NJ Home Inspections, Help Not Hindrance
NJ home inspections are a help not a hindrance. Sellers may balk at the idea of a home inspection. This may be because they don’t want anything to get in the way of a home selling. The reality is, however, the inspection contingency should be early in a contract. This means the inspection should occur shortly after going under contract. This is something in the seller’s control, negotiating for an early inspection can be a part of contract acceptance. What a seller needs to embrace is the fact that a NJ home inspector will find issues with his home.
No home is perfect, not even a new home. So when a New Jersey home inspector is conducting an inspection he will reveal some issues. The thing is, not all issues are big issues. Big issues are holes in a roof, a faulty wiring system, or a cracked foundation. Big issues will require further negotiations. Small issues are punch list items that the seller can take care of without spending a great deal of money.
When it comes to a NJ home inspection a seller needs to remember that he will want to know the condition of the next home he is buying. After all, buyers deserve to know the condition of a home. Many sellers conduct a pre-listing inspection to avoid surprises down the road. The important thing is to make sure that the NJ home inspector you are hiring is qualified.
