Buyer Information

PROPERTY INSPECTION

You can include a provision in the sales contract that gives you the right to inspect the mechanical, electrical, plumbing and structural portions of the property.

There are inspection companies that provide services of this type.  You can accompany the inspector to ask questions and receive a written report itemizing any areas of concern.

If repairs are needed, you can request the seller to make them in accordance with the provisions of the sales contract.

HOME WARRANTY

As an additional benefit, some sellers provide a home warranty for the buyer.  This coverage is good for one year on selected items:

  • Central Heating/Cooling System
  • Interior Plumbing
  • Built-in Appliances
  • Electrical System

If the home you choose does not have a home warranty, you can acquire the coverage yourself.

MLS MEMBERS

As a member of the Multiple Listing Service, we can show you ANY property!

If you should see an ad in the paper or a sign in the yard, call us to find out the information.  If you want to see it, we'll show it to you.

FOR SALE BY OWNERS

A property owner trying to sell his/her property themselves is usually doing so in hopes of saving the commission.  Coincidentally, this is the reason a buyer wants to deal directly with a property owner.

Many times a property owner will work with a realtor, even though the property is not listed, if the agent introduces the buyer to the property. Remember, the buyer doesn't pay the commission.

If you should see a FSBO and want the advantages of our services, please let us contact the owner and set the appointment.

NEW HOMES

We can work with most builders and can get all the information you need to make any decisions, but we will need to accompany you to the property on the initial visit.
