Top deficiencies uncovered during home inspections: Part 1 [Video]

Buying or selling a home can be a stressful process for most people. Home inspections provide the peace of mind buyers need to know they’re making the right investment, while sellers can conduct minor to major repairs to boost their sale price. The following series will cover the top deficiencies home inspectors uncover during their work. First, drainage or grading issues are a serious, yet common problem. When water does not properly drain away from your home, it can get trapped in your basement and foundation. In most cases, installing effective gutters will direct water away from your home. Next, leaky or improperly built roofs are another concern. This problem could vary in terms of severity from simple loose shingles to significant water or mold damage. Most realtors say a new or repaired roof can boost your sell price quite a bit. Thanks for watching! Tune in later for the second part in this series.
