You’ve got your property under contract and the buyer’s inspector comes through. Inevitably, the buyer’s agent then sends you a list of repair requests. Sometimes, the inspector’s findings are minor. They really HAVE to point out something. But, more often than not, they come back with some items we’ve never even heard of, let alone thought about. Honestly, sometimes we wonder if we shouldn’t leave something undone on purpose, just to give the inspector something to find that doesn’t come as a surprise!
- When’s the last time you’ve been up in your attic?
- Have you tested for radon?
- Do you regularly look in the electrical panel and check for double tapped breakers?
We had one inspector decide that it was necessary to insulate a vent that we couldn’t even reach!
