Contractors – Finish Your Job!!!


Why Won't Contractors Finish the JOB???

It is beyond frustrating.  You hired a contractor to do a job and for some reason or another, they just don’t come back.


I was at a home inspection this week and one issue was the roofing contractors did not finish up with the city.  They pulled the permit, but he failed to go back to have the city do the final inspection.

Why is this Important???

Our home inspector said the roof is guaranteed for hurricane winds, but since it did not have its final inspection by the city of Virginia Beach, our buyer’s insurance will not cover the damage.  It is beyond maddening.  One simple step missed can cause a homeowner so much grief.

So Now What?

We advised our buyer to ask the seller to take care of this with the roofing contractor since they know each other.  So, in the Home Inspection Removal Addendum, the buyer asked the seller to get roofing company to get the final inspection done by the final walk-through.

Is the Seller’s Agent Happy???

Oh, no.  She’s not, but that’s ok.  My partner (and mom) is a pro at negotiating.  She handles upset agents with finesse by staying calm, but firm.  She can validate with the best of them while never backing down, unless of course, we have permission from our buyer.

Did Our Buyer Win???

We are right smack dab in the middle of negotiations.  We have presented and discussed our buyers needs to the selling agent and the seller has 5 days to get back to us.  Once we hear, you will be the first to know.
