Everyone Wins with a pre-Listing Inspection 


Put More Money in Your Pocket



Regardless of the marketplace…It can be a seller’s advantage to perform a professional pre-sale inspection.


In today’s market, if there’s been a pre-listing inspection, repairs made, accurate pricing, and the house staged to show… the odds are the house will sell quicker.


The inspection can put more money in your pocket, facilitate a smoother transaction, put potential buyers at ease, reduce negotiating points, and bypass annoying delays.

ü  It’s cheaper to fix a deficiency before the sale, than to negotiate the price down.


ü  Pre-listing inspections and pre-sale repairs can speed home sales by as much as 30%.


ü  It’s been suggested that for every $1 of identified repairs, the buyer looks for double that in price reduction… ie., paying $5,000 to repair a leaky roof before putting a house on the market is cheaper than having to lower the selling price of your home by $10,000.


ü  Spending for a home inspection is worth every cent and can keep thousands in your pocket.
