No matter if the home you are purchasing is valued at $50,000 or $1,500,000, it's important to have a home inspected by an experienced, licensed home inspector certified by The American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI).
An inspector's report will show the deficiencies with the home and assess whether they are normal wear and tear or if they need repair.
A home warranty is an annual service contract that covers the repair or replacement of important appliances and system components, such as air conditioners, that break down over time.
If a home has older appliances, it may be beneficial to ask that a seller pay for a home warranty. If the appliances are new, be sure to ask the seller if there are any warranties on the appliances and if they are transferrable.
Negotiating the Price
An important part of negotiating the price is knowing what similar homes are selling for in the area. In addition, location, size of lot, whether the home is waterfront property and condition of home are items that will help to determine price.
