A home inspection represents a key stage during the homebuying journey. This inspection enables you to examine a house with a professional property inspector. And if you discover minor or major property issues, you can ask a seller to perform repairs. Or, you may choose to reduce your initial home offer or rescind your proposal.

Ultimately, it pays to be diligent during a home inspection. If you perform an in-depth assessment of a house, you can understand whether this residence is the right choice.

On the other hand, there may be property problems that you identify during a home inspection that you won't ask a seller to repair. These issues may include:

1. Cosmetic Problems

If you ask a home seller to perform cosmetic repairs, the seller may choose to walk away from your homebuying proposal. And if this happens, you could lose your dream house to a rival homebuyer.

There is no need to jeopardize a home sale due to a cracked floor tile, a deck that needs to be stained or other cosmetic problems. Instead, plan to perform cosmetic repairs on your own.

In addition, keep in mind that many cosmetic issues are quick and easy to fix and won't require you to break your budget. This means you likely will have no trouble completing myriad cosmetic repairs after you close on a home.

2. Loose Fixtures

A loose doorknob or light fixture can be frustrating. And as you walk through a house during an inspection, you may feel like repairing a loose fixture is a top priority.

Loose fixtures generally require simple hand tools to repair, and problems with these fixtures frequently can be solved in just minutes. As such, you may want to focus your attention on bigger and potentially more expensive home repairs as you determine which property repair requests to submit to a seller.

Of course, if a loose fixture creates a safety hazard, you should not hesitate to ask the seller to fix this problem. Because if a hazardous fixture remains in place, it may put your health and safety at risk.

3.Non-Functional Light Switch

A non-functional light switch may raise red flags as you inspect a house. But in many instances, this problem is minor.

If you notice a non-functional light switch during a home inspection, there usually is no need to worry. In fact, a property inspector typically can tell you whether a home's electrical system is safe to use and up to code.

For homebuyers who are uncertain about how to proceed with a residence following an inspection, it pays to consult with a real estate agent. This housing market professional can offer expert tips to help you make informed decisions at each stage of the homebuying journey.

Consider your potential property repair requests following a home inspection. By doing so, you can prioritize major property repairs and increase the likelihood that you and the seller can find common ground as you work toward finalizing a purchase agreement.

Pets have different grooming and dietary needs as well as different exercise and social habits. Just like humans, pets also have diverse temperaments and personalities. Own a large Rottweiler or German Shepherd and you may be better off living in a house that has a large back yard, as these dogs need lots of room to roam, play and exercise to thrive. Smaller pets, like a Chihuahua or a Beagle, may be easier to groom but drive your neighbors nuts with their constant barking while you’re away. Each of these dogs looks cute while a puppy. Yet, each requires regular care. If you’re a busy homeowner who’s looking for a perfect pet to call your own, consider these pets: • Turtles – Choices available to you for pet turtles include land and water turtles. Some small turtles, like the red ear slider live 40 or more years. Large, land turtles can live hundreds of years. If you get a water turtle, upgrade the tank or aquarium as the turtle grows. Make sure that the aquarium is large enough for the turtle to swim freely in. You may have to clean the tank once a month, depending on the filters that you use. • Fish – Similar to turtles, fish are relatively easy to care for. There are small fish that have lived several years, especially when given good care and affection. Avoid over feeding fish. Have fun decorating their tank and watching them swim and play. • Cats – While kittens, these pets rarely stay still, pouncing on nearly anything that moves. Grown cats tend to be independent and can keep themselves quite entertained. Yet, they do appreciate and enjoy love and affection just like other pets. A litter box, cat food, scratching rod, toys, perching area and a sleeping bed are items that cats need. • Dogs that don’t bark a lot – Pugs, Chinese Shar-Peis, Rhodesian Ridgebacks, whippets and golden retrievers are amongst dogs low on the barking scale. These dogs offer companionship without keeping you or the neighbors jittery or up at night. • Hamster – The lifespan for a hamster is about two to three years. These animals are small, needing little room for play and exercise. They especially make good pets for young children. Because they can stay in a cage, you won’t have to worry about them messing up your house. They can also look out for themselves while you’re at work. • Parrots – This is another pet that can stay in a cage while you are away. Parrots can live up to 80 years. Opt for a cage that gives a parrot room to fly. Consider taking the bird outdoors in a cage once a week. They don’t talk. They rarely cry and you won’t hear them complain, but pets have needs, both physical and emotional. Before buying a pet, ask a pet store clerk to tell you the grooming, exercise and daily care that the pet you’re thinking about getting needs. You can also read books or search the web to find information about the particular pet you’re thinking about bringing home. Avoid getting a pet simply because your kids beg you to. Make sure that your everyone in your family wants the pet and will do her or his part to help care for and clean up after the pet.

You may think that building a fence on your property will be a great idea. Whether you have a dog and want them to be able to roam free in the yard, or are just looking to get some more privacy, there’s things you should have in place before you build a fence. 


Have An Idea Of What You Want


Once you know why you want to install the fence, you can decide what type of fence you’ll need. Do you want a basic chain link fence? Are there regulations on what type of fence you need to put up around your pool? Does your HOA require that you check with them before you install a fence? You’ll need to answer these questions and fill your own desires in order to get the type of fence that you want. 


Decide On What Material You Need


The material you buy for your fence will decide what kind of maintenance that you’ll have to do in the future. Wooden fences, for example, may need to be stained or painted from time to time. The wood can also warp over time due to rotting. Other materials that you may use for a fence include aluminum, steel, wrought iron and bamboo. Each of these materials has pros and cons including the amount of rusting, and the need for replacement and repairing. 


You Can Mix Fencing Materials


To save money, you can mix your fencing materials up a bit. In the front, you could do a picket fence that’s connected to a chain link fence in the back. Mixing the right fencing materials can look good and work with your finances.  


A Little Research Goes A Long Way


You can talk to people you know in order to find out what’s the best course of action in putting up a fence. Sometimes, even building codes can inhibit what type of fence you’re able to put up. Your friends and neighbors may also have some great advice for you as to what type of fence will be good for your property and needs. 


Use Planted Materials


If putting up a fence seems like a daunting process, you may want to try using bushes and other greenery to make borders on your property. 


Check With Your Neighbors


Be a good neighbor and let them know your plans to put up a fence. Nothing is worse than having a neighborly feud over a few inches of property line or the blocking of a view. You may even be able to go in on building a fence with your neighbor, just make sure that you have an agreement in writing.
