I’m going to explain the Keego Harbor home selling process and how long the buyers have to get the home inspection done. In our contract that we sign we have a definite period of how long the buyer have to get a Keego Harbor home inspected.
Normal home inspection times range between 7 and 10 days. As a seller want the home inspection to be done as soon as possible. This is one area that the buyer can back out in if the inspection comes back bad. This is one area the buyer can use a simple repair to get out of the contract.
Yes some buyers get buyers remorse. They get nervous whether they made the right choice or if they over paid. The inspection can be a way to get out of the contract
So really if they inspect your Keego Harbor home and find mold the buyer can void the contract. So if it takes them 10 days to get the home inspection done then it is off the market for ten days. So you never want to allow the buyer more than 10 days to get the home inspection done. I like giving only 7 days.
Lawyers can always make a clear contract gray. The gray area here on the date can be if there are more inspections needed or if the results from some of the inspections have not come back. If they have started the home inspection in the 7 - 10 period and they are waiting for results for a radon test, mold test, or water test the buyer is still good. (At least an attorney would be a make a case that they feel within the right period)
Again if there is further inspections needed, like the furnace needs to be checked out by a licensed heating & cooling contractor that may take longer. So inspection periods can be drawn when they are checking out your Keego Harbor home.
After the home inspection the Keego Harbor home buyer has 24-48 hours to tell you whether they are moving forward with buying your home, or to tell you want they want fixed.
So that is how the home inspection process works when selling your Keego Harbor home. If you are looking to sell your lake front home or any home in Oakland County give me a call on my cell (313) 310-9855 to get you started.
