Eventually your buyers are going to conduct a home inspection. You may as well know what they are going to find by getting there first. Having a Pre Owned Listing inspection performed ahead of time helps in many other ways:
- It allows you to see your home through the eyes of a critical third-party.
- It helps you to price your home realistically.
- It permits you to make repairs ahead of time so that…
- Defects won’t become negotiating stumbling blocks later.
- You have the time to get reasonably priced contractors or make the repairs yourself, if you are qualified.
- It may encourage the buyer to waive the inspection contingency.
- It may alert you of items of immediate personal concern, such as radon gas or active termite infestation.
- It may relieve buying prospect’s concerns and suspicions.
- It reduces your liability by adding professional supporting documentation to your disclosure statement.
- Alerting you to immediate safety issues before agents and visitors tour your home.
- Allows your home to stand out from the rest via signs in the front yard and our website which is included in the inspection price.
- You will receive a 90 day Home Warranty included in the inspection price.
Copies of the inspection report along with receipts for any repairs will be made available to potential buyers via our web site. Also a copy of the report and numerous copies of the summery will be left in the home for potential buyers to read when viewing your home.
You can also benefit from simply offering certain items as is. Often, you can negotiate with a buyer to accept items in the current condition by stipulating that they are reflected in the purchase price. But that same buyer may walk away from the deal if the conditions come as a surprise, after an offer has already been made. If the home is inspected before the house goes on the market you will be aware of the condition of the house before an offer is made. There won’t be any surprises and the deal is far less likely to fall apart. It takes a lot of effort to get a sales agreement signed in the first place. If the inspection turns up problems, the buyer will want to negotiate a new deal and that second sales agreement is usually even harder to get done than the first one and could cost hundreds if not thousands of $.
By having a pre owed certified inspection done, you can identify problems early. Then either correct them or present them as is, assuring that the first offer you accept can move quickly and smoothly to closing without delays or costly surprises or the buyer getting cold feet.
