Listing Inspections

Real Estate Professionals,  Protect Yourself
 
Home Inspections, once believed to be an unnecessary extravagance, have in recent years become an invaluable asset to real estate agents, home sellers, home buyers, mortgagers and real estate attorneys alike. Seller Disclosure Statements and dozens of other legal documents are designed to protect the buyer, the mortgager and title company, often the realtor winds up unprotected.  There are a hundred things that can disrupt a sale, not the least of which is a deficiency in the home you are representing.  I can help you with a pre-listing inspection.
 
Many homeowners donít know there is something wrong with their home and fail to disclose the deficient conditions.  Sure enough a potential buyer has an inspection and a problem is found and a solid deal is suddenly shaky.  A prelisting inspection can help the seller in pricing his home competitively. Having a prelisting inspection may allow a buyer to feel comfortable enough to waive the inspection contingency on an offer.
 
The advantages of a prelisting inspection are many
 
  • Helps to protect you and your client
  • Home may sell faster
  • Home may sell for more money  
  • Fewer buyers walking away because there may be a problem with the house
  • Less 11th-hour re-negotiations based on the inspector's findings
  • Limit  helpless feelings that an inspector has raised an issue that is not a big problem
  • Fewer buyers getting cold feet when they find out the home is not perfect
  • No more buyers walking away because they don't have time for an inspection
