What Is a Pre-Listing Home Inspection?

503 views 1 month ago
If you want to gain an advantage when selling your house, consider a pre-listing home inspection.

A pre-listing home inspection is a professional inspection that is paid for by the seller and points out any problems with the home. Sellers usually do it well before they start showing the property.

The inspector will look for flaws in the home the same way a prospective homebuyer would. This includes cracks in the walls and floors, water damage, problems with the mechanical systems and damaged roof shingles. The home inspector will zero in on items that should be fixed, replaced or removed.

Most agents advise you to fix items that are flagged in the pre-listing inspection, especially the major ones. If you decide not to, you will likely see the same items on the buyer's home inspection report, which the buyer could then use to renegotiate the price.

A pre-listing home inspection can help ensure you get the right price for your home.
