Request for Repairs

What is a Request for Repairs?

After you open escrow, the buyer will have their inspection done. It is then common for the buyer to come back and ask for credits or repairs, based off items that were found in the inspection. We prefer to only give credits (not repairs). I will help you go through the items to verify they are legitimate, and that the costs requested to fix are also legitimate. We will cross check with our vendors for their costs on these items to ensure legitimacy. The process may then include some haggling back and forth. We will give them a counter offer, and subsequent counters may follow. The goal is ultimately to keep the buyer satisfied (while of course saving you, the seller, as much money as possible) in exchange for them removing their contingencies – as that brings us closer to completing the sale.

If you have any questions, I am always here to help!
