Pre-Listing Inspections


Eventually your buyers are going to conduct a Home inspection. You may as well know what they are going to find by getting there first. Having a Home inspection performed ahead of time helps in many other ways:

The seller can choose a certified Home inspector rather than be at the mercy of the buyer's choice of home inspector.
The seller can schedule the home inspection at the seller's convenience.
It might alert the seller of any items of immediate personal concern, such as radon gas or active termite infestation.
The seller can assist the home inspector during the inspection, something normally not done during a buyer's home inspection.
The seller can have the home inspector correct any misstatements in the home inspection report before it is generated.
The report can help the seller realistically price the home if problems exist.
The home inspection report can help the seller substantiate a higher asking price if problems don't exist or have been corrected.
A seller home inspection reveals problems ahead of time which:


might make the home show better.
gives the seller time to make repairs and shop for competitive contractors.
