Today’s buyer is educated. Stay a step ahead and be pro-active with a pre-sale inspection.
Our professional inspector conducts a visual evaluation of the major mechanical and structural systems of the property, including exterior/interior, electrical, heating/cooling, plumbing and more.
Inspected components are checked for adequacy, condition, age/lifespan, maintenance, safety, and efficiency.
By having an inspection before you market your home, it allows you to “see the issues with your home” that the buyer will see. It may decrease the odds that you’ll have a failed transaction due to inspection-related issues.
Your home sale is less likely to fall through due to surprise problems found by the buyer’s home inspection. If a buyer discovers problems during their home inspection they are more likely to back out of the purchase. It is to your advantage to have a problem-free home inspection that will inspire a buyer’s confidence. If problems are discovered before your home goes on the market, you can correct them before a potential buyer steps foot in your home. Buyers often try to renegotiate the price after they receive their inspection reports. Their argument is that they weren’t aware of the problems when they made their offer. If you are aware of these issues up front, it puts you in a better bargaining position.
Our narrative and check-list report provides a clear picture of the status of the home as of the day of the inspection. Description, type and manufacturers are identified for mechanical items. Full color pictures also provide another selling feature in the report.
Depending on the condition of the home, the report ranges from 20–60 pages. The inspection is comprehensive in determining property condition, not property value.
There’s a lot of psychology involved in a home sale. Buyers often have mixed feelings of excitement and trepidation when they enter into an agreement to buy a home. The impact of an unexpected “bad” report can destroy their excitement and enhance their fear to the point that they question their decision to buy. Sellers who are aware of a problem up-front can process this information before a contract to purchase is received from a buyer. Generally, the most important thing in selling real estate is setting the appropriate price. This will be influenced by your location, the dedication and skill you or your agent possesses, the advertising you do, other real estate listings in the area, and the number of home buyers interested in that area. What many people fail to consider, however, is that, once a buyer comes on the scene, new factors take on primary importance. The actual physical condition of the house can, and will, deter a potential buyer at any time in the sale process - from the first visit to the final closing of the sale.
Is Your Home NotSelling?
Your home is staged just right, but has there been little interest in your home? One reason home-sale transactions fall apart is because of defects discovered during the buyer’s inspection. A home inspection is a tool to help you with full disclosure.
Using an inspector who has a good reputation, name recognition, longevity, experience and is insured will add credibility to your report, which can then be made available to buyers to review before they make an offer.
