The Next Step in Buying A Home

The Next Step in Buying A Home.

Just a few weeks ago, I wrote a post about a  Family Ready to Buy in Eldersburg! Are You Thinking of Selling?  We found  the home that met their needs. We have a ratified contract. Today we went to the next step...the home inspection. 

We started at 9:00 and finished in time for me to have a late lunch with Lee.

If you listened to RainCamp this week, you would know these hours spent at an inspection are a waste of a busy agent's time.

            Boy do I disagree!

This is the  time to meet the inspectors...usually more than one. There is the main home inspector, the termite inspector and in today's case a mold inspector. These professionals are chosen with care...some with my recommendation and researched by the buyer.

 The inspection was done this morning, a holiday weekend and we already have the computerized report in my email the very same evening.

Reading the entire report with the comments and being present gives me the understanding to  discuss the buyer's concerns and help make the decisions of which items to address. I think we will wait until tomorrow for this review.

This was their wish list  (you do have your buyers make one..right?)

At least a quarter acre lot, a walk out lower level, 2 car garage, location convenient to work, specific school system, upstairs laundry, separate dining room and a home with natural gas and public utilities. Minimum 4 bedrooms and 2 baths... a must. This home has it all and a bit more.
