While property values have taken on a roller coaster-like pattern in the past several years, one thing remains certain: Home values will always continue to be relative to the value of other homes in their market. What does this mean for you? Very simply, it means that no matter how much home prices go up or down, there are still things that you can do to stabilize and maximize the value of your home, as it relates to similar homes in your area. In these uncertain times, it is crucial, now more than ever, to ensure that you take the steps that are necessary to see that your home is valued at the best possible price.
“As a homebuyer or seller, if you had the “inside scoop”
on the home inspection process, wouldn’t that make you
feel less anxious? If you’re looking to get into this line of
work, this book will help you know what to expect and
how to get as much information to further your career
Think about it like this: the buyers want you to
find everything, the sellers don’t want you to find
anything, the realtors don’t want the home inspector
to “blow the deal”, and the home inspector, who’s
in the middle, has an obligation to do a thorough
and professional job and stay neutral.
The home buying process is complicated enough, but
being prepared, knowing what to ask, knowing what to
look for in a home inspector, knowing what everyone’s
roles are, that’s the easy part when you have access to
the right information.
If you’re going to seek advice from someone, make it
someone who’s got the extensive background to be
off ering such advice. Read more so you can be prepared
for this house, your next house, or a future career.
