Importance of Inspections for Home Buyers
Buying a home is a big investment, and you should know exactly what to expect before you purchase. A home inspection will give you a clear picture of urgent issues that need to be addressed, as well as future repairs and maintenance that you should keep in mind. Ask your real-estate agent about including a clause in your offer to purchase that ensures it is contingent upon the findings of a certified home inspector. Red flags in a report need not put an end to the negotiations, but you may decide to amend your offer based on the results.
The Benefits of Pre-Listing Inspections for Sellers
If you are about to put your home on the market, an inspection will alert you to any major problems that might delay the sale so that you can address those problems before listing your property. In a competitive market, pre-listing assessments are confirmed to help sell properties more quickly and at better prices because they:
- Give you the opportunity to make repairs, get estimates, or hire a contractor prior to listing.
- Show buyers you are being proactive and providing full disclosure accompanied by professional reports.
- Allow you to price your home accurately, potentially reducing time on the market.
- Give you the opportunity to showcase all of the positive points of the property.
- Prevent unpleasant surprises, delays, or a lost sale when the potential buyer schedules an assessment.
- Help you avoid negotiating your equity in the property at the 11th hour.
Ask us about our convenient transfer service. 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.
