Why should you get a pre-listing home inspection if you are selling your home? The reasons are numerous. First, it prepares you for the buyer’s inspection. Imagine spending a lot of time and money fixing items to sell your home, only to find out the buyer’s inspector has found a completely different issue that you had no idea existed. This can really put your deal in jeopardy.
Also, when you have the opportunity to fix things ahead of time, you are able to make sure it gets done right by a contractor you trust. You also get to sell your home knowing that the transaction will be smooth, and negotiations will be easy.
