Albuquerque and Rio Rancho Homeowners, be prepared for what a home inspection might reveal when selling your homes. Home inspections can often make or break a deal. If possible sellers should have one done ahead of time so repairs can be made and a home can be in its best possible condition. However, often a seller does not do a home inspection first and is caught off guard by a long list of repairs presented in the due diligence portion of the contract process.
The most common home ailments that show up in the home inspection process are:
- Faulty electrical wiring
- Roof damage
- Plumbing issues
- Poor drainage
- General lack of upkeep
These are issues that can add up to a potential home buyer walking away if a seller is unable to step up and make the repairs or commit the money to make the repairs. Examine these aspects of your home yourself, if you know everything is in good condition and the work that has been done to your home has been completed by professionals then you can rest easy, otherwise be prepared to make repairs in order to sell your home.
