|Making a HOME INSPECTION a SELLING tool!|
|A home inspection isn’t just for buyers!…It’s also something sellers should seriously consider before putting their house on the market! Why? Quite simply, you don’t know what you don’t know. Imagine getting a great offer on your home only to discover, during the middle of the process, that it needs considerable repairs.
This is the kind of surprises that can lead to buyers pulling out, costing you time and money on a number of fronts. It’s better to know problems from the start, and either deal with them before listing or price the home accordingly.
A seller’s inspection also provides a reference point from which to compare the findings of the buyer’s inspector. In particular, having a different professional opinion can work to your advantage in price negotiations.
Your Home Inspection is a Sales Tool
Having your home inspected before listing can also be an effective sales tool. You can confidently say that your home has been ‘pre-inspected’ and is in tip-top shape, making that much more attractive to buyers.
Don’t wait to long for a home inspection. You want plenty of notice for repairs before you start marketing your home for sale.
