When Selling your Home a Pre-listing Inspection Makes Perfect Sense

A professional pre-listing inspection is a great service

You may be thinking it’s time to sell your home, or you may have already put your home on the market. Regardless of what stage you are at, there is one service that you need to consider to ensure your home can be sold for the price you want. Before you put your home on the market, you should seriously consider a pre-listing inspection.

As a homeowner, you don’t want to give any potential buyer the opportunity to present you with a detailed home inspection report that includes issues and/or problems concerning your property that you were unaware existed. The best way to get prepared before you put your home up for sale is to contact a home inspection company who can provide you with a professional pre-listing inspection.

The advantage to having a pre-listing inspection is that you will know what needs fixed prior to putting the home up for sale. You’ll learn what issues need attention because of your own inspection report. This means you have the opportunity to get what needs fixed and sorted. In addition to, no surprises coming from a buyer’s inspection report.

As a homeowner you need to be confident that your home will sell, for the price that you want. A pre-listing inspection helps you decide what are the most important items that are in need of repairs before trying to sell the property.

On the other hand, you may have to drop your original asking price, which allows the buyer to foot the cost of repairs.  A pre-listing inspection in any case is a win-win situation for a home seller.

If you would like to hear more about the advantages of a pre-listing inspection, please contact a professional home inspection company. Once you have contacted the home inspection company, ask what services are available, they can let you know what is the next step for your property.
