HOME INSPECTIONS I recently caught up with Anthony Godwin, Principal Broker of Today’s Realty as he was on his way to a meeting with a home inspector. Our conversation turned quickly to the value and importance that a home inspection brings to the real estate transaction. Not too long ago, home inspections were rare for Guam real estate sales, giving a whole new meaning to “let the buyer beware”! A homeowner interested in selling their home can benefit from a home inspection prior to listing their home. The inspection will reveal items that should be resolved in order for the seller to get the highest price for their home. It will give the seller time to make needed repairs that will enhance the value of the home. Purchasers utilize the services of a qualified home inspector in order to determine if there are any items that will need repairing or replacing in the near future. A qualified home inspector will examine details such as structural components, plumbing, mechanical and electrical systems, safety hazards, air-conditioning systems, doors, windows, roofing, decks and patios, grading and drainage systems, even household appliances! So what happens if the home inspection reveals something that needs to be repaired? Let’s assume the air conditioners need about $4,000 worth of work in order to function properly. The solution can be different for each transaction, depending upon the parties, but here are a few options: 1. Seller handles the repair prior to closing. 2. Buyer agrees to accept the house “as-is” and will deal with the air conditioning system after closing (but they have full knowledge of the deficiency). 3. Buyer and seller may instruct escrow to hold funds to pay for the repairs once they have been completed. 4. Seller may give a credit to the buyers at closing and the buyer can resolve the issue as they see fit. Your REALTOR has all the information you need to both obtain a home inspection, and to negotiate past any hurdle the inspection may reveal. Buyer BE AWARE! Inspection Checklist:
