Something you may want to consider is a pre-listing inspection.
A Pre-Inspection before listing your home for sale would put an additional cost on the seller or listing agent, but offers a beneficial piece in the Selling process. It provides you with a written report of the property condition which could uncover any concern or problem areas that could compromise a sale. Having your Inspection Report available for Buyers to examine when viewing the home, offers an assurance to the Buyer that you are confidant in the condition of the home.
An inspector can determine the conditions of several aspects of the home which would otherwise be found by the Buyer’s Home Inspector and delay the selling process or provide just cause for a reduction in the selling price. Inspectors will examine the condition of areas such as: Foundation & Structure, Roof & Attic, Interior & Exterior, Plumbing, Electrical and insulation.
It is important for you to attend the home inspection so you can see issues firsthand and received advice on corrections that should be made before listing your home for sale. The Home Inspector should supply you with a detailed report of the condition of the home, inside and out. Repairs can be made before you list your property so you can have a smooth transaction when selling your home.
