The other day, I was working with someone who had previously listed with another agent who failed to get their home sold. In my opinion, one of the primary reasons it failed to sell was the way they chose to showcase the property.

One thing I noticed in particular was how shoddy the photographs were. They did not give online buyers a good idea of just how beautiful the home was. When selling, you want to get the best possible marketing photographs of the property. These photos will be the first impression buyers have when searching for homes online.  This is crucial, as 90-95% of buyers begin the home search online!

Today we are going to talk to you all about the home inspection process in Northern Virginia when you’re out there looking to buy a home.


The home inspection process only happens for buyers after they have gone through their due diligence with the seller. Once the buyer and seller agree on the price and terms of their deal, the time comes for the inspection period.


You want to protect your investment and make sure you know what condition the home you're buying is in before you make the deal final. The best way to do this is with a home inspection from a home inspector that is ASHI certified. This is a special certification that holds home inspectors to a higher standard.


When you get your inspection report, there are definitely going to be items listed. However, we recommend that you focus on the big problems and the big systems instead of minor cosmetic issues. Pay special attention to any and all problems associated with your HVAC system, the roof, electric, plumbing, and appliances. You can still ask the seller to repair those smaller items, but it all depends on your particular situation.

If you have any questions for us about home inspections, or would like us to recommend a good home inspector, just give us a call or send us an email. We would be happy to help out in any way we can!
