Home Inspection Report-JYB Realty

Our real estate agents at Josey Young & Brady Realty will help you find the Atlanta home for sale that puts you right at the heart of all the Peach State has to offer.

Sometimes, getting to closing on your dream home has challenges. With help from the right real estate expert though, you can overcome any bumps in the road. You may not be able to plan for everything that might happen, but you can always adjust and move forward.

One worrying situation is a problem with a home inspection. A home inspection is used to ensure a home is safe and ready for move in. A qualified inspector examines every aspect of the house, including its plumbing, electrical systems, roof, walls, floors, and much more. He or she then compiles a report specifying any issues.

Some mortgage programs for first-time homeowners require a "clean" home inspection that does not indicate defective wiring or anything else that may compromise human safety. In most cases, however, a home inspection is for advisory purposes only.

You can still go forward with buying a home after a poor inspection. Still, it's important to ask yourself how the results of the inspection might add costs or other complications to your plans. Here's what to do:

  1. Start With a Strong Inspection Clause
    A real estate lawyer is your best ally in ensuring your contract has an inspection clause that can make things right in the event of trouble. A common approach is to stipulate that the seller must pay to make certain types of repairs or provide a lump sum. However, this can come back to haunt you if faults cost more to fix than the seller agreed upon.

Spring has sprung, and our real estate agents are busy helping clients with Atlanta homes for sale prepare for the most active selling season of the year. One of their top tips is to use paint to get your home in buyer-ready condition.

  • Give the Exterior of Your Home Some Love
    There's no denying that creating curb appeal is vital—first impressions are everything with it comes to selling your home. If the exterior of your home is falling flat, consider giving it a makeover with paint. Many potential buyers drive by before looking at a home. If they're faced with a messy exterior or peeling paint, they may not come back. Ask around and get a few estimates from professional painters—they have the skill and tools to do the job safely and make it stand out from the crowd. Its best to choose a neutral or earthy tone for the exterior of your home, but make sure to pick a different color for trim—the contrast will be more eye-catching than using a single color.
