Industry experts identify over 33 physical problems that come under scrutiny during a home inspection when your home is for sale. A new industry report highlights the eleven most common of these problems and lays out step-by-step what you need to know about these potential pitfalls before you list your home for sale.
There are a number of things that can fall short of requirements during a home inspection, regardless of whether you own an older home or a brand new one, and if not identified and dealt with, any of them could jeopardize the sale of your home. That’s why it’s vital that you read this report before you list your home. Waiting until the home inspector flags these issues will almost certainly lead to costly delays in the close of your home sale or, worse, turn prospective buyers away altogether.
If you know what you’re looking for, in most cases you can make a reasonable pre-inspection yourself, giving you the ability to prevent little problems from growing into costly and unmanageable ones.
