Welcome back to the Capital City Real Estate Group video blog! I’m Marc Iafrate, Broker-in-Charge of the Capital City Real Estate Group here in Raleigh. Today’s topic is recommended negotiating strategies after you have a home inspection.
There are hundreds of things that can go wrong during a home purchase transaction. You can minimize the probability that this will happen if you first hire a professional and experienced real estate broker. So, after this first critical step, you will be in a much better position to handle minor issues that come up during the course of this transaction. One of the most important tasks that happens early on in the process is hiring a home inspector to evaluate the condition of the home and notify you of any issues that need to be addressed.
The home inspector will produce a comprehensive list of issues found along with corresponding pictures. Your Capital City Real Estate Group real estate broker will review every item on this list with you as the buyer and together you’ll decide what items you want to ask the sellers to repair. Depending on the severity of the items on the list, it may be a good strategy to not ask for some minor items (cracked light switch plates for example) but definitely ask for that structural issue with the foundation to be repaired!
And remember, you can always rely on your Capital City Real Estate Group Broker for helpful tips and referrals for trusted professionals whenever you need them.
