What home SELLERS should know about… Inspections!

Very few people like to take tests. Tests are scary – particularly if you don’t know the topic. When selling your house, the biggest “test” (with the most unknowns) is the inspection. This is the point in a real estate transaction that our sellers stress about the most. What will they find? How much will it cost? Do we have the money to repair whatever it is? Will the buyer back out?
