Last year the Grand Rapids area housing market was very competitive. It was not uncommon to have 10 to 15 offers on a house. Buyers were offering cash, going above asking price, writing letters to the seller and doing almost anything to get their dream house. It appears that 2018 will be more of the same! Most people don't think of a home inspector until after they have a signed contract, however we might be able to help get you that signed contract and your new dream home! No I cant give you $20,000 dollars cash to beat the other offers but I can help make your offer a lot more attractive to sellers!
Most sellers are also in the process of buying a house, and in a lot of cases they need the sale of their existing home to go through to be able to buy a new home. In most cases once there is a purchase agreement between the buyer and seller there is a 10 day window for the buyer to do inspections and possibly back out of the deal. To a seller those ten days are stressful, especially if they have an offer on another house.
Here is what we can do. Ink Home Services will inspect a home for you BEFORE you even put a bid on it... sounds a little crazy but here is the advantage: By inspecting the home before you have a contract it allows you to know exactly what you are bidding on, so you can come in with a strong offer! It also allows you the option of waving your inspection period. Normally this is risky however you already inspected the home and know exactly what condition the home is in. Sellers love this because they know that the sale is pretty much guaranteed to go through! Last year Ink Home Services helped several home buyers get their dream home by using this technique! In some of the cases the sellers chose my clients offer over higher offers because my clients waved the inspection period!
