The real estate agent and the home inspector work together in servicing the same client; the homebuyer or the home seller. In the case of a homebuyer; both the real estate agent and the home inspector act in a manner to make the homebuyer aware of the advantages and deficiency of the subject property through disclosures and discoveries. Their goal is to protect the homebuyer’s interest and investment in the real estate property and to make sure that the property will not become an endless money pit that requires many repairs and updates after closing the real estate transaction. In the case of a home seller, the real estate agent wants to get the seller the maximum price possible for the property and avoid a potential risk of a buyer backing out from the deal after contract ratification. This can be accomplished by conducting a pre-listing home inspection where through the process of discovery, the inspector will find all deficiencies in the property that might affect the functionality, safety, and value of the real estate property. Armed with inspector’s findings in the home inspection report, the home seller can make a decision to repair and upgrade the property before introducing it to potential buyers; as the saying goes “First impression is golden”. By preparing the property for the market by addressing all deficiencies will help the real estate agent to market it with confidence and ask for the maximum possible price. In addition, it will encourage the potential buyer to offer a competitive price to acquire the property. Also, the homebuyer’s inspector will not be able to find major deficiencies. It is true that two home inspection report will not be the same, but if both were prepared by experienced and qualified inspectors, the differences will be minor and mostly a matter of opinion on items that do not affect the value or the enjoyment of the property.
