Pre-inspections, why to consider having one:
o Seller pre-inspections mean fewer surprises: Some sellers choose to hire their own inspector to look over the property, identify any problems, and fix them before the buyer’s inspector arrives on the scene. Regardless of who’s doing the hiring, a certified home inspector evaluates approximately 1,600 items that make-up the property’s structure, foundation, plumbing, electrical, and HVAC systems. The purpose is to uncover hidden and potentially costly problems that could affect the value of your home.
o Indicates honesty: Pre-inspections send a pretty clear message that you’re not trying to hide anything. It may even make a buyer feel more confident and likely to go ahead and submit an offer. No matter if a potential buyer decides to pay for another independent inspection, being proactive conveys that you care for your home and have probably done a good job maintaining it. This is especially useful if selling your home yourself. Showing the buyer that you go above and beyond is never a bad thing.
o A great negotiating strategy: Having an in-depth inspection of your home keeps you from being taken by surprise by a major problem in a future buyer’s independent inspection. It enables you to know better when to stand firm on price and when it might be a good idea to give a little. A good example is if you know the roof will need replacing in the next few years but you choose not to replace it at this time, then you might want to consider giving a bit on price. Knowing this information affects your bottom line and Knowledge is power!
