When planning to put your home on the market, please know a buyer, more times than not, will make the sale contingent upon a home inspection. As the seller, you may as well know what they’re going to find by getting your own home inspection. Getting an inspection done before putting the home on the market will help in many ways.
The pre-listing inspection is arranged and paid for by the seller, usually before putting the home on the market. In this case, the home inspector works for the seller and generates a report that informs the seller of any issues there might be with the home that another inspector might find once the home goes under contact. The seller will take the information and decide what they want to fix, and will have the time to get reasonable prices for repairs or fix them themselves, and what they won’t repair, they can plan to negotiate with the sale of the house. This inspection will inform the seller of issues there might be before allowing clients and agents to tour the house.
A pre-listing inspection can benefit all parties in a real estate transaction. The seller can fix or repair issues with-in their own time frame and not be rushed trying to get overpriced repairs done in time to close the home. The prospective buyer may be relieved to know the home was inspected and repairs made to the point where they may even waive their inspection contingency. This can be a win-win situation all the way around.
