I recommend a Sequim home inspection to all my buyers.  When you buy a home, you’ll want a thorough inspection of the home, the heating and electrical, the plumbing, the structure, the roofing, the crawl space, the appliances that stay, and so on.  If there is anything wrong or any problems, you want to know during the due diligence period.  Newer homes in Sequim are less likely to have serious issues, but older homes could have.

I’ve written a few earlier articles about the Sequim home inspection process and what is involved:

If you do find a serious issue that you want to address with the seller, you must use a form 35R, which is an Inspection Response form.  In that form you can ask the seller to repair the problem, or you might ask for a credit at closing.  If you don’t respond at all within the inspection time period, you automatically waive any right to terminate the transaction based on the Home Inspection Addendum.

When you have mutual acceptance, your buyer’s agent will help you coordinate all the details of your Sequim home inspection and complete the due diligence necessary.
