7 Home Inspection Red Flags


A home inspection is serious business. It’s the buyer’s opportunity to make sure that the house they’re about to purchase doesn’t hold any expensive surprises. A home inspection is a buyer’s opportunity to see if any problems lurk that may prove expensive to fix later. Home inspections nearly always uncover something in a home to watch for or minor repairs needed.nx4ioph0yx48_womanwithplumberlookingundersink4-web

A typical home inspection includes a check of a house’s structural and mechanical condition, from the roof to the foundation. Depending on the seriousness of what the inspection uncovers, the buyer can walk away from the deal (most contracts include an inspection contingency in the event of major flaws) or negotiate with the seller for the necessary repairs.

These are some red flags that should send a buyer back to the negotiating table.

1. Termites and other live-in pests: The home you’ve fallen in love with may also be adored by the local termite population. The sooner termites are detected, the better. The same goes for other wood-devouring pest. Keep in mind that getting rid of the intruders is just the first step. Once the problem has been addressed, have a pest control expert advise you on what needs to be done in order to prevent their return.

2. Drainage issues: Poor drainage can lead to wood rot, wet basements, perennially wet crawlspaces and major mold growth. Problems are usually caused by missing or damaged gutters and downspouts, or improper grading at ground level. Correcting grading and replacing gutters is a lot less costly than undoing damage caused by the accumulation of moisture.

3. Pervasive mold: Where moisture collects, so grows mold, a threat to human health as well as to a home’s structure. Improper ventilation can be the culprit in smaller, more contained spaces, such as bathrooms. But think twice about buying a property where mold is pervasive — that’s a sign of long-term moisture issues.

4. Faulty foundation: A cracked or crumbling foundation calls for attention and repair, with costs ranging from moderate to astronomically expensive. The topper of foundation expenses is the foundation that needs to be replaced altogether — a possibility if you insist on shopping “historic” properties. Be aware that their beautiful details and old-fashioned charms may come with epic underlying expenses.

6. Worn-out roofing: Enter any sale agreement with an awareness of your own cost tolerance for roof repair versus replacement. The age and type of roofing material will figure into your home inspector’s findings, as well as the price tag of repair or replacement.

7. Outdated wiring: Home inspectors will typically open and inspect the main electrical panel, looking for overloaded circuits, proper grounding and the presence of any trouble spots like aluminum branch circuit wiring, a serious fire hazard.

Have we just passed the bottom of the housing market?


Why some buyers in South Lake Tahoe are feeling like they missed out.

Mortgage rates and home prices are on the rise, and some home buyers who were waiting around for the housing market to reach bottom are realizing now they may have missed the boat.

Mortgage rates are inching up, with the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaging 3.91 percent last week — up from 3.3 percent in early May, according to mortgage giant Freddie Mac.

“It’s unlikely that rates will ever be that low again,” says Doug Duncan, Fannie Mae’s chief economist.

The Fed has been keeping interest rates at record lows by buying up to $85 billion a month in Treasury bonds and mortgage-backed securities, which has helped bolster the housing market.

“Up until recently, expectations were that the Fed would begin to taper purchases of mortgage-backed securities and Treasury bonds late in 2013, but that time frame appears to have moved to September, possibly sooner,” says Keith Gumbinger, vice president of, a mortgage information company.

As the economy continues to gain traction, interest rates are expected to continue to increase, Gumbinger says, since low rates often are associated with a distressed economy.

But even if mortgage rates move up a percentage point or two, housing experts note that mortgage rates will still be low by historical standards.

“The 30-year (mortgage rate) hit a 37-year low in 2003 at 5.23 percent,” Gumbinger says. “That was the previous low-watermark prior to this financial crisis, and it’s likely we will move closer to that mark as we grind forward.”

Low inventory of Homes for Sale in South Lake Tahoe


The first official day of Spring may still be a few days away, but the Spring housing market is already underway. Buyer traffic is rising along with home prices, but one traditional Spring phenomenon is sorely absent: rising supply. The raw number of homes for sale is now at its lowest level in over 13 years, according to the National Association of Realtors, and the numbers continue to fall.

Supplies are down across the nation. In South Lake Tahoe listings are down 45.9% percent from a year ago causing fierce competition among home buyers.

Months Supply of Inventory in South Lake Tahoe


It’s a seller’s market again. We have very low inventory and almost no distressed homes on the market. Most properties that are being listed are going into escrow within a few days and in many cases receiving multiple-offers.

As a result, short sales, where the home is sold for less than the value of the mortgage, are rising as a share of total distressed sales, while bank-owned home sales are falling. Investors are now competing for such little supply that they are ironically pricing themselves out of the market.

We are seeing this trend all over the country and it’s the same story in South Lake Tahoe CA, where there were 419 listings in March of last year and just 264 listings on the market today. Real estate agents are doubting that they will see a surge in inventory this Spring.

Number of Homes for Sale in South Lake Tahoe


If you’re a homeowner in South Lake Tahoe and were considering selling your home, right now is great time to put your home on the market.
