The first tip of 7 tips for selling your home faster and for more money is a doing a Home Pre-inspection.
Why Sellers Should Do A Home Inspection
Home Pre-inspections show that you’re willing as a seller to be transparent. Being transparent gives buyers a lot more confidence in your property aiding in selling your home faster. A Home Pre-Inspection is done by a professional who goes over your home in detail. The Inspections cover everything from condition of roof to looking for moisture in the basement. They test things like your appliances, furnace and air conditioner to ensure they are working properly. They will highlight everything for you as sellers, from potential safety issues to regular maintenance issues that buyers may focus in on.
The Home Inspector will provide a detailed written report with all issues found, categorized by criticality to the sale of the home. They will step through this with the sellers so that they understand what items should be fixed. Fixing the critical items will help in selling your home faster by eliminating issues for the buyers to feel like they need to negotiate on.
The Home Inspector will not be the one fixing any issues, but your realtor can provide referrals of other professionals who can resolve any identified issues. People like a General Contractor, Plumber or Electrician are the most commonly needed.
This also allows you, as the seller, to catch issues early that might affect the outcome of a sale.
A Pre-Inspection highlights issues before you go to market. This is also a benefit to provide this information to your buyers so that there are no surprises once an offer is made. Once you have the results of the Home Pre-Inspection, you can decide whether to fix the issues or pricing your property accordingly.
