Selling a Home: How to Generate
More BUYER INTEREST in Your Home


Selling a home?

   Sellers can benefit by getting a pre-market home inspection as well!  Having your home inspected BEFORE you put it on the market gives you an immediate and distinct advantage over other sellers in your area.
  
Here's how it works:

   You hire a qualified Home Inspector to perform a complete home inspection on the property you are selling. 

   If everything checks out (no major defects), then you have an immediate advantage over every other home for sale in your area.  The inspector furnishes you with a printed report stating that there are no major defects with the home at the time of the inspection.  This tells every prospective buyer that your home has ALREADY been inspected for defects before they even tour the home.  They'll no longer wonder if there are any unpleasant surprises waiting for them if they purchase your home.  

   If the inspector discovers a problem or defect with the home, you'll have a chance to correct

   You may decide to adjust your selling price to reflect the defect that needs to be corrected, or you may have the problem corrected so that you can get the MOST out of your home sale.  If you correct the defect, you should contact your inspector to re-inspect the property and verify that repairs have been made, and issue you a printed report stating that there are no major problems with the home. 


   Could there BE a better selling tool than telling prospective buyers that your home has no major defects???

So, for a few hundred dollars in inspection costs, you stand to:
  • sell your home FASTER, and for top dollar
  • gain an immediate advantage over other sellers in your area
  • reduce the chances of a buyer discovering a defect and souring the deal 
  • eliminate 11th-hour negotiations over the monetary value of repairs
In addition....
  •  a seller has the option of choosing their own inspector, rather than being at the mercy of the buyer's choice of inspectors
  •  the report will show that you're bargaining in good faith, and might encourage buyer to accept defects in the home that they otherwise may NOT have.
