Avoid the Surprise of a Buyer’s Inspection by getting a Pre-listing Inspection First


Home Inspection results

The buyer requested a home inspection and you just received the results. The outcome shows that there are quite a few repairs that need fixed. It can be easy to feel stressed immediately at this point, as humans stress is a natural thing feel after bad news.

On receiving bad home inspection results, it can be very easy to feel scared too. Do not panic! If you are the homeowner, looking to sell your home, then you have no real inclination as to how the findings might affect the buyer’s decision to go through with the sale. If the findings are bad, then yes, the buyer could easily back out of the sale. One option is for you to deal with repairs, and freshen up on your negotiating skills.

If you want to sell your home, and want to avoid being surprised by the results of a buyer home inspection, then it is better to invest in a pre-listing inspection before putting the house up for sale.

By getting a pre-listing inspection prior to selling, you are finding out the issues concerning your home. Knowing this vital information gives you enough time to decide to get repairs done, or possibly reduce the asking price.

This puts the responsibility of the repairs onto the person who wants to purchase the property. It also gives them an upfront idea of how much money they need to get repairs done.

In finishing, you can help prevent the breaking of bad news by getting a prelisting home inspection first. A completed inspection will give you all the details that you need to know on your property. What you don’t want is a buyer’s inspector presenting you with issues you never knew about your home.

If your home inspection brings some bad news, don’t worry. Take the time to research the options you have available to help you. Remember, if you’re prepared, then nothing can come as too much of a surprise.
