Home inspections are not only meant for houses that you are intending to buy. They can also be performed on a home that you are planning to sell. A pre-listing home inspection can make a huge difference in how quickly the home sells and for how much it is priced. Not only that, armed with the knowledge of the complete condition of your home, you can make repairs as you get it ready to place on the market, making the sales process simple for all involved. TEK Inspections has experience conducting pre-listing inspections throughout the Reno area. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of these valuable inspections.
1. Price Your Home Correctly
When you have your home inspected before listing it for sale, you will have a thorough understanding of the complete condition of the house and all its major systems. You can price your home correctly based on any repairs that need to be made, or if your home is in excellent condition, you may be able to price it higher than you previously thought.
2. Encourage a Simple Sales Process
Being upfront and honest about necessary repairs or issues in your home can help homebuyers feel more secure about making an offer. Some people enjoy doing repair work or renovations. If they have a full understanding of the house and its true condition, they may feel more comfortable about moving forward with the sales process.
3. Make Major Repairs
If you want to sell your home quickly and for the best possible price, making any major repairs before it’s listed can help make that happen. Once the repairs are made, you can have it re-inspected, confirming that the home has had improvements made. If any serious issues like mold or radon are discovered, you can also address those before placing your home on the market.
4. Build Buyer Confidence
For most people, a home purchase is the biggest financial decision they will ever make. They will feel much better about risking such a large investment with a pre-listing inspection. This one step may eliminate any doubts the home buyer may have, and they can be confident knowing they are getting a home that is worth what they’re paying.
