How will a pre-listing home inspection save you money, sell your home faster and limit negotiations and unnecessary delays.
Home sellers will greatly benefit from pre-listing home inspections. Negotiations often take place around issues that are identified during the home inspection. The difference is in how informed you are as the Home Owner.
Being surprised can often cost you money that you were not expecting and can delay or kill a real estate transaction. We can limit the element of surprise by inspecting your home before this transaction begins. This will save you money by allowing you to address the issues in an honest manner. Buyers will often ask for things to be addressed that may go beyond the basic problem. This ends up costing sellers more than what they may had anticipated because they were not informed and did not address any of the problems before the buyers performed their inspection.
It is very understandable for a home buyer to ask for something to be addressed to the highest standard possible. Any reasonable buyer would want to make sure their concerns are completely addressed. This will cost you money if it is not addressed before the buyer’s home inspection is completed. Negotiating and navigating through this part of the transaction can be stressful. Our hope is to minimize this stress by maximizing your awareness and allowing you to either disclose or address the situation first. Performing this home inspection in advance will put you in the position of power to be proactive and not in the position being surprised by the demands you were not prepared to address.
Performing a Pre-Listing Inspection also sets your home apart from other homes that buyers maybe considering. I believe you set your home apart from others when a copy of your pre-home inspection is left on the kitchen counter top for all home buyers to see. You offer your buyer the peace of mind that you cared enough to take this extra step. They will receive a more comprehensive perspective of your home than the next home they will likely visit. The little things matter when buying or selling your home and this little step you take will make a big difference in your selling experience.
