A Home Seller/Pre-Listing Home Inspection can help expedite your home's sale and yield a greater sale price.

If you are ready to sell your home and want to ensure the sale process will go smoothly and quickly, you may want to consider a pre-listing home inspection. A pre-listing inspection provides information as to the pre-sale condition of the property and could uncover any concerns that might compromise a sale.

Moving the inspection to the beginning of the sales cycle allows sellers to shorten the selling process by removing obstacles before they can interfere with a potential sale. Home seller inspections are gaining in popularity and are gaining in popularity.

Six benefits to a pre-listing home inspection:

  1. Time. Selling agents can use the pre-inspection report to help the seller decide what areas to work on to improve the home’s appeal in plenty of time before it lists.
  2. Options. Sellers can choose who they want to perform the inspection and assist in providing details of equipment maintenance, supply dates of improvements and explanations for current conditions.
  3. Flexibility. Sellers have more flexibility on making repairs and comparing bids on work to be done and can provide full disclosure to their potential buyers.
  4. Accurate pricing. A pre-listing home inspection helps the agent and seller coordinate their price expectations and can be used to gain a higher asking price.
  5. No surprises. Agents will have fewer issues to negotiate at the 11th hour.
  6. Stress relief. The inspection can remove doubt in the buyer regarding initial concerns reducing stress associated with purchasing a home.

Pre-listing inspections may eventually become the more common home inspection, but the importance of having a home inspection as part of the home sales process cannot be understated. It protects all parties involved by providing invaluable information so that educated decisions can be made.
