Selling your house? It will cost you a lot less if you have a pre-listing inspection
Have you been thinking of selling your house? If so, then I have a few words of advice for you. Don’t wait until the last minute to get it an pre-listing inspection! A pre-listing inspection is a great way to make sure that all of the things on your list are in working order before putting it on the market. There are many benefits from having this done, including saving money and time. In this blog post we will discuss what a pre listing inspection entails and why you should always do one before selling your home!
A pre-listing inspection will help you catch many problems that could cost a lot of money to fix while your home is on the market, or worse yet, cause some prospective buyers to pass up buying it all together! Before hiring an inspector be sure that they are qualified and certified by: InterNACHI (International Association of Certified Home Inspectors).
As a seller, you want to get the best price for your house. Getting an inspection prior to listing will help determine if there are costly repairs or updates that need done before putting up your home on the market. This is critical because it can save you money in potential negotiations with buyers and their agents who may ask for steep discounts if they feel the home has major problems.
You should also discuss what you as a seller can do to prepare your home for sale such as painting, cleaning and staging so it will show better than other homes on the market. Your agent knows local buyers who want to buy older properties like yours and they know which ones are selling quickly because of their condition and which ones are not selling. They can provide you with advice on how to prepare your home for sale and what buyers will expect from it in order to put forth their best offer.
Selling a house is expensive but knowing the cost of repairs or updates that may be needed could save you money if done properly prior to putting up your home for sale. If you are looking to sell, then contact your local real estate professional for more information on how they can help you get the best price for your property!
