Pre-listing Home Inspection Benefits:
One of the more valuable and powerful tools in a home seller’s belt is a pre-listing home inspection.
Typically, home inspections are paid for by the buyer and performed just before the sale of the home closes, but by performing an inspection beforehand, sellers are able to identify shortcomings in their home and better prepare themselves for a sale.
On the other hand, if everything checks out after a pre-listing home inspection, sellers are able to substantially shorten the length of time a home is on the market.
Expert Industry Advice
Pre-Listing Inspections Save Time
Agents and home sellers are given the opportunity to make improvements to the home before putting it on the market, preventing future surprises from complicating a potential deal later down the road.
Pre-Listing Inspections Provide Options
Sellers are given the opportunity to choose the inspector and help them with details of any maintenance, improvements, and context of the home’s current condition. Furthermore, ordering an inspection before the home goes on the market allows for flexibility in the date of the listing, shortening a home’s time on the market and preparing it for a potentially higher sale price.
Pre-Listing Inspections Give Insight
A pre-listing home inspection can give a seller a better idea of what their home is worth before putting it on the market. This will help agents set a seller’s expectations accordingly and allows them to either make repairs to the home or submit a higher asking price if conditions allow.
