AFTER THE INSPECTION – What Are My Options?
After being in the real estate industry for more than 30 years, there is still one question that people ask me more often than any other question. “What happens after the home inspection?”
Having a home inspection is one of the most important conditions you should include in your offer. The other important condition is financing. These conditions usually take 3-4 business days. Both conditions need a waiver to be submitted after each condition has been met. This removes the condition from the offer. If the condition is not fulfilled, the offer dies, and you get your deposit back. However a Mutual Release must signed by both the Buyer and the Seller.
You should hire a certified/registered home inspector. Your agent can probably provide you with a list of 2-3 good inspectors you can call, or you can find one of your choice. The inspection normally lasts 2-3 hours depending on the size of the home. The price varies too depending on size and the type of home.
There is a simple answer… you have four (4) options available to you… watch the video for the answers!
Review the Inspection Report with your agent to see which option is best for you. Remember, the House Inspection is a condition … it is not a firm deal unless you remove the condition. This is done by signing a Fulfilment of Condition, a Waiver or through an Amendment, changing the terms of the Offer. The Amendment must be signed by both parties and agree to the changes in the offer.
