Dealing With Home Inspection Repairs

Okay, you've had the dreaded home inspection and now the home inspector is requiring the homeowner, to fix the damage to the house, before it can be sold. Who is going to do the home inspection repairs?

Here's who I would suggest that you don't use, to do your home inspection repairs. The home inspector who inspected the house. Some of these home inspection companies, can charge ungodly amounts of money, just to do simple repairs and some of the time they aren't even done correctly..

I'm not talking about every home inspection company or every single home inspector, but I would like you to think about something for a minute. I would imagine that more than half of all home inspection repairs, are done by the home inspection company and the homeowners don't even question, the price is that they are paying for these repairs. They just want it done and they're only thoughts are about moving and selling their home.

What does it actually hurt, to get a few contractors, to look at the property damage? You have a list of all the repairs that need to be done. This makes it easy for any contractor or handyman to give you a price to repair the damage. It's not like their going to be looking around and giving you another inspection, there's a list of repairs that need to be done. It doesn't get any simpler than that.

By doing less, you're simply keeping the home inspection company or a home inspector, from ripping you off. Let me leave you with a little bit of advice. If you don't understand what I'm saying, it's very important that you really read this article.

I personally have witnessed home inspection reports, that have included home repairs that were more than double, what I would have charged a homeowner and I'm a licensed general contractor.
