Why It’s Great to Get a Prelisting Inspection
For every $1000 of perceived defect, the buyer will ask for a $3000 – $5000 credit. Buyers use the home inspection as a way to get a better deal by negotiating the sales price down.
You want to know about the issues upfront, not when the buyer’s inspector shows up.
In the end this can save you thousands, because again all your cards are on the table and the buyers will base their offer knowing your homes defects. There will be no surprises when it comes to negotiating the buyer’s reply to inspections. THIS IS HUGE! The inspection process is where buyers ask for a credit and/or repairs. It is easiest and much less stressful just to let them know upfront.
Now the buyer can make a decision knowing all the facts about your home. It is like selling a Certified Pre-Owned Home!! Buyers feel more comfortable having this detailed report.
