Briefly about me! After living out of the country for 12 years in Indonesia, Pakistan and Dubai, my husband and I returned to Houston. I opened a retail store in Old Town Katy "Imagine That Creations" a one stop decorating accessories center. I worked with clients and Realtors, decorating and consulting for 5 years before deciding to close the doors in 2006 and get my real estate license.

2009 I started my own brokerage Imagine Realty International with the intent of creating a place where agents could thrive and clients received the best service available with an International reach as well as expat perspective. 2018 we were honored to be asked to represent Engel & Völkers International (the #1 International Luxury brand in the world) in the Katy, West Houston areas

Is seller allow to deny the buyer an option period?

Sure he can, everything on the contract is negotiable except the names and legal description. But why would they? More details would have been nice. I have had properties under contract that were for investors where there was no option period so the buyers had to do the inspections prior to making the offer but it has been extremely rare.

Should home inspectors be banned from providing repair cost estimates when they are not necessarily general contractors?

Great question.... I do not like it when the inspector gives the buyer price opinions because like with everything the rates can vary depending on who you hire, so the inspector says it\'s going to cost $300 to fix something and then the buyer hires someone to do the work and it\'s more like $600... Now what? The inspector is hired to inspect and that is all. If quotes are needed the get then help the buyer get quotes from people that could do the work so they know where they stand for real. Now if the inspector is a General contractor and is willing to do the work for the price quoted that might be a different story because I would hope a contractor that went to the trouble to get a license with the state wouldn\'t take the chance of falsifying a report just to drum up business.

What is your opinion on the agent attending the home inspection and walking through with the Buyer and inspector?

This is one question that comes up a lot. I used to go to every inspection for years when I was an active agent. A few years back legal experts advised against it and I fought the idea for a few more years...thinking it was my obligation to be there. Now that I have agents working under me it is an office policy that they cannot attend, they can go and open the door for the inspector if needed but to be there or to make comments on the report is not allowed. The relationship between the inspector and the buyer has nothing to do with the relationship between the buyer and the matter how we feel we need to be a part of it. Now, I will council agents/buyers to be aware of what should be risk or items that could cost a lot to replace or repair...elec, roof, AC/heat etc. items of less value that the buyer could do themselves, well that might be left off the list so the seller can concentrate on the more important items. From the agent/Broker stand point it is all about limiting exposure to law suits when it comes to attending the inspection. We have been \"not attending\" for the past 6 years and has worked out great so far.
