Homeowners who are trying to sell their homes tend to dread the inspection portion of the real estate process, fearing what expensive flaws this evaluation may uncover. If you are considering putting your house on the market, there are some things you can do to help better position your listing. GreenLInk Home Inspections is the premier Long Island provider of inspection and engineering services, and our seasoned experience can benefit you. Here are some reasons why a pre-listing inspection completed before you list your home for sale is a wise investment that will pay off.
Improve Your Chances of a Faster Closing
When you have a pre-listing inspection, you can get a head start on necessary repairs. Plus, you can get them repaired when you have the time and resources to do so. Many people don’t realize that towns require permits to prove flood remediation and that these repairs take time and money. You can save a lot of time by proactively repairing flood damage, rather than waiting for the buyer to demand quick repairs after their own inspection.
Leverage the Marketing of Your Home
A pre-listing inspection will give you an edge with your seller marketing because you can highlight the inspection results. This will help you build confidence among potential buyers and even realtors in the integrity of your home. There are common issues that can arise from an inspection that you will have the opportunity to repair prior to listing, such as plumbing, electrical, termite evidence, environmental issues, and more. When you take initiative with a pre-listing inspection, you can demonstrate that you fixed any items that needed to be repaired.
