Lastly, it is critical to keeprepparttar customer engaged inrepparttar 100026 process. Whenrepparttar 100027 customer is deeply involved with every turn inrepparttar 100028 home buying journey they feel more in control. Forrepparttar 100029 home inspection, this meansrepparttar 100030 buyer must attendrepparttar 100031 inspection. It is interesting to study home inspection complaints. We receive about one complaint for every 500 homes inspected. That is really very few, but remember we are working toward zero! By our definition a complaint is a call from a past customer that could not be solved overrepparttar 100032 phone, but required me to revisitrepparttar 100033 home. In 9 out of 10 complaints,repparttar 100034 customer did not attendrepparttar 100035 inspection!

By not attendingrepparttar 100036 home inspection, buyers have a greatly reduced understanding of not onlyrepparttar 100037 inspection process, but also a reduced understanding of their home. And more bad news, ifrepparttar 100038 buyer did not attendrepparttar 100039 inspection, their real estate professional probably did. Now not only are they unhappy with me, they are also unhappy with their agent!

After more than ten years and 20,000 inspections I can tell you this,repparttar 100040 surest way to a happy customer overrepparttar 100041 long term is:

For some strange reason, otherwise sane and contentious homeowners decide to do their most creative electrical lighting, decorating, and wiring this time of year. Some ofrepparttar more festive observations have been:

Twelve indoor extension cords lying in a garden fountain Eleven lighted candles each behind a curtain Ten cracked cords in a single outlet Nine rocking reindeer sparking on a rooftop Eight unattended potpourri pots a bubbling and a boiling Seven realtors cell phones charging near a wet counter Six spliced wires wrapped with duct tape Five frosty snowmen hanging by frayed wires Four flood lights on a single broken fixture Three space heaters blowing on a Christmas tree Two light bulbs covered with red plastic bags One extension cord draped over a chimney whilerepparttar 100025 fire's a blazing Okay, I confess! I took some liberties in putting this list together. But keep in mind that electrical hazards know no season! Our friends atrepparttar 100026 U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSO) estimate that about 4,000 injuries associated with electric extension cords are treated in hospital emergency rooms each year. They also estimate that each year, about 3,300 residential fires originate in extension cords, killing 50 people and injuring about 270 others. The most frequent causes of such fires are short circuits, overloading, damage, and/or misuse of extension cords.

The real point is, be it in our own homes, homes we visit, or homes we list, keep an eye out forrepparttar 100027 hazards that need to be addressed. Lives depend on it. Plus, if one of your property listings burn torepparttar 100028 ground, it makes for some very difficult disclosures!

Be safe and enjoyrepparttar 100029 holidays! ...more information...
