Pre-Listing Home Inspections
Pre-listing home inspections are beneficial for homeowners who are getting ready to sell a home. If you have lived in a home for many years or if you’ve recently inherited a home, you may need someone who can give you an objective assessment of how your home is doing. Maybe there are areas that require repair or hidden issues you don’t want to be surprised with on a buyer’s inspection report.
Ordering a pre-listing home inspection can give you important intelligence you and your realtor can use before you list a home for sale. Once more, sometimes sellers will accept your inspection making the sales process faster!
Benefits of Pre-Listing Home Inspections
Ordering a pre-listing home inspection has many more pros than it does cons. Having a pre-listing inspection can put the seller in the driver’s seat by giving them more negotiating power, reducing stress and helping market the home.
A pre-listing inspection will include a comprehensive evaluation of the entire home. Having an inspection ahead of time eliminates surprises that can derail a buyer’s contract. You can also use the information to decide whether to fix certain issues or adjust the price of your home, so the buyer may choose how to address the issue. For example, instead of replacing the floor in one room, maybe you offer a lower price so the buyer can pick the floor of their choice.
An inspection can help inform a fair price and signal to buyers that you’ve done your due diligence in disclosing the condition of the home. You can also decide to add additional inspections, such as lead paint, mold, pool, termite, septic system, and others, to sweeten the deal. This upfront work shows you are ready to accept purchase offers from serious buyers.
