In today's housing market, Buyers often request a home inspection as a part of the purchase offer. Sometimes, the results of that inspection can wreck an otherwise solid deal. If you are considering selling your home, you might want to consider a Pre-Listing Inspection. It may cost a few hundred dollars upfront but will help you avoid surprises once your home has an accepted offer. Additionally, the money that you invest may return to you in the form of a higher asking price if a buyer knows that your home is in tip top shape because all necessary repairs have been made.
Having your home pre-inspected will allow you time to get estimates for work that needs to be done on your home, insuring the best price for repairs. You won't be scrambling around at the last minute trying to get the things done that a home inspection might reveal. Moving is stressful enough without having unforeseen expenses and time crunches thrown into the process. Potential buyers will appreciate either knowing up front what things are needed on the home or that those repairs have already been detected and dealt with before they make an offer. In addition, marketing your home as "pre-inspected" may give you an edge over your competition.
If you are considering placing your house on the market, pre-inspection is definitely something to think about. And as you contemplate, we hope you will consider partnering with us in the selling process. We would love to assist you!
