Seller’s Home Inspection
Avoid renegotiations, delays and lost sales!
One of the most frustrating aspects of selling a house is when a problem turns up on the physical inspection. Depending on the severity of the problem it can lead to a new round of negotiations, delay your escrow, or even ruin your sale. List your house knowing that there won’t be any surprises. And if you are buying another house on contingency, having your house pre-inspected gives you more negotiating power. The seller of the house you want to buy will feel better knowing your house will have a clean inspection, and shouldn’t delay your purchase.
Regardless of how a home looks on the outside, there may be underlying issues that need to be identified. Let us look at your house through a buyer’s eyes. A home inspection can protect the seller. Problems may develop over time that go unnoticed by even the most meticulous homeowner. Unfortunately these issues can lead to delays, unhappy buyers or even lawsuits after the sale.
Eventually your buyers are going to conduct an inspection. You may as well know what they are going to find by getting there first.
You don’t want a written report?
Some sellers feel funny about having a written report that would have to be disclosed to the buyer. We offer a verbal-only walk through inspection that you should consider. This is a more basic inspection, but can identify significant problems that could derail your sale. No report will be produced. Remember that it’s not always the severity of a problem, but the number of problems that can cause a buyer to walk away. Our verbal-only inspection may be the perfect solution to help you prepare for selling your home.
