In episode #2 of Selling Phoenix Real Estate Show, we talk about home inspections, what are they, and what you should know.
#1. What is a home inspection? - A Home Inspection is the opportunity for the home buyer to investigate everything about the house. To make sure there are no defects with the property itself, the neighborhood, and the CC&R's if located in a HOA. (Home Owner's Association). In the Phoenix Real Estate Market the standard timeframe for this is 10 days. Within that 10 days if you find anything with the property you disapprove of you, you have the opportunity to send the seller a inspection notice. Outlining the items you disapprove and request for the seller to resolve them.
#2. What Does a Home Inspector do? A home inspector is like your general physician, they preform a check up on the house and let you know if they find any red flags. They can inspect the entire property including the roof, attic, electrical, plumbing, foundation, doors, pools, irrigation system, and much more. The typical home inspection takes over 3 hours..!
#3. What should you pay attention to on the home inspection? In the Phoenix Real Estate Market it is very common for an home inspection company to issue you a complete report about their inspection. Generally these reports are over 60 sometimes 75 pages! Rich with Alliance Property Inspections outlines those red flags within a Executive summary and reviews these items with you in person. These can be more of the high dollar, high risk, or structural issues they found within the property.
