Knowing what to do with home inspection issues can be a challenge when buying and selling Highlands NC real estate. As the market cools and becomes more even, the issues will become more negotiable. In a seller’s market home inspection issues work out more in the seller’s favor due to a competitive buying market. Likewise, in a buyer’s market sellers have to put more into resolving issues. Regardless, home inspection issues can seem daunting. An experienced Highlands NC REALTOR will be invaluable in helping to navigate the inspection contingency.

Every inspection reveals issues

Every home inspection will reveal issues. There is no way around this fact. Even brand new construction will reveal issues. However, some issues are bigger than others. The most common inspection issues include: roof issues, anything from missing shingles to the need for replacement; electrical issues, faulty wiring, old wiring, or overloaded fuseboxes; windows, not opening or broken seals; and water and HVAC issues, among other issues.

What should buyers do?

Buyers should always negotiate. Ultimately, this negotiation will include repairs being made or requesting money at closing to complete the repairs. However, sellers are not required to agree to repairs or money at closing. As a result, buyers have to decide what is important. A Highlands NC REALTOR will help a buyer evaluate his options.
