Eventually your buyers are going to conduct an inspection. It is benefical to know what they are going to find by getting there first.

A Pre-listing home inspection is an inspection that is requested by the seller prior to putting the house on the market. They are becoming increasingly popular, as they should be. Getting your home inspected before you put it on the market has many benefits, it can save you time and money, make transactions smoother and avoid unwanted surprises.

A Pre-listing home inspection will enable you to establish an accurate value for you home in its existing condition which will help sell your home quickly. When you have all the details about the homes defects it allows you to correct those issues before it goes on the market. If you choose not to fix the issues with the home it will also give you more bargaining power with the buyer because you will have extensive knowledge about the defects and not be blind sided by the Pre-Purchase Inspection. If an inspection is performed by the purchasers inspector and they uncover issues that you were not aware of or you do not know exactly how much it will cost to correct the issue, it can end up costing you significantly more money because the purchaser will typical quote higher than it might actually cost to fix and ask you to adjust your price accordingly. Being prepared for what the purchasers inspector will find and having reasonable quotes done before hand will keep the ball in your court and ultimately ensure you get the highest value for the sale of your home.
