Buying a home is no small decision. It’s normal for homebuyers to get cold feet and begin doubting their commitment to purchasing a home, especially after a home inspection. Here are some common reasons a buyer can get cold feet before committing to a purchase.
- Inspection finds major problems
- Repairs make buyers reconsider the price
- Non-related financial issues
- Unhappy with post-inspection negotiations
- Home isn’t up to code
As a seller, you can evaluate the contents of the inspector’s report to deal with the common pain points that can scare a potential buyer away. If you proactively tackle these problems before an inspection, your potential buyer will have more confidence committing to your home.
