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 intrussion.
- 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.
- Copies of the inspection report along with receipts for any repairs should be made available to potential buyers.
