A pre-listing inspection is typically performed before a house is listed on the market. This allows buyers to see the condition of the property so they can make price negotiations accordingly. When the seller is completely honest with the buyer about the overall condition of the home, uncertainty about negotiations or offers is eliminated.
3 reasons you should get a pre-listing inspection:
- Increase the Home’s Value — If there are damages that can be easily fixed to increase the overall value of the home, a pre-listing inspection will be able to determine this. Sometimes a pre-listing inspection will reveal that your home is in better overall condition than you thought. You could increase the total selling price, resulting in more profit made. Buyers are also less likely to negotiate with you if they feel your home is worth it’s listing price.
- Faster Selling Process — When a pre-listing inspection is performed, the buyer usually does not feel inclined to get a pre-purchase inspection. With peace of mind knowing the overall condition of the property, the buyer will be more likely to make an offer sooner, speeding up the selling process.
- Avoid Future Problems — Pre-listing inspections ensure that your property is in great condition, beyond what the buyer can see.
