Prepare Your Home For Sale
Spring is almost here and it is the best time of year to sell your home. Checking your foundation for problems before listing your house for sale can help you maintain the value of your home. Maryland law require that sellers inform potential buyers about any problems with the house, including problems with the foundation. Therefore having your home inspected for any foundation problems can help you get the best value for your home.
There are several ways foundation inspection and repair can save you money. First of all, if your foundation has problems it will impact the price of the home appraisal. Since appraisers factor structural integrity into the value of the home, if your foundation is in good condition, your home will be appraised at a higher market value. If the initial market value of your home is higher, it gives you more ability to negotiate a higher sale price for your home. Low appraisal values also make it harder for potential buyers to get financing.
Secondly, if you schedule foundation inspection and repairs before listing you can compare quality contractors and find the best one. You can also more easily negotiate the price without the pressure of a time constraint. You can also schedule any inspections and repairs on your schedule. Using quality contractors, like our certified contractors at AA Action Waterproofing ultimately helps save you time and money.
Finally, since foundation problems can cost homeowners a lot of money, a potential buyer will negotiate a lower price than the home’s value if foundation problems are found. Further a potential buyer may decide not to put in a bid at all if an inspection reveals foundation problems. Lastly, even if a homeowner is willing to take on the house with foundation problems, they may not be able to receive financing or insurance, ultimately making the sale invalid.
Your home is one of your biggest investments. It is important that when you are ready to sell you get the most of out of that investment. There are multiple ways investing in foundation inspection and repair before selling your home can save you money and our experts at AA Action Waterproofing can show you how.
