What to do after a lackluster inspection
After your inspection, you’ll want to have a conversation with your Realtor® about the best way to move forward. Based on the extent of the problems discovered during your inspection, your selling price, and other factors, they’ll advise you on the best strategy to prevent delays to closing.
Strategy #1: Do repairs
36% of buyers request the completion of repairs before closing. As such, you should be prepared to take care of reasonable requests, including those that, if not fixed, pose safety hazards (e.g. a battered roof or non-compliant electrical panels).
If your buyer prefers for you to tackle the inspection items before closing, it’s generally good to try to address them. If you choose not to do them and your current buyer walks away, you’ll have to disclose the findings from your inspection to future buyers as well.
