Home inspections are a key event in the home buying process. A large number of people will put their homes on the market, but many won’t be willing to sell until they have an inspection report that shows there is nothing wrong with it.
This also means that if you want to buy a house and don’t know what needs work done- or even if you do! – then this is your opportunity for great leads. Home inspectors can make lists of things that need repair or improvement which gives those homeowners contact information so they can reach out to contractors about estimates and quotes before anyone else has come by with offers on the property. And because these contacts often happen at relatively low cost (especially when compared to advertising), more buyers are made available as time goes on.
An inspector’s home inspection will also allow them to see what needs improvement and the extent of that work, which can be helpful in negotiating a higher offer if they are able to show that more extensive repairs or improvements need to be done. This may not always happen with an inspection report but is worth noting because it is something inspectors should pay attention to when determining how thorough their inspections should be – as well as attempt from time-to-time for customer relations purposes.
