If you are a seller looking to sell your home, we can help you with a pre-listing home inspection. This will allow you to get ahead of issues a buyer might find and it will reduce the likelihood that the deal will fall through.
Benefits Of A Pre-Listing Inspection:
It allows the seller to make repairs before listing the home
Not only will the deal close, but a pre-inspection can help you show the home better, allowing you to sell faster and for more money as things will be fixed and repaired
It helps the seller and/or their agent accurately price the home
Sellers who make repairs or have a clean home inspection are able to ask for more money. Reversely, if issues are revealed and not repaired, the seller can factor the repair costs into the asking price of the home and explain this to buyers.
It ensures a smoother transaction
Whether issues are discovered and repaired or not, the seller will not have surprises come up during the buyer’s home inspection, causing re-negotiations and a delay in the purchase. The more information disclosed ahead of time, the smoother the transaction will be and neither side will be hit with surprises.
It is a great marketing tool
By promoting that you have had a pre-inspection, sellers and their agents are viewed as more trustworthy as they are not trying to hide anything. Also, if nothing is found during the pre-inspection, the home can be marketed as clean and issue-free
It saves the seller money
Often, if issues are discovered during the buyer’s home inspection, both sides will enter into negotiations to determine who will cover repairs. In general, buyers tend to overestimate the costs of repairs, causing the seller to have to drop the price more than they would have paid to have the repairs made before hand.
A pre-listing inspection not only protects sellers, it can help you sell your home faster and for more money. Make sure you are aware of any potential issues and don’t be caught in negotiations to make repairs that you were not planning on. Schedule your pre-listing inspection today by calling 913-653-0996.
