Benefits of a pre-inspection home inspection

Are you planning on selling your home but aren’t sure if you should get your home inspected before the actual home inspection?

You’re not alone.

Although some homeowners (sellers) don’t like the idea of having to pay for a pre-inspection the reality is that a pre-inspection offers you many benefits, including the following:

Gives Your Time to Take Care of Problems Before Listing Your Home

Let’s face it, many home buyers these days are “pre-conditioned” to negotiate and if they find out that your home has one or more problems, they may be inclined to negotiate with you and offer a lower price for your home.

The good news is that when you have your home inspected before the actual inspection, you will be able to resolve potential problems and or issues with your home plus eliminate having to accept a lower price for your house because there’s work that needs to be done.

Pre-Inspection Justifies Your Asking Price

Did you know that a pre-inspection will also help you to “justify” your asking price? That’s right. You can list your home for X and justify your position, or asking price because you’ve taken the time to have your home inspected and you know that it’s worth your asking price.

A pre-inspection also gives you the “upper hand” during a hot real estate market because it may motivate a buyer to drop or reduce their inspection contingency.

Last, of all, a pre-inspection will also make the negotiation process easier because both seller and buyer know the real condition of the home and there won’t be any issue with problems that haven’t been revealed yet.
