Clearwater Florida Home Buyers Get Inspection – Avoid Costly Mistake

Clearwater Florida Real Estate –  You’ve heard us write about the need for thorough Clearwater home inspections and about Clearwater FL Pool Home inspections and how valuable we think the are when purchasing any home in Clearwater Florida.

Well, another example happened recently that only solidifies the point that a home inspection is ALWAYS worth the money in our opinion.

We have a Clearwater home buyer who we were helping buy an older canal get-a-way home with a great waterfront view and boat dock out back. This Clearwater waterfront property represented a great value for this home buyer and he was anxious to close the real estate deal because he just knew this distressed waterfront house was worth at least $150,000 more than he was going to pay for it – a bargain by most people’s standards here in the Tampa Bay area.

Clearwater Homes – Buyers Get Better Bargain after Home Inspections

Fortunately for this Clearwater home buyer, we insisted upon a home inspection and in slowing down the home purchase process to make sure the buyer would still be happy with his real estate purchase in a few months or years.

Until you have a thorough home inspection there are so many unknowns and unanswered questions.  Do you realize the new Florida roofing codes of October 2007 can mean replacing a roof on a home you’re thinking of  buying could be double what you were planning on?  As we’ve said before – we’re not about selling any one house, we’re about helping people find their Clearwater dream home so they are happy for the long haul.

As you might expect, this older Clearwater waterfront home needed quite a bit of work and the cost of these items quickly ate up the “savings” the buyer was expecting to have. Remember it’s always – Home Buyer Beware and inspections give you the information you need to make informed decisions and allow you to avoid costly mistakes.

So what happened, well now, we are re-negotiating a new deal on this Clearwater waterfront property based on the facts and the home buyer is so happy he listened to our advice.

  2. Jack – A good inspector can not only find any defects and potential problems, they are a great resource for information. They see so many homes, they often know specifics about areas. Protecting your clients interest is what makes you the preferred Real Estate Experts.

  3. Jack – I can’t imagine buying a home without a thorough home inspection. Good buyers agents such as you and Cyndee always insist on them and for good reason. The repairs can really add up fast. – Ashley

  4. The home inspection is so important. It is so easy to fall in love with a new home. You must use your head when purchasing a new home. A home inspection is similar to seeing your family doctor. Its an overall check-up for your house, you will find out the life expectancy of your appliances. roof, HVAC etc.. This information is priceless when negotiating the price of your new home.
