Home Inspection Issues-Remerica Hometown REALTORS

Problems uncovered during a home inspection are bound to be a letdown. They will most certainly raise concerns over both the safety and cost of repairing a damaged home. While some problems listed within a home inspection report may be an automatic disqualifier, there are some commonly discovered issues that our REALTORS® can help you negotiate. When an inspection detects problems with the home you want to buy, we recommend the following steps to move forward.

  1. Assess the full extent of the damage.
    Roofing issues, electrical problems, leaky plumbing, termite damage, cracked foundations, and the presence of lead or asbestos can be expensive to remediate and repair. When damage is discovered, remain calm and speak with your real estate agent to determine whether they feel the issue is a deal-breaker or if it's manageable.

Paint to Sell-Remerica Hometown REALTORS

A fresh coat of paint is one of the most affordable ways to attract buyers' interested in Ann Arbor homes for sale. In addition to allowing for appealing photos, popular neutral colors let people imagine themselves living in your house more easily. With a few hours of work, or some help from professional painters, you can add value to your property. Here are some of the ways that paint can help you sell your home.

  • A Perfect First Impression
    Without a beautiful exterior, buyers won't want to spend time checking out your home's interior. Before you take pictures for your listing or have an open house, you should trim your hedges, powerwash your driveway and sidewalks, and touch up any parts of your exterior with faded or peeling paint. While trendy, "greige," a blend of beige and gray, goes with most other colors and looks more appealing than beige or gray alone.
