Need Help Buying Your Next Wallburg Home?

8/31/2020 (Permalink)

Buying a home can be scary but know who to call to help is critical in finding any hidden issues.

The housing market has been booming recently, and many prospective homebuyers compete for the limited inventory of homes available. So, how do you know if you’re getting a good deal on a home or if the property has had issues like a previous water loss?
First and foremost: hire a reputable home inspector. A home inspector can determine the extent of any problems a property has, as well as if it’s a past issue or ongoing issues before you close. Some of the issues a home inspector can spot are pests, water damage, mold, or structural issues. If the inspector found a lot (or very few problems), it wouldn’t hurt to get a second opinion. This way, you can get a full sense of any underlying issues.

Once you have a list of issues, you need to contact the experts in those fields to assess the damage. At SERVPRO of Lexington/Thomasville our team offers no-cost assessments of water and fire damage and mold inspections. We can then assist you with an estimate for repair to help you determine your starting bid amount.
Make sure you consult with your realtor and attorney during this process. You may also request the home seller make these repairs before your offer is finalized.

If you would like to learn more about our free assessments to help your home buying process a bit easier, give the experts at SERVPRO of Lexington/Thomasville a call at 336-224-25645 because they are here to help.
