Although it is common practice for home buyers to get an inspection of the home that they are
planning to purchase, there are also many advantages for the home Sellers to have their home
inspected before putting it on the market. This is especially true in this current "challenging"
market for home sellers. Particularly at this time, anything that a home seller can do to set
themselves apart from other sellers is important and can reap real benefits. It can pay off in having
your home on the market for less time, as well as getting the price that you want.
The biggest mistake that most Home Sellers make is waiting for the Buyer's Home Inspection to
assess the condition of their home. One of the main reasons that home purchase transactions fall
apart is due to defects and/or issues that are discovered during the course of the buyer's home
inspection. Why wait until the last minute to see what issues may come up in a buyer's
inspection that may become stumbling blocks just before going to settlement. Why not become
proactive, and allow Reassurance Home Inspection to assist you in discovering and
understanding the true condition of your home in advance, and thus help you turn your home into
a buyer friendly home.
Pre-Listing/Pre-Selling Home Inspections
Eventually your buyer is going to conduct an inspection of your home. You may as well know
what they are going to find first, by conducting your own pre-listing/pre-selling inspection.
Conducting your own pre-listing inspection ahead of time helps in many ways:
* It allows you to schedule the inspection at your convenience.
* It allows you to see your home through the experienced eyes of a critical, unbiased third party.
* It alerts you to any immediate safety issue before agents and visitors tour your home, as well
as for your own safety.
* It permits you to make any necessary or desired repairs ahead of time, and at your pace, so
that defects won't become negotiating stumbling blocks later, at the last minute.
* It gives you the time to get your own, reasonably priced contractors, or make any repairs
yourself, if qualified.
* It may help the home to show better, after you have completed any repairs or upgrades.
* It helps you to price your home realistically, based on a true understanding of the condition of
your home, and after repairs are made, may help substantiate a higher price.
* It is the ultimate gesture of openness and forthrightness on your part, and may help to relieve
prospective buyers concerns and suspicions.
* It reduces your liability by adding professional supporting documentation to your disclosure
* It helps lighten negotiations and 11th-hour re-negotiations, so the deal is less likely to fall apart
at the last minute, the way they sometimes do when a buyer's inspection unexpectedly reveals a
All in all, it should make it easier and quicker to sell your home, and perhaps even get a better
price for it. This certainly should make you happy! The buyer should be happy, as well, if the
purchase can proceed to closing without a lot of complications. It's a win-win situation for
