Buying a new home is probably the biggest investment you'll ever make. There is always considerable risk involved when making such a large purchase decision. A professional inspection can significantly reduce your risk and help make the entire home buying process easier and less stressful. The inspector will point out areas that need attention and explain them to you. We will also explain what routine maintenance is needed to keep the house in top condition. You'll get a comprehensive report the same day that is easy to understand. Everything identified during the inspection will be included in the report. Armed with the information our report will provide, you can make your home buying decision with added confidence. Click here to learn more about our Home Buyer Inspections > > >
Are you thinking of selling your home? A Pre-Listing Home Inspection can save you money, time, and a whole lot of stress during the process. Here are three reasons why a Pre-Listing Home Inspection is a good idea.
1. It shows your home is ‘an open book’
A pre-inspection is a goodwill gesture. It demonstrates a willingness to go beyond what’s expected, and that sets you apart from other sellers. You’re sending a signal that your house is an "open book," and that you’re being upfront about the property. All of this can give potential buyers peace of mind and confidence.
2. It can save you money in the long run
A pre-inspection gives you, the seller, a heads-up if there are problems that a potential buyer will likely want repaired. Once you know what’s wrong, you can have those issues fixed before you list. The cleaner and more problem-free you can make your home, the faster it’s likely to sell. Because a pre-inspection lets buyers know what they're getting from the beginning, they can factor any needed repairs into an offer. And by disclosing all known issues upfront, you're protecting yourself against claims the buyer might make later — which sometimes result in lawsuits.
On the other hand, let’s say you don’t have a pre-inspection. During escrow, the buyer’s inspector discovers problems you didn’t know about. You can be sure the buyer will try to negotiate a lower price, which will cost you money and can delay the sale. The buyer might even cancel the contract.
3. It can highlight your home’s assets
Assuming you’re not trying to sell a fixer-upper, a pre-inspection can shine a spotlight on your home’s selling points, such as any recent upgrades you might have had made. Click Here to learn more about our Pre-Listing Inspections >>>
