Now that you know the importance of hiring an inspector for the exterior of your home, I hope it is apparent that the same benefits are there for the interior as well!
Plumbing, Plumbing, Plumbing!
This is a big one that we have had multiple clients be burned on over the years. Needless to say, a problem with the plumbing on the inside of a house is a little bit harder to see than a problem with the roof of a house. This makes hiring a professional inspection team or at least a licensed contractor check a home out even more important.
Since we gave an example of a team we have used for exterior home remodeling, here at Roto-Rooter website is another company that we have used in the past to do just that. When looking for a company to look for things that you or I might not be aware of, it is important to see some credentials or ask for references before hiring them.
Just like any other company, they are in the business to make money and will usually do anything they can to make it happen. Hiring a team that is reputable, honest, and licensed is very important before going forward with any other work.
This is why we have contractors from all different industries on our side here at Gig Harbor Homes which helps us cover as many bases as possible for you!
This one is going to be a little bit of a continuation from yesterday and we will go into a little bit more detail today. For those of you who missed it, we discussed how much of an impact a first impression can have for both buyers and sellers.
You want to make sure your home is presentable and inviting when potential buyers are coming over to check out your home and if the exterior is neglected you can almost always assume that the interior will be no different.
One of the best things that you can do if you are trying to sell your home is to hire a team of professional home inspectors to give you an official and documented check list that you can show to any potential buyers.
A home inspector looks for more than what you or I could look for if we are in the market for a new home. They do this for a living and it is their job to try and find things that are wrong with your home so having their evaluation on paper is very credible and shows buyers that you have nothing to hide!
Here at O’Fallon Roofing website is a team that we have worked with in the past and have hired to do roof & home inspections for some of our clients. Along with other home inspection and roofing companies, they have been in the business for years and have a knowledge on homes and buildings that you or I do not have and have a much better understanding of it all.
If you are in the market for a new home and the seller hasn’t had an official and professional home inspection team come out and evaluate the home then you are pretty safe to assume that they are either lazy, cheap, or are trying to hide something which is a huge red flag.
Any buyer or seller should have a number of documents they have and ready to hand over at a moment’s notice.
As we mentioned with our debut post, there is more that meets the eye then what year a home was built or what the seller tries to tell you. Again as we have mentioned, not everyone is the real estate business (especially home sellers) is as honest as you me.
For the most part, they will tell you anything and everything you want to hear to try and close the deal and unfortunately this can cost you a lot of money down the road.
Unless you are fortunate enough to have a team as honest as we are, you need to be careful.
First Impressions Matter!
That being said, you want to make sure that your house is in presentable condition and really catches the eye of any potential buyers. If a buyer pulls up to a home for an open house and the outside is dirty or run down, what does that tell them about the state of the rest of the house?
It tells them that you don’t care about how your home looks on the outside so what would lead you to believe that the inside is any different?
First impressions can be a make or break deal when talking about the real estate market so making sure that the exterior of your home is in tip top shape is imperative.
There are a number of things that you can do to make sure this happens, including a professional home inspection which we will begin discussing next so stay tuned!
Gig Harbor Homes have been in the business since 2006 and since then, we have picked up a number of team members that are among the best in their respective industry. We have roofers, agents, and home inspectors working for us and collectively we make up one of the most knowledgeable teams in the business.
What Makes Us Different?
Well what really makes us different from other teams of real estate agents or contractors is just what you got finished reading!
Our team is one of the most eclectic around and you really won’t find another company that has a more diverse group of experts working together to make sure that any sale we are a part of, whether we are on the buying or selling side, is one that will make either make or save both us and you the most money possible!
Let’s be honest for a moment.
Aside from used cars salesmen, real estate agents don’t have the best reputation as far as honesty goes. We work every day to try and tear that stereotype down by providing knowledgeable and honest advice for any of our clients. This has been our motto from day 1 and is the reason we have become as successful and reputable as we have.
You really can’t make it as far in this business through dishonesty like you used to and that is why we try and get as many people from different backgrounds working with us as possible!
