Why Should You Get a Pre-Listing Inspection?
May 29, 2018 | Kelly Fischer
course We all know that the majority of people who buy homes get a professional home inspection in order to check the house for damages or important defects. However, today I want to suggest an alternative that's a little less common.
One thing that I recommend to my sellers is to get a pre-listing inspection performed before ever going under contract.
There are a couple of reasons why doing this is beneficial. For one, I think it’s always good to enter into a situation with as much knowledge and information as possible. In this case, you spend maybe $350 to $400 on an inspection to find out exactly
what a buyer’s inspector would find.
The inspector’s job is to determine whether a home is structurally sound and whether every system in the home works properly. So, why not order a pre-listing inspection and uncover any problems beforehand so that you can address them proactively?
Ordering your own inspection ahead of time can allow you to resolve issues on your own terms.
Bbelieve me: It’s very likely that the inspector will uncover an issue. In my 25 years in real estate, I’ve only encountered two properties that came out of an inspection problem-free.
Having a pre-listing inspection allows you to put your best foot forward as a seller. It also helps you avoid surprises.
Finally, a pre-listing inspection could help you save a lot of money.
When buyers order an inspection and discover a problem, most will ask for way more than what it would cost to fix an issue. Ordering your own inspection ahead of time can allow you to resolve issues on your own terms.
So if you’re thinking of selling, don’t delay. It’s hard to say for sure, but the Vero market is likely near
or at its peak. When you do decide to list, feel free to reach out to my team and I. We would be happy to provide you with a list of reputable inspectors.
