The Agent you choose REALLY does make a difference

My buyers have been successful in lining up inspectors within a 5 day window. Generally we work with a 10 day period to complete and generate written request for repairs.  But there are a lot of schedules to work around, buyer, seller, agents ---- and inspector -- so it does become more challening when business is booming.

I've already started writing offers with a few more extra days extention on the inspections soley due to the inspector backup...  AND booking the inspection (or parking the spot) while writing an offer.

We dont have any trouble as now lower listings on a whole means lower amounts of sales which means lower amounts of inspections

Hi Michael -- I haven't seen any trouble scheduling a home inspector yet.  There are some other service providers that have been more difficult.

Michael, we used to put down seven days but now are putting 10-14 days to have the inspections conducted as it is very hard to get the good inspectors within  a week now.

Good morning Michael. I don't see any extreme selling area in any of the eight states that I do business. Most of the home inspections are scheduled in 4-5 days.

I wouldn't think it matters if it's seller's market or buyer's market or balanced.  It's more abt the number of offers/contracts (vs. number of inspectors).  I would think that now would be busier than the colder months.

Exceptional service is my standard expectation.

It can be difficult to schedule initial inspections quick enough to have time to then get bids for the items noted that the buyers want to try to be compensated for. A 7 day option/inspection period is the norm for city properties. I have my top 3 inspectors that I recommend and can usually get one into the home within 2-3 days. Sometimes getting the HVAC, Plumbers, Electricions, Foundation or roofers out after teh general inspection is difficult within the 7 days.

As soon as I am writing an offer I start calling to reserve a spot.

Depending on the level of inspection being performed, but I would estimate it at 7 - 10 days.

So far, so good.  We haven't had any problems yet, but last year we did as the season heated up.  Timing got longer and prices seemed to climb for those inspections.
