Home inspections are absolutely critical to the sale or purchase of a home. However, issues can often arise, and we want to be here to help you deal with them.

Usually during an inspection, the inspector will find systems or appliances that are old and defunct. However, the definition of a 'material defect' does not include appliances that are simply too old and breaking down. With this being said, buyers can only ask the seller to repair material defects, so you could not technically demand a new furnace from the seller if it is simply too old and needs replacing. 

This is why you need a knowledgeable real estate agent. They know how to leverage a home inspection report with the seller, and this will often get you a better deal on the home. No matter how good or bad a home inspection comes back, there is always a way to use it your advantage in a sale.
