Pre-listing Inspections


Eventually your buyers are going to conduct an inspection.  You might as well know what they are going to find by getting there first.  Having an inspection performed ahead of time could definitely help in many ways:

  • It allows you to see your home through the eyes of a critical third-party
  • It helps you to price your home realistically
  • It permits you to make repairs ahead of time in order to insure defects don't become stumbling blocks
  • You have time to hire reasonably priced contractors or make repairs yourself (if qualified)
  • It might encourage the buyer to waive the inspection contingency
  • It might alert you of item of immediate personal concern, such as carbon monoxide, or gas leaks
  • It might  relieve prospects’ concerns and suspicions
  • It reduces your liability by adding professional supporting documentation to your disclosure statement
  • Alerts you to immediate safety issues before agents and visitors tour your home 

Copies of the inspection report along with receipts for any repairs should be made available to potential buyers
