You spend weeks getting your home ready for sale painting, cleaning and fixing. Your Realtor takes lots of great pictures, advertises your home and does open houses. You finally get an offer and you feel like the battle is over.
Then comes the home inspection and the report shows a deficiency, something wrong with your home that you knew nothing about.
Home inspections have the power to send all parties back to the negotiation table. As such, some sellers are taking the precautionary step of having an inspection done before listing the home for sale.
Having a home inspection prior to listing can offer several benefits to the seller. Having a home inspection betore you list puts you in control. It can identify any major problems that could potentially derail a sale sending you back to the negotiating table.
It will give you an opportunity to fix anything that needs attention and doing repairs ahead of time can save you money if you are able to do some of the minor repairs yourself.
Having a home inspection report available for potential buyers to view will give them piece of mind that the home is in great shape.
Talk to your Realtor about home inspections and as always if you have any questions please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
