By getting a pre-listing home inspection, you can improve the odds of selling your house and closing the real estate deal more quickly, as it may result in the buyer not feeling the need to get their own inspection.
A home inspection examines and tests the following:
- Electrical Systems
- Heating & Cooling Systems
- Plumbing and Fixtures
These areas can make or break the sale of your home, and depending on what is found, can affect your ultimate sale price. Having a potential buyer discover issues as they try to purchase your home can derail the process. It can also potentially result in a lower sale price, or in fixes you agree to make pre-sale. In either case, it is better to know where you stand in advance so you can make the necessary preparations.
