Most homebuyers, especially first-time homebuyers, are going to take a number of precautions before committing to a real estate purchase. Whether they’re making an offer on a used mobile home or an on-site built property, and a pre-sale inspection can help indicate the success of your home, since you’re on the other side. A pre-listing inspection will give you the best perspective of your home through a critical and neutral third party lens. Knowing what others may see or may be looking for ahead of time can give you the proper preparation when moving forward in a real estate transaction. Here are some of the benefits of a seller’s home inspection:
- Alerts you to immediate safety issues or concerns prior to showings
- Permits you the time to perform repairs following a pre-listing inspection
- Helps expedite the obtainment of the Use and Occupancy Permit
- Offers realistic price qualifications
- Often times knowledge of a conducted pre-sale inspection relieves prospects’ concerns and/or suspicions
- Helps reduce your liability by adding professional supporting documentation of a seller’s home inspection to your disclosure statement.
