A home inspection is a buyer’s opportunity to see if there any problems lurking about that may prove expensive to fix later. Home inspections nearly always uncover something in a home to watch for or minor repairs needed. But what repairs should buyers especially be alarmed about that could possibly send them back to the negotiation table? MOLD. Most home inspectors do not have the intense experiance in locating a potential mold infestation that could cause the new homeowner a sizable amount is remediation costs. Some times the seller doesn't even know that there is a mold issue hiding inside the home. Mold will hide in the most unusual places. Interstate Mold Inspection can find these hiding places. Interstate Mold has the experiance, knowledge, and equipment to make sure that the home that changes hands is free of mold.

Where moisture collects, so grows mold, a threat to human health as well as to a home's structure. Improper ventilation can be the culprit in smaller, more contained spaces, such as bathrooms. But think twice about buying a property where mold is pervasive -- that's a sign of long-term moisture issues.

6 Deadly Real Estate Deal Busters — and How to Beat Them

You work hard to get the purchase contract signed, but you can’t relax even then. Deal busters are lurking. Be ready.

 

1. Property appraisal is too low.

 

Response: If buyers don’t have enough cash to make up the difference in the loan amount and the purchase price, work with the sellers to see if they’ll take back a second mortgage. Make sure the existence of seller financing is disclosed and won’t affect the buyers’ ability to qualify for the first mortgage.

 

2. Repairs required in the contract haven’t been completed.

 

Response: Head off the problem by including a clause in the purchase contract that the seller will deduct an agreed-upon estimate of repairs rather than getting the work done.

 

3. Sellers say they can’t make the move-out date.

 

Response: If the buyers have the flexibility to stay put, suggest that the sellers agree to pay rent for the period they’ll remain in the house.

 

4. Buyers can’t qualify for a large enough mortgage to buy the home.

 

Response: Insist that all buyers be prequalified before showing them homes.

 

5. The buyer purchases a new car two weeks before closing.

 

Response: Explain to your buyer clients that big-ticket purchases before the loan is finalized can jeopardize their credit score and endanger the mortgage approval.

 

6. The home inspector finds what could mold in the home’s attic and he recommends that a professional mold inspector look at it.

 

Response: Many buyers want to run at the first sign of mold, but most types of mold are benign for everyone except people with severe mold allergies, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Urge the buyers to get a mold specialist to assess the type of mold, its extent, and the cost of any remediation before backing out of the deal.

 

Number 6 may be the most important because it is the only one that can be a hidden problem. The only one that won't come to light until after the contracts are signed then potential lawsuits can arise. Interstate Mold Inspection can find a mold problem wherever it may try and hide. Order an inspection on that home you are buying or selling.
