It’s normal for home inspectors to identify minor defects in a home. But what should you do when your inspector finds more significant problems? This is the step where the buyer and seller can negotiate on what to fix after an inspection.
Share the report with your real estate agent and ask them for advice on what repairs to ask for and what concessions to make. It’s ok to have deal-breakers, but you should prioritize more significant problems when negotiating with a seller. As long as your requests are reasonable, a seller can decide to lower the price or pay for repairs to close the deal.
