Seller’s Pre-Listing Inspection
Home inspections have the power to send all parties back to the negotiation table. As such, some sellers are taking the precautionary step of having an inspection done before listing the home for sale. Eventually, your buyers are going to request for and conduct an inspection. You may as well know what they are going to find by getting there first.
Be prepared for negotiations and increase your sale price by having your home inspected before listing it for sale. If you decide to make repairs before listing, then you’ll have plenty of time.
-The seller can choose a certified inspector rather than be at the mercy of the buyer’s choice of inspector.
-The seller can schedule the inspections at the seller’s convenience.
-It might alert the seller to any items of immediate concern, such as radon gas or active termite infestation.
-The seller can assist the inspector during the inspection, something normally not done during a buyer’s inspection.
A Different Point Of View
This is your home. You know it better than anyone else. However, there’s still things you might not know or forgot. A home inspection is very helpful because a home inspector is trained to notice things that most people do not think about. We have a lot of experience to count on when assessing any problems you might encounter.
Although it is typically more common for home buyers, pre-listing inspections are becoming the norm.
Avoid The Unexpected And Sell With Self-Assurance
Have negotiations with more authority and get a faster, smoother deal. What you learn from a buyer’s inspection can throw a wrench into your plans. If this happens, then you’ll be under constrains to fix the issue quickly or lower the sale price. If a large issue is discovered, or negotiations aren’t working, then the sale is at risk of failing. When a sale falls through, no one wins in the end.
