Selling your home is a big deal! Opening your home to countless strangers in hopes of receiving an offer can be nerve-wracking. Coupled with the financial stress of moving and the exhausting chore of packing, it can be downright overwhelming. At United Property Inspectors, Inc., we recommend investing in a pre-listing inspection. Here are just a few of the benefits of a pre-listing inspection.
1. Peace of Mind
A quality home inspection can put you and potential buyers at ease. Our inspectors provide thorough, detailed inspections of all the major components in your home. We will make sure you don’t have to worry about any last minute surprises that could tank your deal.
2. Address Major Issues Now
While it might seem scary, finding out about a major issue before listing your home is actually a blessing. Being aware of the problem now gives you time to research and remedy the problem before your home ever hits the market. Taking your time to find the best contractors and solutions for the problem will save you money now and increase the overall value of your home.
3. Make Your Home More Marketable
Potential home buyers like proactive sellers. It is reassuring to buyers to see that you have taken initiative and kept up with necessary repairs and maintenance. Also, a pre-listing inspection will help you to more accurately price your home and potentially reduce its time on the market. Being transparent about the repairs you’ve performed and pricing your house accurately makes your home extra attractive to potential buyers.
4. Transfer Services Simplify the Process
Because we are committed to providing quality services to our customers, we offer transfer services to potential buyers. In order to save time and money, a buyer can choose to have us transfer the pre-listing report, do a walk-through to see what has been repaired since the original inspection, and then resubmit a new report directly to the buyer. This service simplifies and speeds up the selling process for both parties, making it a win for everyone.
