Why Should a Seller Have a Home Inspection?

One of the most compelling reasons is the comfort factor that it gives potential buyers.

Give The Potential Buyer Peace Of Mind.

Eliminate the need for buyers to concern themselves with the condition of the property. This gives them a much more relaxed view on the aspects of living there.  It allows them to concentrate on seeing themselves as the owners, without clouding their thoughts with worries of whether the home is a good investment. 

Trust Plays a Large Part in Any Home Purchase.

Every legitimate effort you make to build trust with a potential buyer will bring them that much closer to making the decision to buy your home. It's very important to create "curb appeal" when placing your home on the market.  But once they begin to decide whether your home is the one they want, you want them to be confident and comfortable with the condition of your home. Many things play into that decision.  And trust about you and the home's condition is a key factor.  A Pre-Listing Inspection lets them know your home is in good shape.  They will feel good about you and your home.  That can make all the difference.

A Pre-Listing Inspection Strengthens Your Position as a Seller.

  • By having an inspection before selling, you're prepared for items that may show up during the buyer's inspection.  You can prevent extended negotiations if the repairs are made ahead of time.  Fewer contingencies in the sales contract will undoubtedly make the closing much smoother.
  • You will be able to negotiate from a much stronger position if you have an inspection report to compare against your buyer's report.  In many cases, if your report is provided by a certified inspector, the buyer will not need to retain their own inspector.  And if I inspect your home, I will be available to answer questions the prospective buyer may have.
  • It gives you ample time to get estimates for any repairs that may need to be made. You have more time to get quotes on repairs.
  • If repairs are needed, you choose who does the work.
  • In the State of Georgia, sellers are responsible for providing a disclosure statement. This lists all known problems with your property.  Your Pre-Listing Inspection supports your disclosure claims.
