Q&A: What Seller expenses can I expect to pay after a home inspection?

Question: What Seller expenses can I expect to pay after a home inspection?
I am currently in the process of selling my home. The buyers will be getting a home inspection done on the property within the next week. What kind of expenses and potentially how much should I expect to pay after the inspection is done? My house is only 10 years old, and has no major issues that I’m aware of. 

Any help would be great, this is the first time I have sold a home. Thank you!

Best answer: Whatever repairs and/or maintenance issues the buyers request be remidiated are negotiable. Meaning that you could decide to take care of it before closing, you could give the buyer a $$ credit at closing or refuse to do anything. 

It depends alot on the buyers. Some have a huge list of meaningless things and some only care that the home is solid. Make sure to get several estimates before making a decision.

Q&A: Can a buyer be present during the home inspection ?

Question: Can I be present during the home inspection as a buyer ?
1) Can I be present during the home inspection as a buyer ?

2) Can I be going around with the home inspector and see what he is doing during the inspection time ?

3) Can I bug him and ask each and every question when he is inspecting ? Hopefully people don’t get annoyed because of this. Just wondering since I am a first time home buyer and does not know much about home.

4) Any questions I should be asking ?

You not only can, you most definitely should. You’re paying for the inspection, after all.
