Many homeowners choose to get a pre-listing inspection because it will give them insight into their home so that they know what to expect & can make repairs before listing their home.
The majority of buyers choose to get a buyer’s inspection, so a pre-listing inspection is a good idea for homeowners, so that the buyer’s inspection doesn’t find any major defects that the owner didn’t know about.
Benefits of a Pre-Listing Inspection:
- Can reveal problems that the owner wasn’t aware of
- Is useful for comparing to the buyer’s inspection
- Allows the owner & realtor to properly price the home when listing
- Creates trust with potential buyers
- Increase market value
