Calling All Sellers, It’s Home Inspection Time!
Many times a home inspection is thought of as something that takes place after an offer is made and accepted, and before the closing. Whether it is a buyer’s or seller’s market, many savvy homeowners are choosing to have pre-listed home inspections done BEFORE putting their homes on the market. After all, a home inspection benefits sellers, buyers, and agents and is designed to reveal any potential problems or concerns that might compromise a sale. With this in mind, some of the benefits of a pre-listed home inspection are as follows.
SELLERS’ HOME INSPECTION BENEFITS (3Ps):
- Positions the home to sell quickly and for the highest price possible.
Permits more time to make the necessary repairs and
compare bids on the repairs to be done.
Provides full disclosure to potential buyers.
BUYERS’ HOME INSPECTION BENEFITS (3Rs):
- Receives a third-party review of the home’s condition before making an offer.
Removes doubts regarding initial concerns.
Reduces the stress associated to purchasing a home.
As a result, moving the home inspection to the beginning of the sales process can shorten the process by removing impediments before they interfere with a potential sale. Either way, the importance of having a home inspection as part of the home sales process cannot be understated. Please remember, it is important that your inspector is a member of The American Association of Home Inspectors (AAHI) or meets your state’s requirements.
If you are thinking of selling or buying a home, it is important that your real estate agent is a member of the National Association of Realtors. I am here to serve you, so call me today at (301) 502-2669 or email me at email@example.com.
