home inspection

inspection-background.jpg

We do offer to do a pre-listing home

inspection before listing your home

for sale. Why? Let's explore that. I’m

going to tell you that there are more

good reasons for having an inspection

than not.

As a seller, you know that buyers are

going to need to have a home

inspection conducted before they

agree to purchase the property so

why not beat them to it?

Getting a pre-listing home inspection offers some advantages to sellers that you may not be aware of. The biggest, of course, finding out the

exact condition of the property.

To help you determine whether a

pre-listing inspection is right for

you, consider the pros and cons.

pros for having an inspection:

1. You find out what condition your home is in.

2. Pricing the home accurately is much easier.

3. Minimize stress.

4. You can make repairs.

5. Less likelihood of negotiations.

6. Help improve the buyer’s confidence.

7. It makes my realtor job easier:).

cons for having an inspection:

1. You will have to pay for the pre-listing inspection.**

2. Disclosure laws may require you to disclose any issues.

3. There will be two inspections of your home.

for most sellers a pre-listing inspection

makes sense

                                                  While certain situations                                                            make a pre-listing                                                                    inspection undesirable, for                                                      most sellers a pre-listing                                                          inspection offers too many                                                      benefits to ignore. It is a                                                          proactive step that puts you ahead of the curve, allowing you to see the path ahead of you much more clearly.

You can plan better, rest easier and possibly get a better price on your home.
