Pre-Listing Inspections & Why They're Important

Updated: 6 days ago

Preparing your home for the market, choosing an agent, setting the asking price, and negotiating the offer can be stressful. Going through this lengthy process and having it fail at the last moment can be very disappointing.

That's where Inspec-Pro Home Inspection comes in, we provide pre-listing home inspections. A pre-listing home inspection provides you with the opportunity to control some of the uncertainties during the sale of your home. Buyers’ questions about the condition of your home are answered before viewing. The results are better offers, smoother negotiations, and less stress to you, the seller.

As a valuable marketing tool

A good home inspection can be used to market your home and support your listing price. Advertising that a “home inspection has been done…no surprises!” makes your listing stand out. If significant defects are found during your home inspection, you have the opportunity to make choices that will maximize the marketing potential and sale of your home. You can then discuss any problems with your realtor to determine if you want to list your property “As is” with full disclosure, or correct selected defects to expedite the sale. After the chosen repair work is completed, you can call for a re-inspection and get a revised report for marketing purposes.

Results in a smoother closing

The buyers’ home inspection, if they choose to have one done, will not find anything to alarm them. You will not have to deal with inflated repair estimates and the resulting negotiations that could cost you money or blow the deal. This will improve the chance of a smooth closing and can lead to a quicker sale.

What is a Pre-Listing Home Inspection?

Having your home inspected before you sell can have many financial advantages and streamline the process. It allows you to make any necessary repairs or maintenance so you can sell your home with confidence knowing you have done your part as an honest homeowner.

This service is the same as a pre-purchase inspection and will include a thorough visual investigation of the home's readily accessible features, major systems and their components such as structure, foundation, roof, interior, exterior, heating, and ventilation system, electrical, plumbing and more.

A summary presentation with the aid of digital images will be conducted after the conclusion of the inspection. An electronic report including digital images will be provided within 24hrs to 48hrs of inspection.

Here at Inspec-Pro Home Inspection, we will provide you with peace of mind before you sell your property.
