Riding the home inspection merry-go-round

Thank goodness for the brokers who manage expectations
  • When I worked in Southern California, our company policy on inspections was to have the buyers take a credit for the work and have their own contractors complete it.
  • It's no secret that when there are multiple offers on a property, that the buyers will often do what is necessary to win the property and then use the inspections to work the seller's price back down.
  • When all is said and done, it comes back to having a strong, competent broker on your side.

The inspection process during any transaction can be a challenge. Nevertheless, nit-picky inspectors and buyers who believe they should be purchasing a perfect home are lending new meaning to the phrase, “You’ve got to be kidding.”
