Pre-Listing Inspections

Pre Listing Inspections – Seller Inspections


Seller inspections are easier to schedule and are not under the time constraints of a sales agreement’s inspection contingencies.

The seller can schedule the inspections at the seller’s convenience.

It might alert the seller to any items of immediate concern, such as radon gas or active termite infestation.

The seller can assist the inspector during the inspection, something normally not done during a buyer’s inspection.

The report can help the seller realistically price the home if problems exist.

The report can help the seller substantiate a higher asking price if problems don’t exist or have been corrected.

A seller inspection reveals problems ahead of time, which may result in your home showing better.

  • Gives the seller time to make repairs and shop for competitive contractors.
  • Permits the seller to attach repair estimates or paid invoices to the inspection report.
  • Removes over-inflated buyer-procured estimates from the negotiation table.

The report might alert the seller to any immediate safety issues found, before agents and visitors tour the home.

A seller inspection permits a clean home inspection report to be used as a marketing tool.

A seller inspection is the ultimate gesture in forthrightness on the part of the seller.

The report might relieve a prospective buyer’s unfounded suspicions, before they walk away.

The deal is less likely to fall apart, the way they often do, when a buyer’s inspection unexpectedly reveals a last-minute problem.
