Packing for a Move

Welcome to my website. I’m hoping to provide you with some useful packing tips. My name is Ellen Monday. My family and I moved from a very large home to a large home. My point being, although we still live in a large house, we did downsize. It was almost like packing for two moves because we had belongings going to the new house and some going to storage. We had to make decisions about what we wanted to keep, store and get rid of. I have some tips on how we made those decisions, and the best ways we found to pack. Items that were going into storage were packed differently than those we were moving to the new house. Boxes had to be carefully and clearly marked so we didn’t end up storing our everyday dishes or something tragic like that! Hope you enjoy my blog.

Why You Should Get A Home Inspection

Aaron Carroll

Not everyone hires a home inspector when they are buying or selling a home, but this could be very important and can be beneficial to you as either the buyer or the seller. A home inspector will look through your home, or a potential home you are interested in purchasing, and will point out anything that may not be up to code or that should be repaired. Some loan companies will not even offer a loan without a home inspection. If you aren't sure if you need a home inspection, read on for some information you can use to help you decide.

To Know About Issues Ahead Of Time

To know ahead of time if you are purchasing a home that has issues, you can hire a home inspector to give you the information you need to know if the home you are purchasing is worth the purchase price. If you find out from the inspector that your potential new home has foundation issues that are going to cost you several thousand dollars, it may be better for you to offer a lower amount of money than what is being asked to cover the cost of the repair. You wouldn't want to pay full price and then find out later about the repairs you are going to have to make.

To Offer A Clean Inspection To A Potential Buyer

If you are selling a home, you should consider getting a home inspection so you can show that your home has a clean inspection and is ready to sell as is. This can be a big selling point, as the potential buyer doesn't have to do their own inspection and can qualify for a home loan because of the home inspection that has already been completed. A clean inspection is a big deal because a potential buyer also doesn't have to worry about making any repairs to the home.

To Catch Major Issues

Minor issues are a part of any home, and there are always going to be minor issues with just about every single home. You want to catch the major issues though, and a home inspector will be able to catch these issues and concerns. These major issues could also come as a surprise to a seller as well, which is also important.

If you aren't sure if you should get a home inspection as a buyer or as a seller, you should definitely consider it. It can be worth the extra cost to both sides for reassurance.
