Home Inspections and Appraisals
Most buyers will require a home inspection. Some homes have issues which require attention. Even homes in the best of shape---even brand new construction---have at least a few details that need attention. Often the home buyer will want corrections made before the purchase occurs. Should the home inspection find any necessary repairs, your agent will negotiate the best possible outcome.
Because Nesbitt Realty also does property management, we know a lot of great handymen and contractors. If repairs are needed your agent can recommend handymen and service providers to make those repairs.
Nearly every home buyer will require an appraisal before closing. Appraising is the process of a licensed professional estimating the market value of a home. Factors influencing the market value include: comparables, adjustments, physical characteristics, etc. Most lenders require a satisfactory appraisal before approving a mortgage. Your agent can give you an idea of what to expect at the appraisal and how to maximize your value. Your agent will handle the details of getting the appraisal completed.
Nesbitt Realty will also coordinate other inspections as needed including the pest inspection, radon inspection and lead-based paint inspection.
Nesbitt Realty is a family-run real estate brokerage located in Northern Virginia.
