INSPECTIONS AND REPAIR NEGOTIATIONS
Property inspections can frequently result in buyer requirements for corrections by the seller. Whether you’re prepared for these or they come as a surprise, we’re here to help you to deal with them.
Part of our job is to help you to avoid too many “surprises” related to condition and repairs. We’ll do our best to give you information about what we see that buyers may want corrected, but there are things that nobody can anticipate until the inspectors have submitted their reports.
We want you to always be thinking ahead to inspections and repair demands from the first offer., If you go too far in price concessions at the beginning, you may have no room left when inspections are done, and condition corrections are requested by the buyer.
As the buyer is normally paying for and ordering inspections, our job for our sellers is to make sure that they happen on time and that we receive the inspection reports by deadline due dates. We then meet with our sellers and go over the reports and any buyer objections/requirements to develop a counter strategy. If there are no objections or they’re minor in nature and cost, you may opt to agree to corrections. However, if they’re more extensive and were not anticipated, our job is to help you to reply in a way that saves you money and keeps the buyer in the transaction.
We have our own list of inspectors and contractors and can call in experts to provide cost estimates and help our sellers to make decisions within the deadline times. Our job is to get the buyers to the closing table and your satisfaction with your net proceeds from the sale.
