Should you do a pre-listing inspection?
Today, I’d like to talk about the importance of home inspections. Home inspections can be mutually beneficial to both buyers and sellers. However, a common trend that we’re seeing is when a seller will actually get a home inspection prior to listing a home.
From the seller’s standpoint, a pre-listing inspection can be very valuable. That way, you know about the issues with the property and you can get a lot of them taken care of up front. A buyer might misinterpret some minor issues as major issues, and having that pre-listing inspection can save you a lot of money.
Buyers enjoy the fact that a seller was being proactive and got an inspection before listing their home. This gives them peace of mind, and that’s a nice thing to have in a real estate transaction. This is also a great way for a seller to stand out in a crowded market.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call or send an email. We look forward to hearing from you!
