Prepare to Sell Your Home with a Pre-Sale Home Inspection
Thinking of selling your home? Plan to have a Pre-Sale Professional Home Inspection conducted on your property. A Pre-Sale Professional Home Inspection may identify any unknown problems with the house. This allows the seller to seek competitive bids to fix the problems, rather than rushing to fix everything immediately before a closing, spending extra time and moneyto get things repaired in a hurry.
Pre-listing inspections may eventually become as common as home staging, and the importance of having a home inspection as part of the home sales process. It protects the seller and buyer by providing valuable information so that educated decisions can be made.
Buyers tend to have more confidence when considering a house that has already been inspected
A potential buyer may choose to use the seller’s inspection and decline to have it inspected themselves. This can dramatically speed up a closing date.
Simple upgrades and cosmetic repairs can be identified and done on your own time.
Negotiations between buyers and sellers are often streamlined with a PRE–Sale Professional Home Inspection. There are fewer things up for negotiation as they have already been disclosed and or fixed.
The report generated by a PRE-Sale Professional Home Inspection can contain many positive elements. In effect, the report becomes an additional marketing tool, highlighting the unique features of the house.
If there are unresolved problems identified in a PRE-Sale Professional Home Inspection, the seller can have repair quotes from local qualified contractors printed out and ready, even stapling the quotes to the report. This will head off any attempts by buyers to “lowball” based on the condition of the house.
A Pre-Sale Professional Home Inspection helps the homeowner comply with full-disclosure real estate laws, governed by state laws. By focusing on the condition of your property, you are less likely to overlook a defect or material fact for which you could later be held liable.
