When you find the property you would like to purchase, I will provide you with market analysis in order to determine a range of the value of the home. When submitting an offer, you will need the following:

Home inspections are used to provide an oppurtunity for a buyer to identify any major issues with a home prio to closing. i will refer a number of reputable local home inspectors and the buyer will decide which one to hire to inspect the home.
The goal of a home inspection is to uncover issues that could not be visually seen when viewing the home prior to the offer. Inspectors won’t tell you if you’re getting a good deal on the home or offer an opinion on the sale price. The purpose of a home inspection is to give the buyer added confidence about the home purchase. an inspector will make you aware of any issues before closing on your new home. A home inspection is a visual assessment of a house’s physical structure and mechanical systems, including the roof, ceilings, walls, floors, windows and doors.
The inspector will check that the heating and air condition systems are functional, test major appliances, examine the plumbing and electrical systems, inspect the attic and basement. There are add-ons depending on each particular home, i.e septic, well, water, pool. The home inspection is done at the buyer’s expense.
