Seller’s Pre-listing Inspection

If you’re thinking of listing your home for sale, eventually your potential buyers are going to conduct an inspection. You may as well know what they are going to find by getting there first. Having an inspection performed ahead of time helps in many other ways:

  • It allows you to see your home through the eyes of a critical and neutral third party.
  • It alerts you to immediate safety issues before agents and visitors tour your home.
  • It may alert you to items of immediate concern, such as radon gas.
  • It permits you to make repairs ahead of time so that
    • Defects won’t become negotiating stumbling blocks later.
    • There is no delay in obtaining the Use and Occupancy Permit.
    • You have the time to get reasonably priced contractors or make the repairs yourself (if qualified).
  • It helps you to price your home realistically.
  • It may relieve potential buyers concerns and suspicions.
  • It may encourage the buyer to waive his/her inspection contingency.
  • It reduces your liability by adding professional supporting documentation to your disclosure statement.

Copies of the inspection report, along with receipts for any repairs, should be made available to potential buyers.
