Why should you have your home inspected before selling it?
Do you want to sell your home for the highest possible price in the shortest amount of time? Whether your home is in Coral Springs, Boca Raton, Lake Worth, Jupiter, Wellington or Lantana, the best way to get this to happen is to have your house in the best condition it can be in.
In today’s market, many sales contracts are contingent upon a completion of a satisfactory inspection. What does this mean? The buyer has the opportunity to hire an independent home inspector firm to come and inspect your home. This inspection can cause the buyer to back out of the deal because of the findings.
Another problem could be that the buyer’s inspection uncovers items that you were not aware of. This may cause a delay in the closing for repairs, which may have to be paid for by the owner, or, the buyers could request a reduction in the price of the home.
List With Confidence
Wouldn’t you like to be able to tell a potential buyer that you have had the house checked out by an independent inspection firm, provide them with a copy of the report and be able to make the whole process go more smoothly?
This gives you the ability to present any issues “as is” and indicate them in the purchase price. As the owner, you can also wait for the buyers inspection firm to find these items and again, causing possible delays and costing you more money.
Do it Your Way
One of the biggest benefits of having this type of home inspection done early-on in the process of selling your home, is that if there are any problems discovered that require repairs or replacement of these items, you can do them on your own terms, by your own repair personnel, and on your own schedule.
When a problem isn’t found until the buyer has their inspection performed, it can only cause a delay in the process. Doing things your way and at your pace is best.
