Sellers should be prepared for the likelihood of buyers hiring a home inspector to inspect the property if it is a market listing. These days there are additional inspection services buyers may choose from to have performed including radon testing, sewer line scoping (camera inspection) and an examination of any fireplaces and chimneys. These may all take place on the same day or over the course of several days, with a radon test requiring that equipment be dropped off and left running in the home for a minimum of 48 hours. These additional services performed may result in more specific repair/remedy requests that buyers request of sellers or a specific dollar adjustment in price or concessions in order for the agreement to move forward to closing.
