How to Do Your Own Home Inspection | KT Confidential E118

On today’s podcast, Episode 118, Adrian and Ariel discuss what to look for when doing your own home inspection.

Many of you are probably thinking why on earth would anyone do their own home inspection. It is true, if you have the time and it is possible to have one professionally done we agree that is your best option. But when the market is hot, which it currently, everything moves a little faster and leaves less time for buyers to take all the proper steps and precautions. In the local markets here we can see a house sell in just a couple of days after being listed leaving no time for a home inspection and at best just gives you a 30 minute window when at the showing to inspect the property.

It is for that reason that we want to share the best things to keep in mind when touring a house and what are some common issues or areas to look out for. The most important thing to remember is to SLOW DOWN and make sure not to rush when inspecting a home. It is when we rush that simple things can be easily overlooked and missed leading to bigger issues in the future.

Do home inspections ruin sales, what to look for when at a showing, and the reality of purchasing a home in this market without a home inspection. All of that and more on today’s episode of KT Confidential – Real Estate Podcast.

The founders, Ariel Kormendy and Adrian Trott, started The Kormendy Trott Team, a real estate team based out of Halton region in Ontario, after both being in need of a change from their successful careers in the automotive industry and both experiencing the lack of service being provided in the real estate industry. They kicked off their careers in 2011 and quickly became a top-performing team in the country, ranking 17th of approximately 200 for Century 21 in 2017; as a team of just the two of them compared to much larger teams. They decided that they needed to take their team from being real estate agents in Milton to the rest of the GTA and beyond by expanding and servicing more areas. The team has since grown to have an administrative arm, media department and successful sales team operating a smooth running and successful business.
