Even when the economy slows down, people still have to move for various reasons. Homeowners must sell homes and buy new ones as they navigate through life’s transitions and job changes, no matter what financial market our country faces at any given time. If you find yourself in a position where you must sell your house, then let Evolve Property Inspections help you get as much as you can from the real estate transaction. Let’s talk about how one of our pre-listing inspections can help you get top dollar for the sale of your home.
How a Pre-Listing Inspection Can Help a Seller
Wise sellers must do their homework prior to listing their home for sale, and one of the most important items you can have on that list is the pre-purchase inspection. This inspection will help you to identify and address any defects in your home before they are ever known to potential buyers. With a pre-listing inspection, you are able to be proactive and take control of your home’s preparedness for the housing market, rather than be left hoping the buyer’s inspection report won’t scare them away from the deal or give them leverage to negotiate a lower price.
How a Pre-Listing Inspection Can Benefit a Home Sale
The person with the most power in a real estate transaction is the one who gets the home inspection first. You don’t want to find yourself at the mercy of a buyer’s home inspection report and their costly repair estimates. You could end up being pressured to agree to all of their repair demands at an exorbitant cost to you, or you could be forced to negotiate a lower sale price just to secure the contract. It would be in your best interest to schedule a seller’s home inspection before ever listing your house so that you can choose what repairs to make and when to make them.
What is Included in a Pre-Listing Inspection?
The Certified Master Inspectors at Evolve Property Inspections understand the importance of a pre-listing inspection for sellers. We will assess the same things we do in many of our other home inspections. In the interior of the home, we will assess the HVAC system, plumbing system, electrical system, roof, attic, visible insulation, walls, ceilings, floors, windows, doors, foundation, structural components, and functional appliances. On the exterior of the home, we will assess the driveway, walkway, windows, doors, paint, siding, fascia boards, vegetation, grading, stairs and hand railings, gutters, decks, balconies, visible foundation issues, and framing.
