How We Help Potential Buyers
We’ve often heard this question from potential buyers who have found a house they’re interested in and wonder what it would take to resolve the open permits on the house.
Free Initial Walk-Through
Since no two unpermitted houses are built the same, it helps us to be able to see the house and walk through the property to get a sense of how the house was built and what still needs to be done. That’s why we offer a free initial walk-through with the home owner or the potential buyer to provide our first impressions of what needs to be corrected in order for the house to be fully permitted.
In most cases, we ask for information prior to the walk-through so we can do some background research on our own. It gives us a better idea of the property before we even get there.
Review of Plans
We always ask whether there are plans available. We find that if there are blueprints or plans of the house or its unpermitted additions, chances are that it was built according to existing building codes–provided the builder followed the plans.
Being able to review the plans as we are walking through the house allows us to look at how the structure was built and whether it was built per plan.
Consult Your Real Estate Agent
We often get calls from Real Estate Agents on behalf of their clients to assist with permitting issues. Owners or Potential Buyers always want to know how the permits will affect sales or marketability. While we can give you our impressions from our experience, a better resource is to consult with your Real Estate Agent who is familiar with the area and the current market.
We are happy to work with your Agent and include them in any conversations regarding the property. We want you to able to have realistic, honest feedback so you can make informed decisions.
