Top Reasons why Sellers should Inspect their home before they list

Here are the 7 Top Reasons why Sellers should Inspect their home before they list:

  1. You now know the issues with your home and can make repairs before you list your home.
  2. There is transparency in the sale of your home with your buyer.
  3. You can more accurately fill out the property condition report which must accompany any offer.
  4. You maintain a level of control over the inspection process. A rouge inspector’s report will have less impact if you can provide a pre-listing inspection report to refute any possible new item the buyer’s inspector brings up as a possible defect.
  5. It can reduce liability. If the home is fully inspected and there is a problem after the sale, the likelihood of being pursued for damages may be substantially reduced.
  6. Defects become less of a stumbling block in your negotiations with your buyer, because your report is now part of the acknowledged documents provided to the buyer prior to the buyer writing an offer.
  7. Peace of mind with fewer surprises reduces stress during the process of selling your home.
