Selecting a Building Inspector
As the Ottawa real estate market has moved to a balanced market, purchasers have more time to view properties and potentially go back for a second showing on properties that they are interested in. In addition, conditions in a offer that include a building inspection are now again becoming the norm for Purchasers. This also underscores the importance of Sellers doing a thorough visual inspection of their home’s interior, including attics and crawl spaces and exterior, as well as garages, fences, sheds and other secondary buildings on your property, at least once or twice a year. Some Sellers may consider hiring a building inspector to complete a pre-market inspection.
