Sellers Inspections (sometimes referred to as pre-listing inspections) are becoming more popular throughout Florida. Show potential buyers that your home is ready for them to MOVE IN. Having a pre-listing inspection of your home will allow you to address any potential issues ahead of time. Minimize market time by correcting problems, adjusting your sales price to reflect the FAIR estimated repairs (not buyers’ OVER-INFLATED estimates), or provide the information necessary to disclose the “as is” condition of your home. Avoid prolonging the sale of your home to wait for repairs and / or being forced to reduce your sales price. Eliminate “repairs” as a negotiating tool for your buyers.
- You can schedule the inspection at your convenience.
- The Inspection Report provides a third-party, unbiased opinion from a certified InterNACHI inspector to offer to potential buyers.
- The inspection might alert you to any items of immediate personal concern.
- You can assist the inspector during the inspection, something normally not done during a buyer’s inspection.
- The report can help you realistically price the home if problems exist.
- The report can help you substantiate a higher asking price if problems don’t exist or have been corrected.
- Problems revealed ahead of time give you time to shop for competitive contractors, and either make repairs – making the home show better, or attach repair estimates removing over-inflated buyer-procured estimates from the negotiation table.
- The Home Inspection Report can be used as a marketing tool.
- The report might relieve a prospective buyer’s unfounded suspicions, before they walk away.
- A seller inspection lightens negotiations and 11th-hour re-negotiations.
- The report might encourage the buyer to waive the inspection contingency.
- The report provides full-disclosure protection from future legal claims.
