Pre-Sale Inspection

If you want to make sure the sale of your home is as painless and quick as can be, then a Pre-Sale Home Inspection is right for you. Much like a Pre-Purchase Home inspection, a Pre-Sale Home Inspection covers the same checklist, but its seller initiated before the home is even listed for sale. This really helps the process go smoothly because the seller will be able to make sure there is nothing wrong or have the chance to repair any issues found. Then when it comes time for the buyers to have the home inspected themselves, you’ll know exactly what their home inspection report will contain. Being prepared and knowing that buyers inspection report looks great gives you a reassurance and makes the whole experience much easier.

There are many reasons a seller would want to obtain a Pre-Sale Inspection. A lot of times homeowners are unaware of the value or any issues with their home. It helps to get a professional, non-biased third party’s opinion about the condition of your home. Many times, there are safety concerns that need to be addressed before letting realtors show your home to potential buyers. Getting a Pre-Sale inspection from a licensed home inspector almost always reduces or eliminates any fears or suspicions for most interested buyers. One of the biggest reasons to have your home inspected before listing it for sale is to completely eliminate the use of repairs as a bargaining and negotiating tool that potential buyers can use against you. If you already know about all the issues of your home and have addressed them properly, then there is nothing to worry about. It also gives you time to either make any needed repairs on your own or it lets you take your time to shop around and get the best possible pricing. It also helps you price your home accordingly. And lets you decide what you want to fix or disclose what you do not. Making this a very trustworthy, transparent transaction for both you and your buyer.
