Everyone aspires to obtain a piece of real estate they can call home. However in the Vancouver real estate market what was a common practice of a real estate transaction like having the time to obtain a home inspection, financing and insurance, these subject conditions are increasingly being ignored and exposing many home buyers to increased financial risk .
Bidding wars, time restraints, subject free offers and the presumed fear of losing out, are just some of the many dilemmas prospective home buyers are encountering.
With these conditions combined with a seller’s market, many prospective home buyers find themselves under tremendous pressure to make a decision quickly, without knowing any details about the home except for what they see and read through disclosure statements.
As a prospective buyer, when you are viewing a home that shows really well, and everything looks beautiful and move in ready, it is quite easy to overlook potential problems if you are not aware of them.
As a savvy home buyer you should consider that what appears to look fantastic on the surface, may not be conducive to the whole home and unbeknownst to you and quite possibly the seller, dangerous safety concerns, costly repairs, or neglected maintenance issues may exist, and deciding to proceed without knowing if any of these problems exist, could have devastating financial and/or safety ramifications for you and your family.
