Pre-List House Inspection - A Wise Investment

PRE-LISTING HOUSE INSPECTION

WELL & SEPTIC TESTING

Buyers and Sellers have evolved into savvy people thanks to the information available on the internet, which provides a lot of information with a click of a button.

When I first got into real estate back in 1987, house inspections were rarely performed, at least where I was living.  It was very rare to even see a lockbox on the property.  Back then I had to travel to each office prior to showing the properties to get each key for the houses I was showing.  After I showed the properties to my clients, I then had to return them to each individual brokerage office.  This made it very inconvenient and restricted other agents from showing the property, as they had to wait until the keys were returned.

I have noticed a shift now, where many savvy home owners are having a house inspection performed prior to listing their property.  This serves two functions.

  • The Seller can identify any deficiencies and correct them and
  • It helpsfacilitate a firm sale much faster when the inspection report is made available to the Buyer immediately, along with any receipts for any repairs that were completed that were identified in the inspection report.  
  • In the case of a multiple offer situation this could allow the Buyer to submit an offer without home inspection condition, if the report showed there were no major deficiencies, which makes it much more attractive to the Seller.

This also applies to Well Water Testing and Septic Inspections when dealing with country properties. Its not an expensive item, and having those documents available, just might make potential buyers move forward with submitting an offer, and remove any doubts they may have about the property.

I believe in inspections before putting home on the market. Then, seller can repair items for a smooth closing.

I agree Harry, not just for the closing but for offer presentation time.   It allows the Buyer to submit an offer with no home inspection condition if the report shows no major deficiences.
