Home Inspection for Selling Your Home
You put your home on the market. After several showings, a potential buyer signs a contract to buy your home. It has taken a lot of time and effort to get your home ready for selling, but now it will pay off.
You are excited and can plan your next move. Whether it is buying another home, downsizing, or retiring to a warmer climate. You buy a bunch of boxes and begin packing.
Then, the buyer hires a home inspector. You have lived in this home for a while. You fix the few things you know are wrong.
Will the inspector find something you overlooked?
The day comes for the inspection. Then, several days after, waiting for the inspector’s report. Finally, you hear back from your realtor, and it is not good.
The inspector did find some problems with the home. Now, the buyers are reconsidering the purchase. Everyone is upset. You are wondering what to do now since your stuff is half packed. You gave away some of your furniture already.
Now, if you had done a home inspection before you put your house on the market, you could have avoided many of these pitfalls. Any problems found by the inspector could have been fixed upfront while you had the time. If there are some things you can’t take care of, you can disclose them to buyers and adjust the price accordingly.
This makes it very difficult for a buyer to then back out once the contract is signed. That makes everything go much more smoothly, saving everyone time and money. Consider having a certified home inspector look at your home before selling it.
We just wanted to thank you for the comprehensive inspection report. Eric was very nice, extremely professional and thorough, and explained everything he found so we could understand exactly what we were dealing with and what needed to be done, if anything. Please thank him again for us for his great work and attention to detail!
From our initial phone call to delivery of the final inspection reports, Perkins Home Services was a complete delight. Professional, prompt, thorough, and accommodating. We even learned a thing or two from the general home inspector, in addition to the required information. We're satisfied and smarter!
Scott and John who inspected our septic system have completed their work at our home in Deer Isle, Maine. We wish to complement their professionalism, courtesy and willingness to respond to our questions. They were very informative. You sent a very good team and we appreciate it. Thanks for your help too in explaining the process and arranging our appointment.
I just wanted to say thank you and how incredibly happy we were with everyone. Scott & John were beyond friendly and answered any and all questions we had! We hope to recommend you to anyone that is looking for the same service in the future.
Just wanted to say I was pleased with your Septic Check on the Blackwood Rd, Property. But saddened that I was hoping to buy it without incident. Nice to be forewarned of future problems. Thank you. I would recommend you to others.
It has been a pleasure dealing with all at Perkins. Very professional and knowledgeable. Little wonder that you are highly recommended by every realtor that we have met.
This is a very professional, thorough company. Their excellent work takes much of the worry out of buying a new home.
Scott came and inspected a home today I am interested in buying and he was great! I just wanted to say thank you for being so flexible and available. Scott was great about explaining everything to me in depth and answering all my questions. Thank you again!
Many thanks to you and the Perkins team for the great work on inspecting the home I plan to purchase. Your workers (both those who answer the phone and send out reports and those who do the hands-on inspecting of house, water, and septic) are all wonderful- friendly, knowledgeable, efficient- and you came so quickly when I needed you! I especially liked it that I could observe the inspections and ask questions. I learned a lot about the place I will soon call home!
