The Difference Between a Buyer and Seller Home Inspection

Inspections are an important part of the home-buying process, informing all interested parties of the condition of a home. Different types of inspections are available for different situations, making it difficult to tell them apart. Whatever inspection you need, Trident Inspection Group offers client-focused home inspection services that will help you make an informed decision. In this article, we’ll look at the difference between a buyer home inspection and a seller home inspection.

Buyer and Seller Home Inspections

Who Needs a Buyer Home Inspection?

Just as the name indicates, a buyer home inspection is initiated by the interested buyer of a home during the real estate transaction. Once they submit their offer, they will continue their due diligence with an inspection to ensure no major issues hinder the home’s sale. Buyer home inspections will influence the pending negotiations based on the nature and severity of flaws the inspector may uncover. With these inspections, the potential buyers of the home are typically in the driver’s seat.

Who Needs a Seller Home Inspection?

Sellers who want to be proactive will often schedule a seller inspection, known as a pre-listing inspection, before they even place their home for sale on the market. These inspections put the seller in the driver’s seat because you can learn what flaws exist in your home and address them on your timeline with the contractors of your choosing. A pre-listing inspection will help sellers gain the trust of future buyers and real estate agents and can, therefore, give your home an edge in the competitive real estate market.
