What Are the Benefits of a Pre-Listing Inspection?

If you are planning to sell your home then you likely know that the buyer will schedule an inspection before they close the deal. But many sellers are now opting for a pre-listing inspection to be proactive before they ever list their house on the market. At Burgess Inspections, Inc., we perform in-depth and trustworthy home evaluations, no matter what point in the process you find yourself in. Here are some reasons to get a pre-listing inspection before you sell your home.

Pre-listing inspection

Get Ahead of Any Repairs That Need to Be Made

A pre-listing inspection allows you to get a head start on any repairs that will need to be made on your home. If you are made aware of issues before your home is even listed, then you will be able to repair them on your own timeline. The home inspection often slows down the home sale process while the seller is trying to work their way through the inspection repair checklist. Sometimes, buyers will even walk away from the sale at this point.

Boost the Confidence of Your Potential Buyers 

Buyers will naturally have more confidence in a home that has already been inspected, and it shows that you have nothing to hide. This will also help you gain trust with real estate agents, and will help them to do their job more efficiently. If the buyer is satisfied with the infection report then it’s possible they won’t choose to have their own inspection. The bottom line is that a pre-listing inspection will give you the edge over your competition.

Price Your Home More Accurately

When your home is inspected before it hits the market, there is no guesswork involved. After all, a realtor doesn’t know the exact condition of your home prior to the inspection, so he or she will typically base the price of your home on other homes in your market. A home that has already been inspected can be listed with a more accurate price.
