Are you selling your home?
Prepare with a Prelisting Inspection.
Eventually your buyers are going to conduct an inspection. You may as well learn what their inspector may find first. A prelisting inspection helps you as a seller in a number of ways:
Choose Your Own Inspector: You get to choose who first inspects your house. Your buyer may still want to schedule their own inspection but you will have the peace of mind that a second inspector isn’t likely to find any “surprises.”
Know Your House Before Marketing It: Learn about any issues that may arise in an inspection at a time that’s convenient for you, and with time to address any potential snags before listing or putting your house under contract with a buyer.
Be a Part of the Inspection Process: During a prelisting inspection, you can choose to be present and walk through the inspection, asking us questions and seeking feedback; this typically isn’t possible during a buyer’s inspection.
Set a Market-Appropriate Price for your House: The inspection report can help you set an appropriate price for your house–perhaps reducing the price if problems exist that you want a buyer to address, or even setting a higher asking price if problems don’t exist or you’ve had them corrected. If you’ve paid a contractor to do recent repairs, share those invoices to show to serious buyers that you have worked hard to well maintain your home.
A prelisting inspection report can even be given to interested buyers to help them learn more about your house. In some cases, having a prelisting report may even encourage buyers to waive an inspection contingency.
Address Safety Issues: A prelisting inspection may help you identify safety issues before Realtors and potential buyers tour your home, such as a missing pool fence, or inadequate locks or loose hand railings.
List your home with confidence through a PreLisiting home inspection.
Be confident that you’re meeting your needs as a seller,
as well as the assurance needs of your future buyer.
