. It’ll be done by me.”
If you have any more questions or comments, please feel free to contact me. I’d be happy to help.
