What will change for buyers?

Issues revealed during an inspection give you or your client more options.

 

Some buyers request that the seller resolve these issues prior to completing a transaction. Other's use the insight to negotiate a cheaper price, and some will eliminate the property from their search entirely.

04

What Will Change for Sellers?

Don't lock into a home-sale contract if your property is environmentally compromised. An inspection gives sellers options before their property is taken off the market.

 

A seller may choose to correct the issue, readjust their homes value, or simply disclose this information to a homebuyer to avoid delays or cancellations of a sale.
