Hampton Roads Homebuyers Think outside the box when negotiating


Home Inspection addendums are not always about repair request. Some times it may be a call to get creative. In lieu of repairs you may want to:

Ask for a price reduction

Ask for a sellers credit towards closing cost (if your loan will allow it)

Ask for furniture

Ask for the sellers car

Ask for the sellers pet

Ok now I am being silly but you get the idea....... The bottom line is to think outside the box. sometimes there is not enough time for a repair before closing. Sometimes you do not trust the seller to correctly fix an item. It is times like these where thinking out side the box comes in handy.........

This can also be beneficial to a seller who is strapped for cash and does not have the money to make repairs or give credits. Find another item to negotiate thaat the buyer may benefit from.

However buyers, if you for-go a repair remember to address the item as soon as you can after closing especially if it is an item an inspector marked urgent for needing repair.

In the end be sure to go over the report carefully with the inspector so you can understand if there is any potential hazards.

Southern Virginia home buyers Alert is termite swarming season


Did you know Hampton Roads is ranked number 3 worst places for TERMITES!

It is termite swarm-er season and if you do not have a termite contract you may want to contact a company for a quote.

If you are in the process of buying or selling most loans require a clear termite and moisture letter to close. It can be negotiated for either the buyer or seller to be responsible but the letter is usually in order to get a clear to close from lender. Because the problem with termites and moisture can be difficult from Virginia beach to Williamsburg our contracts have verbage that discuss this issue.

Several local companies are running SPRING SPECIALS on treatments, letters, or annual contracts.

Priority Pest Control http://prioritypest.com 757-204-4523

Reliance Pest Control http://reliancepest.com 757-485-5005

At one time or another even the cleanest house can have ants, spiders, insects, and termites. It is better to treat it quickly before it becomes a problem.

It is helpful if you learn the difference between an Ant and a termite see diagram on right.

If you live in the Hampton Roads area it is highly advised that you have an annual termite inspection.
