As a Buyer, you feel like you've searched and searched for your new home. You found it! We Negotiated for it and you are now UNDER CONTRACT! Yay!! What's Next?

     HOME INSPECTIONS!

This is the time Buyers, again, get nervous. What are they going to find? Black mold? Termites? Main Beams broken in half? Who knows! It's the unknown that makes Buyers nervous but as your knowledgeable Realtor, I've seen a lot. Most of the things that come up in Home Inspections are common to us and easily repaired.

Most of these statistics may scare you but they are easily treated, and we are here to guide you through this not-so scary process.
