For Home Sellers

It is a reliable assumption that your buyers are going to perform a home inspection prior to closing on the home. You may as well discover what they are going to see by getting there first.  Having an inspection done ahead of time assists in many other ways:

  • It allows you to view your home through the eyes of a critical third party.
  • It helps you to value your home accurately.
  • It permits you to make repairs ahead of time so that problems won’t become negotiating stumbling blocks down the road.
  • There is no postponement in obtaining the Use and Occupancy Permit.
  • You have the time to get modestly priced contractors or make the repairs yourself, if qualified.
  • It may persuade the buyer to waive the inspection contingency.
  • It may inform you to items of immediate concern, for example radon gas or an active termite infestation.
  • It may relieve prospects’ worries and fears.
  • It decreases your liability by adding professional supporting documentation to your disclosure statement.
  • It alerts you to immediate safety concerns before agents and visitors tour your home
