Would the Real Estate Community support "Pre Lisiing" inspections?

By
Home Inspector with CertaSpect Home Inspections & Consultations

As we begin to see a trickle of activity returning (and getting past election day) are RE Pros interested in a "Discounted Pre-Lisitng or Sellers Inspection" campaign???

Many HI's certainly have the time on their hands and rathere than sitting on said hands would rather use them to help our agents.  

Benefits:

  • Exisithg seller gets a boost of encouragement to heare from the agent
  • Agent has something to talk about
  • HI's have something to bring to the table

Jim, welcome to ActiveRain! Pre-listing home inspections are a good way for sellers to see if there are any issues. It's better to resolve any problems early before the buyer uses they to negotiate the price down.
