A PRE-INSPECTION....... IS IT WORTH YOUR MONEY?

By

Substantial supporting evidence has been established about the importance of having a pre-inspection performed on a home before it goes on the market.  Growing numbers of people are discovering that having their home pre-inspected is worth every dollar spent on a licensed home inspector.

Logically it makes sense.  Financially it makes sense. 

Think about it.

Pre-Inspected homes can resolve the difference of opinions about the home before it hits the market.  No one has to guess or speculate as to what the house consists of or contains within itself.  This immediately can reflect the self-worth of the home and be of a help in listing the home's price realistically.

The homeowner/seller of the property has time to correct any problems ahead of sale time so that repairs do not become a stumbling block during the selling process; therefore the prospective buyers would perceive NO delays in purchasing the home.  How many times over and over have deals failed to go through because of what a home inspection revealed?  Also, having the home inspected lessens the hassles of price negotiations.

Any safety concerns can be resolved at this time, before the potential buyers tour the home.

Lastly, potential buyers will be relieved of suspicions or concerns about the seller, which warrants an increased value to the home.  Having a trust worthy seller speaks for itself.  Knowing that all areas of concern have been revealed and corrected will result in a much smoother deal for the seller, the buyer, and the real estate agent.

Is this catching on where you're working?  I know in Idaho it's pre-sale but very rarely pre-lising.

I have studied up on Pre-Inspections and found out that more and more sellers are opting to have one performed before the home goes on the market. I am pushing pre-inspections because of the benefits to the real estate agent, the buyer, and the seller.  It is slow go, but hopefully with more supporting evidence it will catch on even quicker!

Pre-inspections are very smart and valuable...saving time by removing doubt. It would be nice if you could post some of this in Stage it Forward. See you there.
