Selling Advice

Do You Need Pre-Sale Inspections?

You’ve decided to sell and you’re ready to bring in the painters, carpenters and stagers. Do you need to bring in the home inspectors, pest inspectors and structural engineers?

Why Do a Pre-Sale Inspection?

The market is shifting and buyers are facing challenges understanding how the house will shift in value in the next few years and even in the next few months. When a potential buyer is able to look at the pre-sale inspections, they are able to calculate what costs are coming in the short term and long term. They understand the house and are educated. 

Love Over Fear

We all fear the unknown and when a buyer is making an offer on your house, if the details are known, they can make their highest and best offer with less fear. Your house looks beautiful! They love it but what are they going to find out in the disclosures and the inspections?

When a buyer can see all of the little issues with a house, they understand the purchase on a whole different level. They can picture themselves working with house and making the house their home. There’s a beauty and an integrity in sharing all of the information at the beginning of the process, it creates a positive feeling for the transaction and leads to a more successful escrow. You may even get an offer that has no contingencies because the buyer is able to evaluate and do due diligence from the reports prior to their offer. 

Escrows Born in Knowledge Are More Likely to Stay in Contract

The market is shifting and is very property specific during the changes. A house with the pre-sale inspections done attracts the buyer that wants the house and understands where it is as an investment. The buyer is prepared to enter into the contract and the house is much more likely to stay in contract and close escrow.
