How to Be Skilled at Home Inspection
Skilled home inspectors have always been known to unintentionally scare off buyers due to their due diligence. A home inspector is someone who is responsible for the objective evaluation of a home’s visible condition. In the course of this inspection however, their discoveries can influence buyers to terminate a sale contract. House inspectors are particular about details and even though a house may look decent at face value, they can dig up underlying faults and discourage buyers. Here are some of the things house inspectors look out for:
- Hidden faults
Like earlier mentioned, house inspectors do not take a house at face value. The house may look good, but on deeper inspection, these inspectors may find hidden faults thereby discouraging buyers from making payment. These hidden faults may include short-cuts made in building, repairs, renovations or maintenance made by the homeowner. This is most common in homes that was refurbished or renovated. Home inspectors also discover problems in structural repairs and plumbing that may have been patched or covered up during the sale of the house. If it looks new and shiny, the home inspector will find out if it is truly new and shiny. He will also find underlying problems with houses that have been remodeled several times from misuse. This includes extra foundations that have been laid on thick, additions and irrelevant support. These risks will be revealed by the home inspector thereby giving the buyer the choice of buying the house or not.
- Additional Repairs
Irrespective of how old a house may be, if it will cost the buyer additional repairs, the home inspector will let the buyer know. Some older homes have been known to be in good shape while newer ones have been known to need extensive repairs. These repairs may be minor or major, but the cost must be considered before buying or renting a home. For houses that have undergone repairs, these repairs may last for decades. Systems that need to be replaced after years usually include the deck, furnace, stairs, and roof. Other interior finishes may need repairs at that point, too. This maintenance list is what the home inspector will look out for and inform the buyer about.
- Weak support
This can also be called bad bones. This means the pillars or support of the building is faulty. This particular problem is cost intensive. Buyers need to fix this or else the house may come crumbling down. In this situation, a host of repairs will be done, and this includes but is not limited to the furnace, pillar word, kitchen, bathrooms, floor, paint and appliances. Buyers need to consider the foundation, frame, roofline, floor plan and drainage. A home inspection will reveal where the problems—structural or otherwise. The buyer will then consider his budget and see if it is still within his price range.

Some real estate agents say that it’s not their demeanor that matters here and they believe the behavior of the inspector is critical to “keeping the deal together.” However, the attitude of the real estate professional at the inspection is very important. Experienced and mature inspectors are able to choose just the right tone to convey their findings. Home inspectors should be calm and informative; stressing the overall healthy condition of the home instead of highlighting just the problems or lumping together every minute insignificant detail (e.g. broken toilet seats or leaking faucet) with any major problem they’ve encountered. We can work with you to help allay your fears as a client as an outsourced team.
Either a buyer or a seller, you can decide to attend home inspections so that you can have an idea of what it entails. As a buyer’s agent, we are able to see immediately any problem the inspector discovers. This way, we are better able to either allay your fears at that point or look for solutions out of the problem.
