Home Inspection for Your Home Purchase!

Good Day All, 

I hope everyone is having a great week! This post is mostly for home buyers or people who might be planning on purchasing a home going into 2018! Once you have found the home you want to purchase and both the buyer and seller have agreed to the terms, your Realtor should give you the opportunity for a home inspection to be completed. 

I typically always recommend for my buyers to have a home inspection completed. This will allow them to evaluate the home inspection report and make sure the condition of the home is satisfactory to them. Shouldn’t you as a buyer have questions for the home inspector? For future home buyers, have you thought of a list of questions to ask your home inspector? Below are a few questions that you may find helpful.  

1.) Are you licensed and insured?

2.) How long have you been a licensed inspector? 

3.) Do you belong to the Better Business Bureau or any other organizations? 

4.) What is included with your home inspection package? (well, septic, gas lines, roof, swimming pools, etc.) 

5.) If repairs are needed, do you charge a re-inspection fee? 

6.) How long before I receive a copy of the home inspection report? (make sure your purchase contract has a enough time for a inspection to be completed) 

7.) How much do you charge for the home inspection? Are there any other fees I should be expecting? 

8.) How do I pay you for the services completed? (Apple Pay, Check, Credit Card, etc.) 

9.) Do you offer any other services? (termite, WDO Inspections, etc.) 

10.) Appx. how long does a home inspection take? (I always recommend my buyers to attend the inspection) 

I hope you find this information helpful. As always if you have any questions about the home buying process, please give me a call/text (352) 572-1739 or email me at Info@HomesForSaleOcalaMarion,com

3 Reasons Why… It’s Great Time for Sellers Aug 2015

2015 is turning into an excellent year for sellers because of rising home prices, increased demand from home buyers and happy houseless overall seller competition for most U.S. and Ocala Marion County Homeowners

 

1. Stronger demand from buyers… Demand from buyers has remained high and less competition(homes for sale), is making 2015 a fantastic year for many Marion County home owners. There is currently a larger pool of buyers, including first time buyers, boomerang buyers)previous owners who lost their home to foreclosure or short sale), and traditional owner-occupant buyers.

2. Home prices on the rise…Across the nation home and condo sellers in the first half of the year sold for an average of 13% above original asking price. Homes in the median price range have increased 6.4% since 2014 based on the June – Monthly Market Reports from Florida Association of Realtors for the Ocala/Marion County area. “So far in 2015, [sellers] are realizing the biggest gains in home price appreciation since 2007,” Blomquist says. “In June, sellers sold for above estimated market value on average for the first time in nearly two years.” Median sales prices of existing-homes pushed above the previous 2006 peak to a record high in June, the National Association of REALTORS® reported this week. The median existing-home price for all housing types was $236,400 in June – surpassing the peak median sales price set in July 2006 at $230,400.

3. Less Seller competition… New listings have decreased year over year by -2.6% and pending homes sales have increased 7%. Ocala/Marion County inventory has also decreased -8% and currently there is only a 6 month supply of inventory. This means if no other homes were placed on the market in the coming months it would take 6 months for ALL homes to be sold. Also the decrease in the number of distressed properties has fallen -11.8% and these sales accounts for less than 10% of all closed sales.

It is important to remember that location is the biggest factors in considering all of the numbers and statistics. It is important to find a trusted real estate professional that is knowledgable about your local market to discuss in further detail.
