Home Inspection

Home Inspection

Home Inspection – Home inspections aren’t just for home buyers. Home sellers also gain peace of mind by investing in a thorough home inspection prior to putting a house up for sale. The last minute discovery of problems by a prospective buyer can lead to time delays, loss of a sale, added expenses and can even derail a deal altogether. Your best solution as a home seller is to have a thorough inspection done prior to putting the house on the market. This allows you to take care of issues, make the home more salable, create an atmosphere of a perfectly maintained home with prospective buyers, with the building before they become a problem in negotiating a deal.  Call Plano Texas Handyman at 214-507-3415 to arrange for a pre-sale home inspection.  You can also email me at ted@planotexashandyman.com.  The price we charge is $129.00 for a 142 point inspection and then a written estimate of the repairs to get your home the top dollar.  Contact Us for more information

Your house is one of your most important financial assets.  If you are preparing to sell your house, there is good news: You don’t need to spend a lot of money on repairs to realize a strong return.  In our Prepare-to-Sell study, real estate agents told us that it is the small improvements that pay the biggest dividends when a home is sold. The majority of agents who were surveyed normally advise homeowners to do as little as possible – perform touch-ups on floor tiling instead of replacing the entire floor; shampoo the carpets instead of replacing them. However, if the homeowner and their real estate agent determine that the condition of certain areas is deemed to be too poor, more extensive work may provide the greatest benefit.  The following is a summary of the results of  2012 national survey, based on the 12 areas of home improvement identified by real estate agents in this original survey in 2013. They are listed from the highest to lowest returns on investment:

Clean & De-Clutter $150 $1500 800% 98%
Lighten & Brighten $350 $1250 570% 82%
