Would you like to know what are common requests after home inspection? You just got a home inspection and you’re curious on what are some common items?
It’s important to be fair when asking for repairs after a home inspection. A knowledgeable real estate agent should be able to guide you in on the process so make sure to ask about what concerns you have.
A home inspection has a purpose of highlighting the defects in a home. Asking to replace a light bulb is simply not on the list of common repairs. If you are ever confused about if you are asking too much and don’t want to be petty or too little, ask yourself if you were selling your home would you be offended and think it to be petty if someone started asking you to do those specific repairs?
The most common repairs that I’ve encountered are:
Some other issues include:
If the buyer has requested repairs on the home for major issues that we just talked about, and the buyer and seller have negotiated and agreed on repairs, the seller will then usually pay for repairs after a home inspection.
A good real estate agent has a track record of success with negotiating starting with the purchase price. If the purchase price went back and forth several times and the sellers seemed stuck on the number they wanted, they might not be so open to negotiate repairs. In their eyes you already got a discount or steal on the home because your agent did such a great job negotiating on the purchase price.
See what they are offering and then this is where both parties have to reach an agreement so make sure not to be too ridged when countering. Once you find a reasonable counteroffer that is fair to the seller and beneficial to your situation then the same contract can be used to add on or cross things off and then initials placed next to the adjustments. Your agent may also rewrite the contract altogether as well so that it doesn’t look messy or cause any confusion.
