A Pre-List inspection is commonly overlooked but it shouldn't be, and here is why......
- 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 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, Asbestos, or Mold
- It may relieve 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.
Typically a Home Inspection will be performed by the buyer, but you may as well know what is going come up by getting ahead and finding out first.
