Real Estate Inspections: What Matters?
Are you in the process of buying or selling a home in Murfreesboro or Middle Tennessee area, and you are stressed out? Home inspections or real estate inspections are expected to give people peace of mind, but often have the opposite effect. You’ll be asked to absorb a lot of information in a short amount of time. This will often include a written report, a checklist, photographs, environmental reports, and what the inspector himself says during a walk through of the inspection. All this, combined with the seller’s disclosure and what you notice yourself, can make your experience even more overwhelming. What should you do?
- Major Defects. Example would be a structural failure;
- Things that lead to Major Defects, such as a small roof-flashing leak;
- Things that may hinder your ability to finance, legally occupy, or insure the home; and
- Safety Hazards, such as an exposed, live buss bar at the electrical panel.
