How to Buy a House in Henderson Nevada

Green Valley Ranch Henderson NV

 

 

For the last 16 years I have worked in the local Henderson real estate market everyday and today I had a huge AHA moment. We as agents who do the sales process every day in and out and can change our business practices with the shifts without missing a beat. This includes the new unusual contingencies we have to remove, timeframes, multiple offers, odd counters and much more that we all deal with everyday. Well today I had to take a step back and realize that our clients are not as comfortable with the common local market place practices as we are. Well picture this: We have been working with a family relocating to the Las Vegas area for a few weeks taking the steps to best help them like going over their needs and wants, setting them on a customized search, sending  homes to view online, doing further research on homes that they love, and answering all their questions about the area. We have helped 1000’s of clients relocating to the Las Vega Valley including Henderson for over 16 years. We have this process down and have many resources in place for our clients to make this a positive experience. This was going to be a piece of cake to help this family with a smooth transition.The day finally came when they made the call that they were going to make long treck to come visit homes. We heard from them on a Tuesday that they were going to travel to Henderson in two days. In those two days we worked to set everything into motion for our clients to take advantage of the short period of time that they would be here. We set up several appointments with listing agents to view homes and even planned time for any changes or obstacles that might happen during the home hunt. During their quick home search we were very lucky to narrow the search to our top 3 homes. Which is awesome!! Wait this is where the moment happens. This particular relocation buyer was referred to us from a out of state lender that not many local agents have heard of. When the client was ready we sat down with them and went over the entire offer, went over the offer process, went over offer timelines and requested an updated lender letter to send with the offer. Same process that we use with all of our clients. Now this is the tricky part: When we submitted the offer to the listing agent their first concern was the buyer’s lender. In recent years in the Las Vegas area it is a common practice for listing agents to request the buyer speak with a local preferred lender to get a 2nd opinion. This has come into place as a result of the hard hit market we had in 2008. Several buyers who are now buying homes in Henderson had a short sale, job loss, foreclosure or hit by some bad luck on their credit. This is the step that our relocation buyer’s could not understand. They are relocating from a state that wasn’t hit hard during the recession era of 2008. Their local real estate market has not had to shift into steps like this. They were very offended that the seller would require them to speak with a local lender when they want to use their own lender. Luckily we were able to fight for our client through negotiations to remove the contingency. This AHA moment is a lesson learned that an event that seems so harmless and necessary to us the Agents in a transaction is huge and personal to our clients. This subject is now going to have a bigger impact in our Buyer and Seller Consultations going forward. Today in the mastermind group that I run in the office this was a hot topic between the experienced agents and helpful to all the new agents as a new best practice. And I hope that this helps all the other agents out there who are in a market where this is occurring.

Snow on the Henderson Nevada Mountains

How is the  Henderson Nevada Real Estate Market?

I work in the Henderson Nevada market every day helping buyers and Sellers; Don’t you want a Realtor working for you who knows the market?

It was pretty amazing to wake up to the Henderson McCullough mountains blanketed in snow this morning. Just a few days ago we were lounging around in 70 degree sunny warm weather. This storm before the calm of the summer months is odd for us. However in the world of real estate right now it is the opposite. We are in the calm before the storm. If you are thinking of selling your home in the spring? Why wait until everyone else is selling, too? This would be the storm of real estate months. We are advising our clients to get a head start on the crazy spring selling season by listing their homes strategically earlier than the rest. The buyers are out there right now, and they’re ready to move. Call Ernie Gonzales 702-291-8126 or message us so that you can get ahead in this competitive market.

Average Cost of a Home Inspection

Search Homes

Dollar Sign

$300

What is the average cost of a home inspection?

The average cost of a home inspection varies however typically between $300- $450. There are many factors that can change the average cost of a home inspection. Such as;

  • the size and square footage of the home and lot
  • Is it an older home?
  • Is it newer home with high tech gadgets?
  • Are there any additions to the home? Permitted or not?
  • Does the home have a pool or spa? Or both?
  • Is it a custom home with many features?
  • Is it a horse property?
  • Are there any out buildings? Such as barns, casita, pool house, etc.
  • Well or septic system?
  • Is it a fixer upper home?
  • Does the home have water damage?
  • Doe the home have an attic space?
  • Does the home have a basement?
  • What type of foundation does the home have?
  • Does the home have an attached garage or detached garage?
  • Does the home have RV Parking hookups or garage?

A home inspection is an important aspect of purchasing a home and should never be a decision that you make based on the price. In the long run the few hundred dollars that you save on a discounted home inspection or choosing to not do it all together could cost you thousands in the end. A good quality home inspector can detect areas of concern that you might not be able to see when viewing the home. There are a list of 15 questions that you should ask any potential home inspector that you are interviewing to inspect your new home. Find the list of questions here. Use the answers and what your needs or concerns are to pick your home inspector.

