To provide a basic understanding of defects to look for while showing a home, which could impact IF and HOW an offer is written. The goal is that the agent, with more knowledge about certain conditions found with many houses, will be better able to work with sellers, buyers, agents and inspectors for more successful transactions, and to further the objective of protecting the home buying public.
This list consists of the top 10 most common issues inspectors find in the field. IT IS NOT A COMPLETE LIST OF POSSIBLE DEFECTS. Knowledge of these items does not replace a full home inspection.
- What are You Looking at When Showing a Home?
- Are you looking for potential problems?
- All Homes have issues, Even New Ones.
Solutions could vary from a simple fix to a major repair. While you might make an offer contingent on a home inspection, it's important to recognize the severity of a home's defects prior to making an offer if at all possible.
