We offer current homeowners who are getting ready to list their home for sale a pre-listing inspection so that you are ahead of the game once you start getting interested buyers. You'll know before you put your home on the market if there is anything that would be flagged during a buyer inspection. Being pro-active and fixing any issues ahead of time can reduce the likelihood of someone backing out of the contract to buy your home. They may even choose to not get their own inspection done if they see you have done it ahead of time.
BENEFITS OF GETTING A PRE- INSPECTION
- Provide a report that gives 100% full disclosure, with no worries if a buyer coming back and questioning anything regarding the property.
- The home may appeal more to buyers, knowing that a home inspection has been done.
- Avoid renegotiations due to a home buyer inspection.
- As the seller, you can choose to repair any items prior to listing their home or list the home “as is”.
