Should I Get a Pre-Listing Home Inspection?

In most cases, home buyers hire a home inspector to help them have a clear understanding of the property they are about to buy. However, many sellers find that it is helpful to have an outside expert point of view to possible issues that may arise and delay or cancel the sale of their home.

Benefits of a Pre-listing Home Inspection

Knowing ahead of time any conditions on the property that may cause Buyers to walk away can alleviate stress and save a home Seller money in the long run.  Below are a few of the benefits of a pre-listing home inspection:

1. Reduce the stress of selling

Getting a pre-listing inspection can reduce the stress surrounding selling your property. In case there is a hidden problem, an inspection will alert you and give you the opportunity to address it without rushing and making expenses fixes.

2. Making unnecessary repairs

Many homes or property owners make repairs to their home that were not necessary. You may think something needs to be done, like new wiring, but an inspector may find that it is within the code and in good condition. A good home inspector can give you ideas on what actually needs to be done and what is safe to leave alone. This will give you peace of mind if anything arises out of the buyers home inspection. It instills you with confidence that there will be no surprises.

3. Getting the best price for your property

Knowing that your property is in great condition or knowing something needs to be replaced or repaired can help with pricing and negotiations of your home or property. You can get quotes ahead of time so that you know how much wiggle room you have.
