Sellers & Homeowners

Eventually the buyer of your home is going to have a home inspection conducted. You may as well know what they are going to find by getting the information first. Having an inspection performed ahead of time helps in many other ways:

  1. It allows you to see your home through the eyes of a critical third-party.

    Some houses don't need inspecting

    Some houses don't need inspecting

  2. It helps you to price your home realistically.
  3. It permits you to make repairs ahead of time so that:
    1. Defects won’t become negotiating stumbling blocks later.
    2. There is no delay in obtaining the Use and Occupancy permit.
    3. You have the time to get reasonably priced contractors or make the repairs yourself—-if qualified.
  4. It may encourage the buyer to waive the inspection contingency.
  5. It may alert you to items of immediate concern, such as active Wood Destroying Organisms or electrical safety issues.
  6. It may relieve buyer’s concerns and suspicions.
  7. It reduces your liability by adding professional supporting documentation to your disclosure statement.
  8. It can alert you to immediate safety issues before agents and visitors tour your home.
