Why Have a “Pre-Listing Home Inspection” Completed?

A “Pre-Listing Inspection” is one of the many things that a seller can do to make their home not only sell faster, but to gain the trust of potential  buyers and their agents. Simply, it is the same as a regular home buyer’s inspection, only the seller has an inspection done on their own home before they list it for sale. Sellers often do this to get ahead of potential repairs and make their home more appealing.

The inspection is the same as any other home inspection, with the inspector taking the time to look at each component and system of the home to ensure that it is working properly and that there are no major problems.

While the buyer is typically the only one who has a home inspector look at the house during a real estate transaction, it is becoming more and more common for sellers to have an inspection as well.

It may seem like it is unnecessary to have a pre-listing inspection to some, however there are many reasons why it is recommended for sellers to do. Here are five reasons why homeowners are beginning to get pre-listing inspections.

  • TO UNDERSTAND THE CONDITION OF THEIR HOME
  • ABILITY TO DO REPAIRS IN ADVANCE
  • THE BUYER MAY ACCEPT THE RESULTS
  • ABILITY TO COMPARE RESULTS
  • GAIN CREDIBILITY AND TRUST

List With Confidence

Wouldn’t you like to be able to tell a potential buyer that you have had the house checked out by an independent inspection firm, provide them with a copy of the report and be able to make the whole process go more smoothly?

This gives you the ability to present any issues “as is” and indicate them in the purchase price. As the owner, you can also wait for the buyers inspection firm to find these items and again, causing possible delays and costing you more money.

Do It Your Way

One of the biggest benefits of having this type of home inspection done early-on in the process of selling your home, is that if there are any problems discovered that require repairs or replacement of these items, you can do them on your own terms, by your own repair personnel, and on your own schedule.

When a problem isn’t found until the buyer has their inspection performed, it can only cause a delay in the process. Doing things your way and at your pace is best.
