Raleigh Home Inspections
A Raleigh home Buyer will probably have a Raleigh Home Inspection conducted on your home. The inspection should discover any health and safety issues in your home and any other material defects.
The Home Inspection is usually paid for by the buyer. Therefore, the Home Inspection Report belongs to the buyer. The buyer has the option to share that report with you or he may not. Some buyers do and some don't.
The Home Inspection Report will discuss the home's condition, and delineate any issues that the Raleigh home inspector may have found.
The Buyer now has some options. First the buyer must decide if the home is in an acceptable condition or if he/she wants repairs to be made as a condition of the sale.
If the Buyer wants repairs to be done the buyer's agent will then prepare a "Repair Request Form". This document may request, that you, make certain repairs.
You, as The Seller have 3 options:
1. Agree to make all of the repairs the buyer requested.
2. Refuse to make any of the repairs the buyer requested.
3. Agree to make some (but not all) of the repairs the buyer requested.
Your answer will be sent to the Buyer via the Buyer's agent. If you choose option #1 (Agree to make all of the repairs the buyer requested.) you make the agreed repairs, give the receipts to the buyer's agent and the sale of your home moves forward.
If you choose option #2 (Refuse to make any of the repairs the buyer requested or #3, (Agree to make some (but not all) of the repairs the buyer requested.) the buyer has options.
The Buyers' options:
1. Cancel the sale and have the earnest money returned.
2. Agree to your response and move forward with the sale.
3. Agree to do some (but not all) of the requested repairs.
The re-negotiation of the repairs then goes around again until the Buyer and Seller have either come to an agreement or ended the contract due to lack of agreement.
This process is timelined so it cannot drag on too long. It sounds complicated but we are really very good at keeping things moving and advising you on each detail.
We'd be happy to explain the process in detail or answer any questions you might have.
Having Home Inspection is usually part of a home sale. Many sellers are now choosing to have a Raleigh Home Seller inspection done before listing or during the listing in order to eliminate any problems or surprises during the sale process.
Other inspections that are commonly done are Raleigh Termite Inspections and Raleigh Radon Inspections. While not as common, some people elect to have Raleigh Mold Inspections.
If there's a septic system serving the property a Raleigh Septic Inspection may be completed.
