A professional home inspection can detect problems or concerns which you may want to eliminate prior to placing your home on the market. Knowing about problems or needed repairs can allow them to be fixed before they prevent a successful sale. A buyer may be more willing to commit to a sale when there are no major concerns.
Some real estate professionals believe it may be more profitable to make repairs in advance than to lower the selling price later. If known issues are addressed, buyers may be less likely to reopen negotiations for a lower price or, worse, walk away from a potential sale.
The American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) has some useful tips for sellers or potential sellers. Give your home a competitive edge by making sure it is in good physical condition. This not only makes your home more attractive and desirable, it also simplifies the negotiation process when the time comes for the buyers pre-purchase inspection. According to home inspection experts, approximately half the resale homes in the market today have at least one significant defect. Don't let it be a surprise! Routine maintenance is the best way to prevent major, costly problems from developing in the first place. If you have been putting off those repairs, now is the time to make them. The following 6-point checklist contains suggestions from the ASHI website.
