As the seller, most people think that it is the buyer who has an inspection performed on a home. However, the seller can greatly benefit from a pre-listing inspection as it avoids issues that may arise down the road. If you are selling your home, consider getting a pre-listing home inspection with Donofrio & Associates, LLC.
How Does a Pre-Listing Inspection Work?
Normally, the pre-listing inspection is performed before the home is put on the market. This allows perspective buyers to see the condition of the home prior to negotiations being made. Donofrio & Associates, LLC. will provide a comprehensive inspection report and as the seller, you and your real estate agent can then review the report and may choose to adjust the listing price. You may also choose to make some repairs prior to listing your home.
If you plan on putting your house on the market, consider getting a professional pre-listing inspection and include this inspection report in your disclosure documents. It can help get ahead of buyer demand during escrow.
The Benefits of a Pre-Listing Inspection
A pre-listing inspection serves many benefits not only for the seller, but also for his/her agent. Sellers benefit from pre-listing inspections because it allows the seller to make repairs before listing the home. It ensures a smoother and more efficient transaction. Furthermore, it uncovers potential surprises which can impede on the sale of your home. If the home is found to be in better condition than originally thought, the sales price can be increased to reflect this.
