After you have an accepted offer, you will need to schedule a home inspection. Jeannine or Jessica will be there with you, but we ask buyers to schedule the inspection themselves. Here is the link to the Massachusetts list of state-licensed Home Inspectors.
Here’s a few of the inspectors we have liked for our buyers:
- Donald A Bissex 781 475 8980 Donald@MysticHomeInspection.
- Dana Wilson 774 275 4828 RContonio@Amerispec.net
- Fran Van Den Elzen 781 849 0088 fvdelzen@tigerhomeinspection.
- Mike Arsenault: (978)973-9783
Once your inspection takes place, you may be renegotiating the price you are planning to pay for the home. You probably won’t be renegotiating if you won a competitive bidding situation, but in the majority of cases, this is a point for further negotiations. But, because inspectors are prohibited from discussing how much anything would cost to correct, you will probably need to get back into the house with a contractor/roofer/handyman/arborist/painter/plumber/electrician/etc. to get an estimate for the work that you need to have done.
