1. Radon- Radon is a naturally occurring, radioactive, carcinogenic gas and can sometimes be found in homes, mostly in the basement or the crawl space, and is known to cause lung cancer. It can be found throughout the entire home, too.
2.Black Mold - if you're set on a home with this in it’s inspection report, you can ask the seller to hire a professional to get rid of the mold, and then have it tested again before closing.
3. Termites - Any home with termite damage won’t be an easy sell. And fixing the damage isn’t cheap! If the house has termite damage, a structural engineer will have to inspect the framing and see if it needs additional support.
4. Asbestos -. Homes built before 1975 could have asbestos in the roof penetration sealant, the roofing felt, older tiling. If you have this very serious issue, get an asbestos abatement contractor before closing.
5. Exposed Wiring - This is not a huge issue necessarily, but it can be a safety hazard. Old school wiring is more of a concern!
If you're interested in selling your home, and have any of these potential problems, it wouldn't be a bad idea to go ahead and get it fixed before you put your home on the market. You want potential buyers to feel confident about purchasing your home. But you can also strike a deal with a buyer.

When it comes to providing the utmost in personal service to his clients, Peter Kima is on the cutting edge. This family man's demanding work ethic was passed on from his parents. His mother, a first generation German-American, forged a new life in a strange country. His father, who has not missed a day of work since 1972, led by example. Peter does not rest until he's done everything in his power to help you achieve your goals. As a husband and a father, his understanding of the importance of a family's home is reflected in his every move.
When Peter is not helping one of his clients, he can be found volunteering his time running a charity Lobster Bingo event, cooking burgers at the local Fire Station to benefit the children in the community, delivering dictionaries to every 3rd grade student in Wake County with his Kiwanis Club, collecting school supplies for the needy, or ringing the bell for the Salvation Army. His favorite pastime, however, is spending time with his wife, Jennifer, and their two sons, Cole (12) and Camden (9 going on 20!).
Peter has resided in Germany, California, Georgia, Indiana, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Oregon and Vermont. Having lived in North Carolina for over 10 years, Peter refers to North Carolina as home. Don't underestimate the value of Peter's moving experience. He and his team understand the rigors involved in making a family move. Rely on that experience to help you.
