What to ask when hiring a home inspector?

June 19th, 2013 Written By Carol Pawley

Home Inspection - Magnifying Glass

The home inspection is a vital stage when buying a home. Choosing the right home inspector is important. Before hiring the least expensive inspector right off the bat, it is best to interview two to three different companies and ask the following questions:

 

What are your qualifications and experience?

–       Find out how long they have been in business. Ask to see testimonials from previous customers. See whether or not they are licensed.

 

 What type of report do you provide?

–       The most important part of the home inspection is the detailed report that lists any issues, problems or potential troubles with the house. Find out if the report includes estimates to fix the issues that come up. Ask how long it will take for you to receive the report.

 

 What does the inspection entail?

–       Find out what areas of the home will be inspected and what is included or not included in the inspection.

 

 How much do you charge for the inspection?

–       Price will range depending on the size of the home.

Are you a frustrated buyer?

September 5th, 2012 Written By Carol Pawley

A new survey by Redfin shows that home buyers are frustrated with the lack of inventory. The survey consisted of 829 buyers in 19 cities, who expressed interest in buying a home in the next 12 months.

Key findings

• 46 percent believe now is a good time to buy, down two quarters in a row; and 32 percent believe now is a good time to sell, up two quarters in a row

• 61 percent believe prices will increase, up two quarters in a row

• 62 percent “very interested” in conventional sales, up from 57 percent in the second quarter and 48 percent in the first quarter

• 31 percent would step back from competing against other buyers for a home, compared to 28 percent in the second quarter

• 27 percent of respondents cited general economic weakness as a concern about buying this year, up from 24 percent in the second quarter and 20 percent in the first quarter

Are you suprised by these findings?
