Home Inspection before or even after submitting your offer to purchase?

When it comes to making your offer to purchase, I can provide you with good advice on how to allow for a home inspection as a part of this process. Subject to the homeowner’s permission, I can commission a Home Inspection before or even after submitting your offer to purchase. This is done by having me as your agent prepare a conditional offer that’s contingent on a Home Inspection report that’s acceptable to you.



This approach gives you some distinct advantages: if the conditional offer is accepted, the property is temporarily held against other offers, yet you still have a legal escape route if the report turns up some major negative surprises, such as a bad roof or a crumbling foundation. On the other hand, if the conditional offer isn’t accepted, then the need to pay for a home inspection may never arise.

As your professional, I can counsel you on the best approach to suit your market and your individual situation.

The company I use is Caveat Emptor LV, and was recently selected as one of the top 20 home inspection firms in Southern Nevada by Expertise.com. The quality of our inspections and their service is second to none (in my opinion) !Need an inspections? (click here)
