Phoenix real estate and home inspections are tied closely together. As the Phoenix real estate market continues to recover, real estate agents need a home inspection company they can trust.
Most problems inspectors find are common and usually minor and can be easily remedied, but sometimes the expense can be considerable. This is one of the reasons why real estate agents work closely with expert home inspectors like One Avenue Inspection.
When making an offer on a house, you should make sure the contract always includes a home inspection contingency. The seller can take care of an expensive problem and make the repair before closing or negotiate a price reduction to offset your added cost.
How these options play out is really a function of the strength of the housing market. When houses were flying off the market, buyers often opted to take the property even with significant problems knowing that they would have to pay a lot more money a few months later for a similar home. In the current market, there is more buyer resistance.
You have to be prepared to walk away from a deal! It may be tough to walk away from one property, but doing so when needed will bring you one step closer to your dream home. Working with a real estate agent you trust means you will be in the hands of a home inspection company your agent trusts and recommends.
It is always important to remember that all home inspection companies are not the same. Individual inspectors vary in what specific tasks they undertake. Home buyers should inquire before they hire just what the inspector is willing – and unwilling – to do. Some inspection companies will not walk on a roof or crawl through an attic. Home inspection companies like One Avenue Inspection insist on walking through every key aspect of a property to give a thorough report.
Agents can recommend an inspector, but many buyers prefer to find one themselves. To find an inspector, ask friends, neighbors, and relatives for recommendations or contact One Avenue Inspection with any questions or concerns. The state of Arizona or a national organization such as ASHI requires certified inspectors to adhere to high standards of practice and ethics, involving periodic exams and updates.
