Selling Your Home?
Pre-Listing Sellers Inspection
Why wait until a home inspector comes to your door for the buyer when you are the seller? Having an inspection performed ahead of time helps in many ways by getting there first:
1. You can choose a “Certified” Professional Home Inspector rather than be at the mercy of the buyer’s choice of inspector.
2. It allows you to see your home through the eyes of a critical third-party.
3. You can schedule the inspection at your convenience.
4. The report may help you substantiate a higher asking price if problems don’t exist or have been corrected.
5. There is no delay in obtaining the Use and Occupancy permit.
6. A sellers inspection reveals problems ahead of time which:
-May make the home show better.
-Gives you time to make repairs and shop for competitive contractors.
-Removes over-inflated buyer procured estimates from the negotiation table.
7. Your inspection and repair receipts can be used as a marketing tool.
8. Your inspection is the ultimate gesture in forthrightness.
9. The report might encourage the buyer to waive the inspection contingency.
10. It may relieve prospect's concerns and suspicions.
11. It reduces your liability by adding professional supporting documentation to your disclosure statement.
12. Alerting you to immediate safety issues before agents and visitors tour your home.
13. The deal is less likely to fall apart the way they often do when a buyer’s inspection unexpectedly reveals a problem, last minute.
