Dealing With A Home Inspection Issue

As you may know, it’s common to include a home inspection as a condition of an offer you make. It protects you from issues that you might not otherwise see during a viewing.

What do you do if the home inspector finds something wrong? The inspector might find a leak in the foundation, or windows that are old, drafty and need replacing.

Must you pass on a property that you otherwise like?

Not necessarily. Just because the home inspector discovered a deficiency doesn’t necessarily mean you shouldn’t purchase the home. You should, however, bring the issue up with the seller.

Your REALTOR® will do that on your behalf, and look after your interests.

In many circumstances, your REALTOR® will be able to negotiate an agreement that is satisfactory to everyone involved. This will usually be in the form of a reduction in the sale price to cover some or all of the costs of the repair, or a requirement to have the seller get the repairs done before you move in.

So don’t worry if the inspector finds something wrong. Chances are you can still get the home and have any issues dealt with to your satisfaction.

Trying To Find A Bargain Home

You’ve heard the story. Someone finds a home on the market that seems underpriced, grabs it, and subsequently discovers it’s worth tens of thousands of dollars more than the selling price.

What a bargain!

The truth is, bargains like that rarely happen.

Most properties sell for somewhere close to their market value. That’s why you need to find the perfect home for you, in the right neighbourhood, with a list price that is within your affordability range, and then buy that property for the lowest price your REALTOR® can negotiate.

When you shop for the right property at the right price, you have a good chance of finding and buying your dream home.

But if you go into the market with a plan to find a bargain, you risk overlooking those homes that might otherwise be great opportunities for you. Why? Because your price expectations will probably be a lot lower than the actual market prices.

The good news is that an experienced REALTOR® can help you find a home that’s perfect for you in every way: type, features, neighbourhood — and price.

Putting a Price on Lifestyle

Shopping for a house is as much a lifestyle decision as it is a financial one. After all, unless you’re a professional real estate investor, you’re not just buying a house – you’re buying a home.

Sure, there are important financial matters to consider, such as mortgage rates, payments and resale values. But when deciding whether or not to make an offer, you also need to think about how that home will impact the quality of your life. So, it’s important not to let an attractive list price distract you from considering a home that has features that may be worth paying a little more for. You should determine the lifestyle features that are important to you and your family and factor them into the purchase price of any home. For example, have you considered the value of:

  • A large kitchen and a comfortable recreational room with a wet bar? Perfect if you entertain a lot.
  • A quiet room or cozy alcove? Ideal if you like to read, sew, build model airplanes, or surf the net.
  • A backyard with the right combination of sun and shade? Priceless if you love to garden.
  • A relatively flat, rather than inclined, driveway? Great for a game of one-on-one basketball with the kids.
  • A spacious deck or patio area? Hours of enjoyment for the BBQ fanatic in the family.
  • Parks, recreation centres, and schools within walking distance? A real time-saver if you have children.
  • Local green space and trails? Ideal if you have a dog to walk or are a jogger.

Taking these “lifestyle factors” into account will put the asking price into perspective, and help you determine how much the home is really worth to you.

Wild Life In Canada

Canadian wild life messed up all my plans for today yet again. Thursdays for some reason always give me cooking inspiration, and I was going to invite everyone today to our Thursday feast. Now considering what happened last night my recipe might look a little odd. But first things first – last night we were rudely awakened by the most horrible scratching and yelling. Sounded like someone or something was screaming the bloody hell right in the bedroom. Sure enough, my big and tough cocker spaniel was nicely wrapped up in his basket and showed no signs of willing to protect us. I could have sworn someone was getting killed and torn to pieces outside…
Sure enough – 3 raccoon, in the tree, in my backyard, doing their dirty “politics”. Finally, one of them fell off and the rest i guess followed to check on the buddy. Anyways, screaming stopped, everyone went to bed. But now guess what I was going to cook tonight – STEAK! Now the whole entire universe will think that I am cooking raccoon for dinner… Oh, well, I am off to show some houses, will be back in a few hours with the promised steak.
