Why should I pre-inspect?
Prior to putting your home on the market it is a recommended that you have your home pre-inspected to avoid any potential problems or delays in the sale of your home and to also save you time and money. The last thing you need when selling your home is to have negotiated a sale price with a buyer only to have an unexpected home inspection item that needs to be addressed prior to closing and costing you more out of pocket money.
Today’s home buyer’s will seek the services of a licensed home inspector to go through the home to insure that they know the quality of the home they are buying and to have those items that need repair taken care of prior to closing. Having a Pre-Listing Home Inspection performed will help solidify your contract and the buyers’ home inspector will confirm that they are buying a good, sound home.
Benefits of a PRE-LIST INSPECTION:
A pre-listing inspection from Inspectix puts the seller of a home in control of the inspection findings. You could just list your home and “hope” the buyers don’t do a home inspection, good luck with that, over 90% of all homes are inspected today.
Hiring a qualified home inspector allows you to know what the major issues are and address them on your own schedule, giving you options that can save you money. Having these issues addressed prior to listing your home also allows you to share this and the repairs with prospective buyers giving them confidence in your home. Even if they hire their own home inspector still, at least you’ve reduced or eliminated the unknowns, giving YOU peace of mind. Sure, a second home inspector may point out this or that, other minor items, but if the inspections are done relatively close together, their findings should be similar.
Many of the same things are checked on a pre-listing inspection that is done on a traditional home inspection. With the experience of owning and operating a handyman company has also allowed the owners of Inspectix to provide additional insight to these needs.
