Earlier last year I wrote a blog about the Necessity of Having a Home Inspection. It has always seemed like a no-brainer to have one done when you’re buying a home. There are so many reasons to have one done but the obvious one is
You need to to know what’s wrong with the home before you purchase.
It’s purely for your protection. But what about turning the tables?
If you’re going to sell your home, should you get an inspection BEFORE you list it?
If you’re not trying to sell a home as a fixer-upper, then it may be a great idea!
Forbes magazine highlights 3 good reasons Why you Should Have Your Home Inspection Before You Sell
- It shows your home is an open book: having a pre-inspection shows buyers you’re serious about selling your property
- It can save you money in the long run: by knowing what the problems are before hand, sellers can fix them. Then when buyers see the house they know that the sellers are committed to not only selling their property but providing an honest transaction. Without having to renegotiate price and projects after the offer is signed, it can save you money.
- It can highlight your home’s assets: buyers will be able to see the great features of your home and things you fixed. Foundation cracks, moisture elimination, plumbing fixes.
There are a lot of good inspection companies out there and each one can perform various levels of service.
So, are you thinking of selling? Maybe you should consider an inspection and get serious!
