Before putting your home on the market consider having your home inspected by a qualified Home Inspector.

When a buyer makes an offer on a house, the offer will most likely be conditional on satisfactory home inspection. This means that if there are any issues that the buyer is unwilling to accept, he can demand that the seller will either make necessary repairs or reduce the sale price or the buyer can walk away from the deal.  Many times, neither of the party knows how much it may cost to make repairs and further negotiations are futile. Even if the agreement is reached it will take additional time and a lot of aggravation.

There is a far better way: Deal with issues before they become problems.

By having home inspected before it is listed you can avoid surprises and make the home more attractive to buyers by attending to necessary repairs. Consider these advantages:

  • Inspections can be scheduled to your convenience.

  • Sellers can assist inspectors during the inspections, something normally not done during buyers inspections.

  • Report will help you see your home through the eyes of a critical, third party.

  • Issues can be identified and corrected before first buyers set foot in the home therefore increasing your chances of quick sale.

  • Taking care of repairs will show the buyer that you care and make your home more attractive.

  • The report will show, third party, unbiased opinions.

  • Well prepared Inspection Report may relieve prospective buyers unfounded suspicions, before they walk away.

Even though the buyer may still ask for an inspection it is unlikely that any new issues will be discovered in the process and in some cases they may waive the condition altogether.

You can think about it this way: Would you want to buy a used car that hasn’t been inspected by a mechanic?
