Step 9:  Handling Inspections

The buyers of your home will most likely want to have inspections done to make sure they don't buy a home with some surprises.  Don't let the surprise be on you.

Here are some of the inspections that buyers could want:

Building Inspection/Whole Inspections/Systems Inspections/Structural Inspections  The basic home inspection is called different things in different areas!

Wood Destroying Organism Inspection  Normally referred to as a "Termite Inspection", this inspection really covers any insect (termites, carpenter bees, etc.) or organism (ie, wet rot, dry rot, fungus, etc) that can destroy wood in a home. 

Environmental Inspections

Well Water, Septic and Sewer Inspections

This is not a comprehensive list because each home and situation is different!  To avoid surprises, sellers may want to have some inspections done before they start to sell their home so they can make repairs BEFORE a contract is written.
