As a seller, you need to sell your home fast and easy. With no time to waste, you want to close on your home quickly, on your terms, and for top dollar. Like insurance, a pre-inspection can protect sellers and help lower the stress of selling your home.
According to the National Association of Realtors, 99% of Realtors encourage buyers to use a home inspection and 84% do. But less than 10% of sellers hire a home inspector according to Realtor.com. As a seller, you need a pre-inspection to protect your interest. Here are three solid reasons you need a pre-sale home inspection.
First, you can repair defects or safety issues before you list and market your home. If you know your problems and fix them before the sale, you can net more money.
Second, you’ll have a better bargaining position when the buyer’s inspection is complete. You can better negotiate requests because you’ll know exactly what you must fix from the buyer’s wish list.
Third, you can net more money, even if you sell your home “as is”. With a pre-sale home inspection, you can get an estimate of the cost of repairs to price your home. With your own estimate from a reputable contractor, you’ll negotiate the sale price more accurately. This will avoid over-estimates for repairs from the buyer that greatly reduces your sale price.
