Tip of the Week: ShowingTime Notes for Sellers
Have you had to reschedule an inspection because you (or your office) did not share the inspection notes for the appointment with your seller? It can be very frustrating for everyone involved.
In the spirit of cooperation, whenever you approve a request for any type of Inspection, please be sure to check for any special notes in the request and forward those to your seller (easiest to do if you are both using the ShowingTime app).
Showing notes from the inspector could include (click here to see a screen shot):
- Have all occupants of the home out during the inspection
- Electrical panel must be accessible
- Attic must be accessible
- Leave the water on
- Furnace, water heater and AC must be operational
- Seal home for specified time to prepare for radon test
If you do not notify the seller of the instructions and they are not followed, it can could delay the inspection contingency time frame and jeopardize the sale of the home.
When in doubt (or any questions), take a moment to call the inspection company. It will benefit everyone involved if the inspection process goes as smooth as possible.
