Pre-Listing Home Inspections
(Seller-Certified Home Program)
Listing inspections are very good for the homeowner who may not be in tune with the condition of their home. A great many sales are cancelled due to the buyer’s shock at the “functional condition” of the home. It may look great but have serious technical, safety, or functional issues present without the owner’s knowledge. Having the home inspected prior to placing on the market is the ideal way to identify issues and either repair or disclose the issue found in the inspection report. Obviously, repairing the items would be the most beneficial toward completing the sale. However, there may be financial reasons where the owner can’t make the repairs. Disclosing them up front and pricing the home based upon that disclosure will often produce a higher net sales price for the property owner.
