Today lets talk about a Home Inspection before you put your home on the market.
Why would anyone want to do that you may ask? Isn't that just another couple hundred bucks out the window? Both great questions! There are a few main reasons why you should do this.
One of the biggest reasons is a counter offer based on defects of a home. If you didn't have a pr-inspection and you set your listing price your stuck with no where to go other than to lower the price for your home and or lose the buyer.
The bigger question is why did your realtor not insist on you having an inspection before hand? Kind of seems they may not of had Your best interest in mind, A troubling thought!
Why take less money for your home when it could have been avoided by a pr-inspection and the asking price adjusted accordingly, or at least a small allowance made for the repair work in advance. I get to see the day of responses on buyers faces everyday and the disappointment is very real.
It is my recommendation to leave a copy of the report on the counter for your potential
buyers that way they know you are not hiding anything and that you also know the defects of the home and have the listing price set. I can email a PDF copy of your report to any potential buyers before hand at your request. The buyers always call me for an explanation of defects if any. And that is the important part of the inspection.
Most counter offers are well above $10,000.00 so how did saving a couple of hundred help?
When defects are explained correctly most buyers understand that they are really just small maintenance items that all homes have.
