Prelisting Home Inspections
Eventually your buyers are going to conduct an inspection. You might as well know what they are going to find by getting there first!
Having an inspection performed ahead of time helps in many other ways.
- The seller can choose a certified home inspector rather than be at the mercy of the buyer’s choice of home inspector.
- The seller can schedule the inspections at the seller’s convenience.
- It might alert the seller of any items of immediate personal concern, such as a loose electrical ground or damaged chimney flashing.
- The seller can assist the home inspector during the inspection, something normally not done during a buyer’s inspection.
- The seller can have the home inspector correct any misstatements in the inspection report before it is generated.
- The home inspection report can help the seller realistically price the home if problems exist.
- The report can help the seller substantiate a higher asking price if problems don’t exist or have been corrected.
- A seller inspection reveals problems ahead of time which:
1. might make the home show better.
2. gives the seller time to make repairs and shop for competitive contractors.
3. permits the seller to attach repair estimates or paid invoices to the inspection report.
4. removes over-inflated buyer procured estimates from the negotiation table.
- The inspectors report might alert the seller to any immediate safety issues found, before agents and visitors tour the home.
- The home inspectors report provides a third-party, unbiased opinion to offer to potential home buyers
- A seller inspection permits a clean home inspection report to be used as a marketing tool.
- A seller inspection is the ultimate gesture in forthrightness on the part of the seller.
- The home inspectors report might relieve prospective buyer’s unfounded suspicions, before they walk away.
- A seller home inspection lightens negotiations and 11th-hour re-negotiations.
- The report might encourage the buyer to waive the inspection contingency.
- The deal is less likely to fall apart the way they often do when a buyer's home inspection unexpectedly reveals a problem, last minute.
- The home inspection report provides full-disclosure protection from future legal claims.
