Preparing to put your home on the market? You’ve probably got a lot on your mind. From finding a real estate agent to staging the rooms in an appealing way, the whole process can be overwhelming. At Bryan & Bryan Inspections, we understand how much work goes into listing a house in Houston. We also know that all of this work pays big dividends later. That’s why we recommend getting a pre-listing home inspection.

Benefits of Pre-Listing Home Inspections

Many people wait until the last minute to schedule a home inspection. It’s the last thing they do before finalizing the sale. However, there are several benefits to hiring a home inspector before listing a house:
  • Less stress: If your sewage system is failing or the air conditioner is on the fritz, it’s best to find out sooner rather than later. We’ll provide a detailed overview of the home’s condition so you won’t have to worry about a hidden problem derailing the sale while it’s under contract.
  • Greater confidence: Scheduling a pre-listing home inspection shows that you’re proactive, and that’s attractive to many buyers. Immediately learning about a house’s condition can also help the seller feel more confident in pursuing the purchase.
  • Faster sale: If a house inspection is the last thing you do before signing over the deed, you’re not leaving much time for negotiations of repairs. In fact, it increases the risk of a buyer backing out of the sale because of a major problem or defect.
