Ready to sell your home? Learn how you can reduce the chances of your home sale falling apart.
Have you considered getting a home inspection before you list your house on the market? If your answer is no, you may be missing out on the opportunity to get more money for your home. Not to mention making the sale of your home go as smooth and as quick as possible. Very few people realize the benefits of having a pre-listing home inspection.
1. You will Understand the Condition of Your Home
A home inspection will let you know the condition of your home giving you the opportunity to price your house accordingly. You may choose to make all the necessary fixes to get top dollar for your home or you may choose to forgo putting more money into your home by disclosing all of the issues upfront and selling your home at a lower price.
2. You Can Make the Repairs Needed
If the home inspector finds any major issues, you will have the time to get them fixed by a qualified professional without the pressure of a contract. When you are ready to list your property, you can have the confidence that you have corrected any major problems and are giving yourself the opportunity to get full price for your home.
3. Reduce Stress, Minimize the Chance of Negotiations and Close Quicker
Selling a home is stressful. Your stress will be reduced by not having to worry if the sale will go through when the buyer has an inspection conducted. Buyers tend to use the home inspection as a negotiating tool to get a reduced price or to get additional repairs done. Since you have already made the repairs or have disclosed any issues to the buyer beforehand it is less likely that the buyer will come back with demands that can delay or derail the sale.
