Most homeowners or soon to be homeowners decide at some point in their respective real estate endeavors to hire a realtor to help them along with the home selling or home buying process. Having real estate professionals on your team whether you are buying real estate or selling real estate is highly encouraged as there are many details involved in the sale of property. Often sellers of real estate are unaware of their home’s current condition especially when it comes to the parts of the house that they rarely take the time to inspect on a routine basis.
Hiring your local home inspector Albuquerque can help the seller to better understand what the current conditions of their house are. Typically most home owners are unaware of the roof’s condition. With such a major component in a home’s building envelope it is well worth the while to at least annually to have a roof inspection completed by one of your local home inspection companies. Depending on the roof covering material the wear and tear can be drastically different and more complicated to either repair or replace. Flat roofs and gable sloped roofs with architectural shingles and or clay tiles are what is most typical style of roofs that we see here in the Albuquerque and Rio Rancho areas. If all a seller wanted was to have a roof inspection performed as a stand alone type of home inspection service we offer that here at home inspector Albuquerque.
If a seller wanted to have a more thorough home inspection report completed we offer what we call a pre-listing home inspection service. Having this type of home inspection service completed before listing your property with a realtor for sale is becoming a more common practice in today’s real estate market place. Often realtors suggest to their clients to hire home inspector Albuquerque to perform a home inspection as having a pre-listing home inspection report allows for the seller to either address whatever conditions may exist at the subject property that may need correction, or it allows for the seller to have the knowledge of whatever conditions may need to be disclosed in the listing that needs repair and will also help to formulate the most competitive pricing for like properties in the area of the subject property. If the seller is unable to afford the repairs to be completed but still wants to sell the property anyway, having a pre-listing home inspection report shows a potential buyer that the seller is serious about selling and has done their due diligence as homeowner’s and typically the retail listing price will reflect whatever the repairs may cost to complete. Sometimes having a pre-listing inspection report already paid for by the seller is seen as a great value to the potential buyer because typically the home inspection costs are usually an out-of-pocket expense at the time of inspection for the buyer. I have also seen properties for sale that have a pre-listing home inspection report as well as contractor repair quotes already available in the listing documents package. Taking this type of proactive action by a seller can really improve the odds of the house selling quicker to a buyer who realizes this value is provided and may want to close quicker to get started on the repairs as soon as possible.
Having a pre-listing home inspection may very well save a seller hundreds or possibly thousands of dollars by allowing for the seller the option to learn of the conditions that exist and that may need to be corrected and by having the time opportunity to shop around for the best price for sub-contractors to remedy the situation. A prime example that I have seen time and time again is a failed roof inspection report that a seller was not expecting because the seller was unaware of the current condition of their house’s roof. A failed roof inspection can mean either a portion of the roof needs repair or the whole roof covering needs repaired or replaced all together. If the condition that needs to be addressed is the latter than that cost could very easily be in the hundreds to thousands of dollars. Learning of this type of repair is necessary before negotiations begin because a buyer may want such a deep discount that a seller may end up losing money in the transaction had the seller been afforded the opportunity to shop around and find the best price for roof repair.
