One of the many dilemmas of house hunting is going on inspection trips with an agent, it’s undoubtedly a day job for many, could be extended as you might not get to see a property you are interested in.
It has become habitual for street agents to take clients around their properties hoping to change their minds despite having the clients.
It’s long also receiving the clients in our office, saying that they need a house on their budget, but when we carry them to visit; we can spend a day moving from one house to another or place to the place without selecting any house.
So how do you navigate saving time, cost, and energy when it comes to property inspection.
Start by preparing a checklist of things you need to look out for, a better alternative is to go along with a third party or partner that can point out things you might likely miss.
It’s better to check on eMall Property‘s latest listings and select any property you need to live in before scheduling visiting. You can stay in touch also with our Field Agents or Property Manager to get many offers before rushing to visit.
Our agents are always committed to helping in all aspects of property hunting. They will exactly send home images, price, house conditions and you can negotiate the price on the remote.
It’s possible to visit once and get the exceptional house you dreamed of.
First of all, you have to know your budget and location where you want to live. It’s better also to determine when you’ll shift to that house to make negotiation effective.
Here are some things you need to mark on your checklist during inspection:
- Exterior: look through the building and apartment to see obvious cracks, or disfigures that need to be discussed. Check for any structural defect, is there a need for repairs.
- Drainage: You don’t want to get stuck on the road on a rainy day, hence the need to look through the area, ask neighbours if you aren’t familiar with the location to have more information.
- Roof: Ask for the overall state of the ceiling? Look for any sign of leaks or damage.
- Interior: Checkout for wall dampness, evidence of leaks though the window or ceiling. The tile situation, kitchen cabinet, toilet and the bedrooms to see if you need to flag anything.
- Electrical: Are there faulty electrical issues or outlets not working properly, this may require you to go with an expert.
- Plumbing: Check the taps, the flushers to confirm its performance. Look out for anything unusual inn the building.
Now you know what to look out for the next you on the house inspection.
