Why Home Sellers Need a Home Inspection

Home Seller Pre-Listing Inspections

A home inspection prior to listing your home may result In getting top dollar for your home.

One of the main reasons a home sale transaction can fall apart, is the inspection. This happens when something unanticipated is discovered during the buyers’ inspections of the property, and the buyers and sellers can’t agree on a remedy. Why wait for the buyer’s inspector to find unknown defects (issues), hire your own inspector first. With the obtained knowledge you will be in the drivers seat. Simply disclose the deficiencies upfront, therefore eliminating stressful last minute negotiations.

A home seller’s report is not meant to replace buyer’s inspections. It’s to uncover defects in advance so that the buyer’s inspections don’t become deal-breakers.

Eventually your buyers are going to conduct an inspection. You may as well know what they are going to find by getting there first.
