Sellers: Time For The Inspection

Sellers: Time For The Inspection

Home inspections cover hundreds of details!

So when you’re home is listed for sale we must start with the obvious:  cleanliness.  An unkempt house gives the impression that the owners neglect regular maintenance. Be sure to clean your home thoroughly! Before the inspection remove laundry in the washer or dryer. Put away dishes from the sink and clear from the dishwasher. Sweep floors Clean vents and air ducts   Minor blunders should also be given attention. Repair small items such as: Leaky faucets Loose door handles and knobs Replace burnt out light bulbs Redo caulking or grout You can also address the major deficiencies by either fixing them or stating up front that you are aware of them and that the selling price has been adjusted accordingly.  Be sure all utilities are connected and running- electricity, gas, oil, water… this is critical for inspectors to test heating & cooling systems, appliances, plumbing, and more.

The combination of low interest rates and the ongoing stability in the job market is improving buyer confidence and finally releasing some of the sizable pent-up demand that accumulated in recent years.”  Lawrence Yun, NAR’s chief economist Here are latest stats from the Indiana Real Estate Markets Report… The number of closed home sales increased 9.5% The average price increased 6.1% The percent of original list price received increased 1.9% The number of pending home sales increased 13.4% Now let’s take a look at the Lafayette Regional Association of Realtors!
