Benefits of having a Pre-Listing or Pre-Sale Inspection:
Having your home inspected before you buy it is known and practiced by every smart home buyer. What about having a home inspection before you list or try and sell your property? Here are some benefits of having a certified home inspection before you sell your property that could save you time and money in the long run.
Most potential buyers will have an inspection performed, and issues discovered in the inspection might turn up that need to be resolved before a deal is reached on the purchase of the property.
Having a home inspection performed before putting your property on the market can be advantageous. Getting a heads up on any repairs that need to be done and might be found out by a buyers inspection can fascilitate a quicker deal without any delays.
Used as a marketing tool in your home sale and as a way of instilling good faith to your prospective buyers, a pre-listing home inspection included in your advertising is a way of showing good faith.
If there are any repairs that are you are unable to complete before putting your property on the market you can adjust your negotiations and asking price, allowing you to be upfront and transparent with your buyers. Having this home inspection could eliminate any surprises that might cause the buyer cancel the deal or try and negotiate a lower price.
Getting the best deal for your home is the main advantage of having your own home inspection done by a certified home inspector and is a proactive and smart thing to do aleviating any unforseen problems and fascilitating a good outcome for all concerned.
Some other reasons for getting a home seller inspection are:
- Being prepared for the sale – problems that are discovered can be addressed and repaired or improved on your own time schedule.
- Many homes that receive a pre-sale inspection are on the market for less time and sell closer to the listing price advertised.
- A better understanding of the home can be provided to any prospective buyer from our inspection report resulting in fewer negotiations over price. An inspection report can also attract prospective buyers from purchasing homes that do not provide this report.
- Supplying you with knowledge and understanding is our mission and is as easy as contacting us via phone or e mail. Using an inexperienced inspector who is not knowledgeable could result in attempts to exaggerate issues including repair costs. Make sure that your home inspection is done by an interNACHI certified home inspector.
- Be prepared and ready in case of surprises or problems uncovered by the buyer’s inspector. This could potentially cause delays in closing, and you may end up paying for repairs at the last minute, or accept a lower price on your home.Learn why you should include an owner home inspection for maintenance, repairs, renovations or upgrades to your existing property.