Just a quick story about how the average cost of a home inspection was far less than what the outcome could have been for one of our clients. One of our client’s who we were helping to purchase a home in Henderson hired a home inspection company to come out to inspect the home during the due diligence period. During the inspection of the 5 bedroom/4 bathroom 3000 square foot home the inspector detected a water leak under the foundation of the house. This water leak was not visible to anyone except the professional home inspector. The Seller had already moved out of the home so he had no idea that there was a water leak. Based on the home inspection report we were able to send the seller a repair request for the leak to be completely repaired by a licensed plumber. The Seller agreed and hired a licensed plumber to repair the issue. Once the repairs were made the seller sent an invoice on the letter head of the licensed plumber for confirmation that the repairs were completed to our satisfaction. The amount the seller paid in repairs turned out to be $2700. Way more than the $400 that our client paid for the home inspection. I tell this story to hope you will see that the average cost of a home inspection is not what should help you make the decision to get one or not.

There are thousands of local home inspectors and navigating through them can be overwhelming to say the least. It is always a good idea to ask friends and family for referrals. And remember to ask your real estate agent for referrals to home inspectors that they have used with past clients. Find a list of top rated Henderson Nevada home inspection companies here.

We would love to earn your trust to represent you when you buy or sell a Henderson Nevada home. Please contact Ernie Gonzales ernie@gonzalesteam.com or 702-291-8126.

Why is a Home Inspection Important

Search Homes

Why is a Home Inspection Important?

As a real estate agent I can’t express how important obtaining a home inspection is in both buying and selling a home. And yes that is not a typo I did say in both buying and selling a home. believe it or not I have had clients decline the option to request a home inspection on their contract to purchase a home. Buying a home is a major purchase and I suggest that you know what you are getting into before you own it. At the least the home inspection can at least shed some light onto what you will need to address once the home is yours. As a seller it will be an eye opener. Find a list of top rated home inspectors.

Why do I need a home inspection when buying a Home

For the most obvious reason when you are purchasing a new home home it is smart to obtain a home inspection to protect yourself from major structural, electrical, or water damage. The other cosmetic stuff is nice to know also. When you are buying a home in Henderson and you have negotiated the contract you will have a due diligence period in which to have all inspections completed. On the contract there are many different types of inspections that you can request such as mechanical inspection, structural inspection, pool/spa inspection, and termite inspection just to name a few. You as the buyer can request as many inspections as you want however it is typically the buyers responsibility to pay for them. The best way to determine what type of inspections that you might request are based on disclosures from the seller, information about the home on the Multiple Listing Service, information from the neighbors, any damage seen on visual inspection or just anything that concerns you prior to moving into a new home.

How to choose a home inspection company?

When it is time to perform inspections you will have the choice of inspectors to choose from. We have a list of companies that past clients have used to provide to you however you can always use your own company. One thing that I do highly suggest is to always call and interview any inspection company you choose with questions and concerns. Find a list of questions to ask a home inspector.

What is on a home inspection report?

The inspection report is a very thorough report on all the mechanical functions and a visual check of all aspects of the home. These items include but are not limited to; water, electrical, leaks, corrosion, air conditioner, heater, water heater, thermostats, dishwasher, garbage disposal, fire safety, pool and spa, pool equipment, lighting, stove, oven, drywall, and much more.  The inspector is a critical backup to our visit to the home to make sure that we didn’t miss anything when you fell in love and decided to write an offer. Depending upon the home inspection company that you choose to perform the inspection, typically you will receive a 50 page report with photos and a summary page with the items the inspector deems the most concerning. With the summary page in hand you will be able to request repairs from the seller or have the documentation to have an item of concern further inspected. From start to finish the home inspection process can take 1 to 3 hours to complete. This does not always include the final report that you will receive at the end. It could take 24 – 48 hours to receive the final report from the inspector. The only time this could be a concern is if we are close to the end of our due diligence period, however we as your agent will monitor that time frame you. If you choose to perform any other inspections you will also receive a written report with the findings.

How much does a home inspection cost?

Size of home, type of home, age of home and whether there is a pool or spa play a factor into the cost of the home inspection. Every home inspection company has a different matrix on the cost of an inspection however lets say you are purchasing a home with the following statistics: 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2000 square feet, pool and spa the typical cost will be between $350 – $450 for an inspection. You can find companies that cost less however I would caution to ask the questions prior to hiring a home inspection company based on price. Each inspection you choose will be a separate charge and can add up to be pretty expensive. I always suggest to my clients to start with a mechanical inspection and go over any other areas of concern with the inspector and ask if you should inspect it further. This way you have an expert recommending how to address your concerns. List of local home inspectors that our past clients have used.

Should I attend the home inspection?

It is a good idea to attend the inspection if at all possible however it is not necessary. The inspector will be all over the home in the inspection and following them around might distract them from getting to all aspects of the home in the allotted time. I suggest that if you are going to attend the inspection that you show up the last hour to half-hour to have the inspector show you anything that they have found that they think need to be addressed. At this time you will also be able to ask any questions about other areas that concern you. Remember the inspector is working for you. The inspector will walk you through the home and make sure all your questions are answered. If you are unable to attend the inspection, which happens a lot, you will be able to reach out the inspector by phone or email with any questions.

Why do I need a home inspection when selling a Home?

I mentioned that getting a home inspection prior to selling your home is also a good idea. The home inspector can go through the home and be a disinterested third party to help point out repairs that a buyer might see. This can benefit you the seller because you will be able to address any areas of concern prior to the home going on the market. This can translate into a higher offer and more money in your pocket if the buyer doesn’t see any need for discounts due to repairs they will have to address.
