With a pre-sale inspection, you can avoid a lot of hassle down the road. Instead of having to negotiate when a buyer comes back with a list of repairs from their inspector, you can provide a list of your own up front.

The reason I chose this topic is because I’m finding time after time when I go to help buyers purchase a home there are no pre-inspections which is bad for the seller because we will be coming back to renegotiate after inspections are completed.
Without a pre-sale inspection, when the time does come for a buyer to inspect the home, they are going to come back with a list of repairs and we are going to have to end up re-negotiating the offer price midway through the contract, which is really not good for sellers.
With a pre-sale inspection, there is no second negotiation.
We get a property inspection, termite inspection, roof inspection, and sometimes even a sewer inspection for our homes before they go to market. That way, the seller is 100% sure on what repairs will need to be done and all those negotiations are done on the front end as opposed to midway through the contract. That’s crucial because it will give you a better idea of your net up front instead of halfway through the transaction. Pre-sale inspections are vital. That’s the most important thing to know.
If you have any more questions about pre-sale inspections, how they work, or anything else related to real estate, give me a call or send me an email. We look forward to hearing from you.
