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.
