Why Do We Love Trademark Home Inspection?

Atlanta Real Estate Agent
Hey everyone, today we are excited to be joined by Cal Couch from Trademark Home Inspection. He is here to share with us what he and his company do, and how they can be a trusted ally in the real estate transaction process.

Cal is the owner of Trademark Home Inspection, and what they do is inspect homes for prospective buyers in the market who are ready to buy new homes. 

We love Cal's company because of the experience that they bring to the table. Cal has been in the real estate industry for over 15 years and has done thousands of home inspections. They do an excellent, thorough, and complete job on every one of their inspections. They do home inspections for new construction homes and existing homes, and also offer pre-listing inspections as well.

Pre-listing inspections are great if you are trying to sell, because they show to prospective buyers that you were serious and pro-active about any problems in the house, and it eliminates the stress and worry of a home inspection right off the bat.

We are all about giving people a stress-free real estate experience, and Cal and his team do a great job of helping us do that. Trademark Home Inspection can be reached by calling their office at 770-614-6534.

If you have any other questions, feel free to give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you!

Deal-Breakers to Avoid When Selling Your Home

Today I have Cal Couch with me from Trademark Home Inspection and Trademark Pest Control. We're going to be speaking about things that seem to be popping up again and again in our local market here in Atlanta.

One thing that Cal has seen a lot lately that can actually make or break a deal is when sellers aren't cautious about filling out their seller disclosure statement in regard to termites. We recommend that you have your home checked for termites before you put your home on the market. Cal can offer a free pre-inspection on your home. Termite treatments are much less expensive than they used to be, so don't skip this important step. 

On the home inspection side, a lot of lenders are currently concerned about plumbing and electrical wiring being damaged by birds and rodents. These issues take longer to deal with and are more costly than termite inspections.

Another issue we've been dealing with has to do with people's roofs. In the 1990's a product called Atlas Chalet and CertainTeed were put on hundreds of roofs in Atlanta. These products have been damaging roofs and ruining home sales for people across the city, but luckily Cal knows a specialist who's been successful in getting nearly 70% of people's money back who had these defective products in their roof. Ask Cal for the name of this specialist, because he works directly with the company to cover the costs of the defective roofing. 

As always, if you have any questions about these topics you can contact either Cal or myself. We're always happy to assist you!

What's Been Happening in Atlanta Real Estate?

If January is any indication, 2015 is going to be a phenomenal year for real estate sales. Sellers have seen enough appreciation over a few years to sell, and interest rates are phenomenally low. Homes are more affordable than ever. 

If you have been looking to sell your home, be aware that inventory has risen a bit in the last few months. However, with the appreciation over the last 2 years, you may be surprised at what your home is worth now.

For buyers, don't be worried. Low interest rates have kept housing very affordable, and your dollar goes a lot further in today's market with these rates. In addition, there has been great changes in the mortgage industry, with multiple different 3% down payment options now available.
