What Is the Number One Deal Killer in Real Estate?

Today we'll talk about the number one deal killer for real estate transactions. I've been doing this for about eight years, and I've seen hundreds of deals. Once the buyer and seller agree on price and terms, the contract gets executed. Then the buyer starts doing their due diligence, which includes the home inspection.

The home inspection is the number one deal killer for all transactions in the pre-owned market. For buyers, this is why we always recommend that you get a home inspection. We really think it's in your best interest to have one so you get a clear idea of the property's condition. Then, if you can't negotiate with the seller on the inspection results, you don't have to buy the home.

For sellers, the home inspection is the most nerve-wracking part of the transaction because once the contract is executed, you don't have any more negotiating power. If you can't come to an agreement with the buyer after the inspection, you will have an uphill battle selling your home. Other potential buyers will want to know what happened and why the previous deal fell through.

That's why we recommend sellers get a home inspection done before they put their home on the market so you can anticipate issues before they arise.

Of course, if the home inspection goes smoothly, everything after that is a piece of cake. If you have any questions, give me a call or send me an email. I would be happy to help you!
