Why a Pre-Sale Home Inspection?A Pre-Sale Inspection is a proactive approach to selling your home. Eventually your buyers are going to have the home inspected by a professional home inspector. You might as well know what concerns they are going to find by finding them first. This is especially helpful when you need to sell fast, or when you are trying to maximize the selling price. Getting a home inspection is one of the smartest moves a seller can make.
* Allows you to see your home through the eyes of a critical third party
* It helps you to price the home more realistically, often allowing you to maximize the price
* It permits you to make repairs in advance, and allows you to shop around for contractors for best value
* Won't create negotiating road-blocks that delay your home's sale
* Buyer may even wave the inspection contingency
* May alert you to current safety concerns, that will affect your family, and potential injury to Realtors, and prospective buyers
* Reduces your liability by adding professional supporting documents to your disclosure statement
Copies of your professional report should be made available at the showing. Copies of repair receipts can be added as well as showing the noted repairs that were made.
It's up to you to fix these issues or not, but if you don't, you must disclose the information to all potential buyers. Even if you don't, it could still be less stressful for the buyers to know what the issues are up front, rather than being shocked further on in the process after their own inspection, which could potentially be a deal breaker.
