South Florida experiences more days with significant precipitation than any other state in the country. Coupled with the hotter temperatures and higher humidity and mold becomes a problem for south Florida real estate.
Purchasing a home is the largest investment one will ever make. A home that is damaged by water intrusion or mold can pose significant health risks to residents, including allergies and asthma. In addition, the presence of mold, seen and unseen, can greatly diminish the value of a home.
Our pre-sale mold inspection for Realtors will provide a comprehensive inspection of the home and make recommendations to correct issues before listing the home. A home with a clean mold inspection report will ensure a quicker sale at a higher selling price. In addition, a mold inspection is an essential part of the pre-closing walk-through.
Are you selling a home?
A pre-listing inspection is actually two inspections.
The first inspection is to determine the condition of the home and to identify needed repairs.
The second inspection is performed after you have completed the recommended repairs you choose to do. A new and revised report is issued after the second inspection. The revised inspection can be a great sales tool.
This Pre-Inspection will provide you with a better understanding of the conditions which may be discovered by a prospective buyer’s inspector and provides you an opportunity to make repairs and improvements that will help the sale go smoothly and maximize their selling price.
Eventually, your buyers are going to conduct an inspection. You may as well know what they are going to find by getting there first.
Having an inspection performed ahead of time helps in many other ways:
- It allows you to see your home through the eyes of a critical third-party.
- You fix any problems you like or recognize the problem and reflect it in the purchase price – take it off the table as a negotiating point against you.
- No helpless feelings that an inspector has raised an issue that is not a big problem.
- It permits you to make repairs ahead of time so that … Defects won’t become negotiating stumbling blocks later.
- You have the time to get reasonably priced contractors or make the repairs yourself, if qualified.
- It may encourage the buyer to waive the inspection contingency.
- It may alert you of items of immediate personal concern, such as active water intrusion.
- It may relieve prospect’s concerns and suspicions.
- It reduces your liability by adding professional supporting documentation to your disclosure statement.
- Alerts you to immediate safety issues before agents and visitors tour your home.
