Benefits of a Pre-Listing Inspection

FACT: Nearly 8 out of every 10 home buyers nationwide obtain a home inspection prior to closing, per ASHI (American Society of Home Inspectors) and NAR (National Association of Realtors) survey.

You can protect yourself, make your home look its best in a competitive market, and clear many of the roadblocks to a sale by having your home inspected before you place it on the market. Walking through a pre-inspected home gives prospective buyers more confidence in the condition of the property and leads to a greater willingingness to trust you, the seller. That means a closed deal and less stress for everyone.

The benefits of the Pre-Listing Inspection:

  1. Receive top-dollar for your home.
  2. Sell your home faster.
  3. Reduce the chance of price negotiations.
  4. Avoid closing delays.
  5. Reduce your liability through full disclosure.
  6. Provide proof to buyers of your home's condition.
  7. Reduce the chance of unpleasant surprises from the buyer's inspection.
