Real Estate Agents, Home Sellers and Buyers, home inspections are mandatory for 90% of preowned homes being sold, unless it’s being sold for a total rehabilitation. Say You are about to close on a house as a buyer, or a seller - The financial negotiations are the key to deciding whether as a seller, your home will sell, or as a buyer, whether that home is in great shape. So you need a home inspection and report for final negotiation and for banking paperwork formalities. It is also needed as reference to determine the home value by the mortgaging company. However, this is an item that may not pop up until the deal is being finalized or even after the fact, close to the closing date. Very few folks think about a home inspection, including real estate agents - Sorry you dear people, but I have to gently say it - early in the process of buying or selling a home.
