Home Inspection | Here at Beryl, we understand that your ideal home might not be in perfect condition quite yet. It’s in a fantastic location; just a few miles from work, the schools are highly rated, and it even comes with more than an acre of land. There’s just one catch — it needs some work. Like all diamonds in the rough, it’s worth it. That’s where we come in.
Beryl provides a full range of home inspection services including structural condition assessments and tie-down inspections, but we also serve as 203k consultants, so we can help you navigate the process of applying for a 203k loan. This FHA loan program lets you borrow money for both purchasing a home and fixing it up with a single loan. Also, our 203k consultants will be able to assess a home and determine what types of upgrades it requires.
However, hiring a 203k consultant to develop a solid remodel plan is only half of this process. Unless you’re a first-time home buyer, you’ll need to sell your current home at about the same time that you purchase your new one., You’ll want to get top dollar for its equity. The easiest and most affordable way to get the highest sale price is to keep your house in good condition.
- Clean Your Roof and Gutters
Leaf and yard debris will clog up your gutters and trap water on the roof. Improve drainage by removing any sticks or leaves that you find atop your home.
- Clean Your Yard
The temperature’s dropping, but you might want to mow your yard one last time just to make sure that it looks nice and crisp for the winter. Removing fallen leaves will also boost your curb appeal.
- Winterize Hoses and Irrigation Lines
If you live in a frost-prone area, you’ll want to winterize hoses by turning off their water supply and storing the hoses indoors. Winterize irrigation lines by hooking up an air compressor to the system and blowing out all of the water — an inexpensive 5 to 6 HP air compressor will pay for itself in just a year or two.
