Property Condition

When buying a house the condition of the property is absolutely crucial. Once a home goes into Escrow and the inspectors come in, the true insights about the state of the house are revealed. Usually the following inspections are required by California Real Estate Law:

  • Mold Inspection
  • Pool Inspection
  • Fireplace Inspection
  • Agent Visual Inspection
  • Termite Inspection
  • Appraisal Report
  • Sewage Report

These are crucial in determining the actual value of a home. Often that’s when the dirty secrets come out and deals fall through. As a buyer you want to use the inspectors that will examine the house thoroughly so your agent can request a deduction from the price. Usually the seller’s agent will counter the deduction at 50% or less and initiate a solid negotiation position for their client. If you have a good agent he or she will know what to ask for and utilize their previous deal-making experience, connections, and relationships to the other agents.
